How about you? After all, electronic commerce is all the rage right now and it's convenient. But it does affect the volume of the Postal Service.
The fine people over at Your Postal Podcast asked a number of employees if they used electronic billing and payment. The responses were varied. I also asked that question last month and quite a few of you had something to say.
Do you pay your bills online? Or by check? Or a little of both? Go to the poll on the upper right hand corner and weigh in then leave a comment here.
Here's the poll:
Do you use electronic billing and payments?
- Never. I only use stamps.
- Rarely. Only when I have to.
- Sometimes. With just a few of my bills.
- Almost exclusively. It's convenient.
