PaySimply, a Payment Source service, is pleased to announce it has extended its government bill payment capabilities to include municipal property taxes and utilities, and tuition payments to virtually all Canadian universities, colleges and private schools.
Originally facilitating federal tax payments to the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA), PaySimply has now grown to become the premier online destination for those looking to quickly and easily make bill payments using alternative payment methods not normally accepted by government institutions like credit cards, e-Transfer, PayPal, and in-person (cash/debit) at Canada Post outlets.
“Payment Source has always been about empowering financial inclusion by offering payment convenience, choice, and flexibility for people wanting to make payments,” said Robert Hyde, Vice President, Payment Services at Payment Source. “We believe PaySimply achieves just that for those looking to pay government and quasi-government institutions that typically accept more cumbersome ways to pay like cheque or pre-authorized debit.”
Besides providing their constituents with innovative methods of payment, government agencies also significantly benefit by drastically reducing their cheque processing costs. “And the best part is that there is no cost or work effort by the government agencies to implement PaySimply – we settle with them directly using their existing banking relationships,” says Mr. Hyde.
PaySimply has extended Payment Source’s mandate of offering Canadians alternative ways to transact, both online and offline, and helps government organizations reach those segments of the population who can’t or won’t use mainstream payment methods.
