BAYAD CENTER REACHES OUT TO THE FILIPINO COMMUNITIES WORLDWIDE
With its vision of making bills payment service more convenient and closer to every Filipino, Bayad Center officially launches its first online payment facility — the BAYAD CENTER ONLINE.
- (International Market) BC Online primarily caters to Overseas Filipino Workers and Residents who send money to pay for utility bills, but end up sending more because funds are often misused for other things. This growing concern prompted Bayad Center to develop this platform.
- (Domestic Market) BC Online also caters to Filipinos in the country who wish to use the Bayad Center facility, but prefers to pay their bills in the comfort of their homes or offices. Paying through BC Online is the same as paying directly to the business center.
TYPES OF BILLS ACCEPTED
More than 170 types of bills are accepted in the BC Online Facility. From basic utility bills to tuition fees and online shopping payments, BC Online brings the Bayad Center one-stop shop promise to the digital space. (Attached is the list of bills accepted.)
MODES OF PAYMENT
Initially, BC Online accepts any type of Credit Card as mode of payment. Soon, the facility will allow the use of Debit Cards and Electronic Wallets such as GCash and SmartMoney for settlement.
Consistent with the Bayad Center over-the-counter experience, posting of payments is within 24 hours, if not real-time, mainly due to Bayad Center’s direct partnership with each Biller Partner.
BC Online charges the customer with a merchant discount rate of 3.6% of the amount to be paid, which is common for card payments. There is also a minimal system fee of Php 1.00 for Domestic transactions, and Php 20.00 for transactions made abroad.
The Bayad Center Online can be accessed through www.bayadcenteronline.com, with no minimum bandwidth required. This means that the facility was built to consider the slowest internet connection from the most remote area, and from varying displays like desktop, tablets, and smartphones. As this is an online facility, BC Online is available 24 hours a day, any day of the week, globally.
