With time, we all didn’t realize how things went from traditional to digital. One day you are standing in a queue to get your mobile recharge done; the next, you are sitting at your home to top it up. Undoubtedly, digital has picked up its pace, and now, it’s never looking back. Honestly, will you go for online electricity bill payment or offline? Paying electricity bills was always considered a tedious task and a time-consuming one.
However, this and various other tasks can quickly be done now with a few taps on your smartphone. There are many applications on your smartphone that help you complete these tasks efficiently. But what’s the point of keeping multiple applications for multiple tasks? It sounds like a ‘Traditional Digital’ method. The best way is to go for a single app.
Personally, I have been using the Bajaj Finserv application for the past six months now, and it is an all-in-one package deal.
(Note: Please don’t consider this write-up a promotion for any brand, as I’m just sharing my personal experience.)
My grandfather, the person in my family who looks after all kinds of bills and finds it a fun task, is quite happy about how I made his life easier with one application. However, when I showed him how an online electricity bill payment is made with just a few taps, he was disappointed at first because this has put a halt on his trips to deposit the bill.
But, he was surprised by the fact how things have evolved. So now, instead of going on a day trip to deposit bills, he enjoys his retirement life.
What are the benefits of online payment?
● Avoid unnecessary hassle
When you opt for digital payments, you opt for ease and comfort. Do you want to step out in the harsh weather and waste energy? Digital payments have ensured that people don’t have to waste their money, energy, time or fuel to travel. Remember, you are just one tap away.
● Rewards and Cashback
If you are lucky enough, you might get exciting prizes, such as cashback, coupon codes, etc., every time you do a transaction online. There’s no benefit nowadays in cash payments. For even making online electricity bill payment, you might get a good amount of cashback which serves as a profit.
● Safe and secure payments
Along with all its advantages, there are several disadvantages too of online bill payment, such as financial fraud or scams. As I told you, it’s better to use a genuine application, and it is very important to avoid clicking on unnecessary links you receive. Also, please never share your UPI pin or other personal card details.
