The U.S. Postal Service is offering its business customers a new online service that allows users to electronically make bill payments. The service is offered in partnership with CheckFree Corp.
Subscribers to USPS Online Payment Services Business Edition can enter invoice information, including adjustments and credits, to be sent along with their bill payments. They can also set access privileges for multiple employees, allowing staff to contribute to the various stages of bill paying, while assigning final approval of outbound payments to management.
Additional features include the ability to schedule recurring payments for fixed amounts and to receive electronic bills from credit card, insurance, and utility companies. Customers can also export payment history into popular financial software packages such as QuickBooks, Quicken or Microsoft Money.
