Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) June 20, 2013
Today, Check launched a new expedited payment option to its 8+ million customers. Using the service, customers can expedite same-day payments on the fly from their mobile devices, escaping hefty late fees and penalties typically associated with late payments.
Expedited payment services saved consumers more than $4.8 billion in potential late fees in 2010 (source: Javelin Strategy & Research report, 2011). These savings are expected to climb to $6.3 billion by 2015. Check’s new expedited payment option will be priced at $14.99, which will substantially outweigh typical credit card late fee charges, ranging from $20 to $50.
“This new payment option creates substantial consumer savings and fits well with our strategy of providing the ability to pay anyone, anywhere, and with any type of payment method,” said Guy Goldstein, CEO of Check. “Our goal is to provide customers with cost-efficient and convenient choices. Convenience is all about speeding up a bill payment on your mobile device in a matter of seconds.”
Launched in 2008 and privately funded, Check is a leading mobile payments company. Its free, top-rated mobile app is used by 8 million+ customers to pay bills. For more information, visit Check.me.
