More consumers chooseto pay their bills online
NEW YORK -- Many U.S. banks have reported an increase in online account enrollment following the recent anthrax scare as consumers became concerned about the safety of their mail.
Consumer Reports magazine says some online banking programs are better than others and suggests consumers comparison shop before signing up.
First, see if the banks you're interested in offer online bill payment, an integral part of banking over the Internet.
If they do, determine whether there are extra fees for bill payments and the number of days it takes the banks to pay bills. It's also important to know whether the banks will cover any fees if a payment is late.
