Online payments offer a variety of benefits, including the saving of time and money, convenience and security. There is little offered by traditional payment methods that isn't done better with online payments.
Online payments are much faster than traditional ones. Payment can be nearly instantaneous in some cases. As well as saving time, online payments save money; they don't require one to spend money on stamps, envelopes and checks. Online payments are far more convenient all around, and they are typically considered safer than traditional mailed payments. For example, sending a check through the mail with numerous bits of personal information creates numerous risks not associated with online payments.
