Online billing services can be compared by visiting each bank individually and researching their offerings or by viewing a third party site that provides bank comparisons. Websites providing such comparisons include such as FindABetterBank, Credio and TopTenReviews.Continue Reading
Using a comparison shopping site lets consumers look at the features offered by all banks simultaneously. The TopTenReviews site recommends one bank over others based on its features. This method has the advantage of the data already been reviewed and intelligently organized; however, it is a "one size fits all" solution.
FindABetterBank allows the user to search for all banks in the local area, not just those researched by the editors of the site. It also allows the customer to specify other features of the banks that might be of particular interest. It does not provide any editorial recommendations, however.
TopTenReviews and Credio are ad-supported, so their results may be influenced by advertisers including banks reviewed on the site. FindABetterBank is supported by selling consumer information to banks; that is, when customers provide information about themselves while searching for financial products, FindABetterBank sends this information as a report to a bank that might be interested to know what financial products consumers are searching for.Learn more about Personal Banking
