To pay an Optimum cable bill online, navigate to the Optimum website, and register as a user. Optimum says that its online bill payment is convenient and simple, and users can view statements right on the website.
People who sign up for online bill pay through Optimum should understand that paper bills are no longer sent. However, an email about the monthly statement is sent to a registered person's email address. Optimum says that its billing transactions are secure and password protected, and all one-time payments are shown on the account immediately. You also have the option of setting up an automatic payment, which means a payment automatically is made from your bank account or credit card each month.
Optimum does not impose a charge for using the online payment system. Benefits of the system include the ability for users to view payment history, print statements and see payment options at any time. In addition, users are sent payment reminders that help to remind them when a payment is due. Optimum says that since the system does not use paper, those who choose online bill pay are also playing a role in helping the environment and saving money by helping the company avoid mailing payments.
