Many utility companies have an online option to pay utility bills. These companies typically provide customers with an online option to view their bill, make changes to their information, turn their service on or off or change their service plan.
Some cities provide an online option to pay utility bills directly from the official city website. These transactions typically require a credit or debit card and the account information. Many utility companies also offer customers the option to make payment arrangements on their website. These typically require an active checking account and the bill must be up-to-date and only have current, not past-due, charges.
