and no forms to fill out,” said David Shapiro, senior vice president payments,
According to a recent report published by Mercator Advisory Group, one of the
main benefits of this service is convenience. Instead of relying on
traditional mail service or the Internet, customers would rather visit a
location near their home or place of work where they can make a payment and
instantly receive a receipt showing that they have paid. This convenience
factor allows consumers to manage their money more closely.¹
