How to Pay Bills at ExpressPay Bayad Center

/ No Comments
Philippines – Just recently I discovered another payment center called ExpressPay! I don’t know when this payment center started? But it was a great help for me which it gives me another options in paying my monthly bills as well as receiving and transferring remittances.


For years, I've tried using many payment centers in the country, but most of the time I go to Western Union, for all we know Western Union is perhaps the most popular payment and remittance center in the country and because of that many customers patronized the said Bayad Center, which gives long lineup of customer waiting for their turn to be called and that’s a little bit of a hassle especially if you are a type of persons who does not want to wait.

And if you are that kind of person that do not want to wait, perhaps the answer for you is ExpressPay? As I have noticed this new payment center is not yet popular in our area, maybe people can hardly notice the payment center because it’s small just like a small booth where there is only one personnel to entertain any customer or maybe customer are confused and somewhat distrustful and instead choose the same Bayad Center that they use to go for paying their bills.

This is why ExpressPay is the best way to pay your bills because there are new there is no pile of customer waiting for their turn to be called where only a few customers are currently using their services but sooner or later we expect that a lot people will start using their services as the days and months goes bye.

Just like the other Bayad Center, ExpressPay accept the most common bills like meralco bills, internet bills, water bills, credit card bills and others bills, they also accept money remittance, travel and tours ticketing and loads. To be sure if your bills are accredited by this new Bayad Center kindly asked the personnel inside the booth.

For now, when I am paying my bills I go directly to ExpressPay and it’s already my second month of using their services.
