USPS Online Payment Services Business Edition
The Postal Service this week announced a new online service aimed at simplifying transactions for business customers.
USPS' Online Payment Services Business Edition enables users to make bill payments electronically rather than mailing checks.
The service, offered in partnership with CheckFree Corp., saves business customers time on managing accounts payable, according to postal officials.
Businesses subscribe to the service for $9.95 per month. The service is offered through the Postal Service's Web site.
With the service, customers enter invoice information, such as adjustments and credits, along with the bill payments. Managers can determine employee access to the process, and schedule regular payments for fixed amounts.
Customers can also export payment history into financial software packages, such as Intuit Inc.'s Quicken or Microsoft Corp.'s Money.
