U.S. Bank Bill Pay: It’s Time for Resuscitation

Boston, November 17, 2021 – U.S. consumers pay a lot of bills—approximately 15.5 billion bills in the last year, shelling out roughly US$4.6 trillion. And 62% of the 15.5 billion bills paid in the last year were paid digitally. As more and more of daily life has become digital, consumer expectation for a one-click, frictionless bill payment experience has often been better addressed by a biller’s solution rather than a financial institution's solution. This reality has resulted in bank bill pay solutions steadily losing ground against biller-direct solutions. The implications of FIs losing ground in this space are huge and include missed opportunities to drive customer engagement, build loyalty, and increase revenue.
