Online Bill Payments Rise as AssureBuy Announces Release of
View N Pay™ Platinum Suite for Municipalities
SCHAUMBURG, IL. – (November 22, 2005) – AssureBuy, a Visa PCI certified payment gateway and provider
of online invoice payment services, today announced the release of its new View N Pay™ Platinum Suite
for Municipalities. Using View N Pay™, municipalities can post invoices for monthly or one-time
services electronically on the Internet, allowing residents to pay by credit card or electronic check.
AssureBuy’s new Platinum Suite for Municipalities is an extension of AssureBuy’s popular View N Pay™
service, with features specifically designed for electronic payments to municipalities, such as
online utility payments, licenses, registrations, applications, and even taxes.
As an innovative pioneer in the electronic payments industry, AssureBuy has developed a robust
suite of payment processing services for organizations of all types, including municipalities,
retailers, mail order firms, associations, distributors, universities and web-based businesses.
AssureBuy’s proven, flexible, and reliable products have processed tens of millions of transactions
representing billions in revenue for its clients.
"With another postal rate increase coming soon, municipalities continue to see the costs of printing
and mailing paper invoices rise," said Gary Whitney, CEO of AssureBuy. "By using View N Pay™,
municipalities can reduce their billing expenses by 50% or more and at the same time provide more
convenience to residents."
AssureBuy Releases View N Pay™ Platinum Suite for Municipalities: November 22, 2005
Many municipalities have yet to offer residents the ability to pay fees by credit card,
despite the fact that credit card usage as a form of bill payment has nearly doubled in the
past three years. According to Aite Group, a New-York based research firm, the use of credit
cards and ACH transactions for Internet bill payment is growing by 49% per year.
A recent Gartner Group study estimated that the average municipality spends over $14.00 preparing,
sending and receiving payment for each paper bill. It is estimated that a municipality can save
from 50% to 70% of their current paper billing costs by allowing residents to pay these bills online.
The number of invoices paid online is expected to grow to 3.6 billion by the year 2007,
making on-line invoicing and payment the fastest growing web application, growing even faster
than on-line music downloads. (Celent Communications, March 2003)
