Search giant Google’s Tez app makes it much easier for Indians to pay their monthly recurring bills without having to step out of their house. Although paying bills online is a fairly old concept now, Tez simply does the job of making the whole procedure a lot easier. How, you ask? Well, paying certain bills over their respective apps and websites may be troublesome at times due to various reasons
Sometimes you’d have to remember their login details and in some cases, even change them at a regular interval. Sometimes their app or website would be inaccessible due to some technical issues or you’d miss the deadline probably because all those email and SMS reminders somehow went unnoticed. To eliminate all these issues once and for all, Tez has partnered with over 80 billers.
In this article, we are going to discuss the procedure to pay your monthly, recurring bills using Google Tez. Before you proceed, you will need to setup your Google Tez account. If you haven’t done that already, here’s a simple step-by-step guide to do so.
How to pay bills using Tez
Step 1: Assuming that you have ensured that your biller is supported by Tez (if not, here’s the full, updated list), go to Google Tez app > tap ‘New’ under ‘Payments.’
Step 2: It suggests a few prominent billers right below the search bar. You can also search for them. In my case, I searched for Idea Mobile to pay my monthly postpaid bill.
Step 3: Upon tapping the biller name, it prompted me to add it to my account so that I can easily pay bills and keep track of my bill history.
Step 4: Tap the option ‘Get Started.’ To link my Idea postpaid biller with Tez, I was asked to enter a valid 10 digit mobile number and account name.
Step 5: Upon proceeding further, I was asked to review account information, i.e., mobile number and account name, before tapping ‘Link account.’
Step 6: Upon successfully linking the account, I was asked to make payment. All I had to do was enter the amount and process the payment over UPI.
Similarly, you can add any of your preferred billers to your Tez account by following the procedure we’ve just discussed in this article.
