when i get lazy, i let bills pile up in my inbox. i just paid a bill for the security company today that was about a month late. now, i'm guessing that most companies won't ping my credit or turn my account over to a collection agency after that short a time, but it's probably not a good idea. most of my bills i can pay online, but very few of them have an auto-pay feature for whatever reason. it's in the best interests of companies to support auto-pay -- they get their monies and i don't have to remember to pay them. i actually just implemented the same feature for the company that i work for.
why don't more companies offer auto-pay?
