Canada Post mobile app now offers bill management and payment

TORONTO, Jan. 23, 2013 /CNW/ - Canada's most downloaded free mobile business app will now enable users to stay organized in their household finances, for free. The Canada Post mobile application, available on all mobile platforms, now includes epost, Canada's digital mailbox that enables bill management, simplified online payment through your bank and a personal safety deposit box. The app already helps users track packages, find the closest postal outlet, postage rate or postal code.

"For busy Canadians, saving time, money and staying organized when it comes to managing your household is important," says Kerry Munro, Group President of the Digital Delivery Network. "There are many tools out there, but none have the convenience and security that epost does. It aggregates your household bills into one place, which means you only need one username and password to efficiently take care of your finances."

To help everyone reach their financial resolutions this year, here are three tips to stay better organized online with your bills:

  1. Avoid unnecessary monthly fees: Many companies are now charging to send paper bills. By enlisting your documents via epost, you can have these documents delivered by Canada Post digitally and use all the organizational tools such as calendar reminders to ensure you don't miss a payment.
  2. Streamline your bills: By consolidating your bills online with a tool like epost, which offers more than 250 bills and statements, you can keep track of all your financial records on one platform and one username and password combination. Since epost is linked to the major banks, it also makes it easy to continue paying online.
  3. Stay secure: epost maintains top-level security to protect your accounts and personal information. Documents are encrypted and stored with bank-grade security. Bills and statements are stored and organized within epost folders for seven years. Files can now be accessed within a few minutes instead of perusing through years of cluttered file folders.
