It is a segment of the economy that represents approximately half of all household spending. That is why the folks at doxo started the company in the first place. The act of managing and paying all the bills in a typical household is one of the most frustrating and confounding tasks every family has to face. On average, households pay at least 10 or more bills every month and many of them juggle several online accounts, the occasional creditor that won’t take a credit card and a number of websites that won’t work with a mobile phone or tablet.
Now, about a decade after their establishment, the doxo system can point to millions of users and they can rightfully claim it has changed the way those millions pay their bills. It is the first crowd-sourced, consumer-centered bill paying solution. It means those millions of people can take full control of how they pay their bills, whether they do so via credit or debit card, direct transfer from a checking account or anything else that’s viable. They can also use a computer at home or they can use a phone or a tablet on the road.
The doxo payment system includes many features, such as an inbox so that any user can see which bills are due and click on each one to examine the full details. The payment service, called doxoPAY, allows the user to set up an auto-bill-pay feature for any payment, and to limit the amount, which serves a dual purpose; it allows you to keep track of your bill paying, and it also serves as something of an alarm.
