Consumers can pay bills in cash through kiosks
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (6/9/08)--Consumers can pay their bills in cash at kiosks through an agreement with Ready Credit Corp. and CheckFreePay. Ready Credit sells prepaid MasterCards at its kiosks and decided to offer bill-pay services, according to Tim J. Walsh, Ready Credit president/CEO (ATM and Debit News June 5). Many Ready Credit clients don’t have bank accounts and prefer to use cash, he told the newspaper. Users of the kiosks will pay $1.50 for two-day bill processing and $2.50 for next-day processing of their payments. Ready Credit and CheckFree share the revenue fees, said Paul Harrison, CheckFreePay general manager. Ready Credit has kiosks in 55 stores in Wisconsin, Texas, Florida, Minnesota, Massachusetts and Georgia. Chicago may have kiosks next month as well, Walsh told the newsletter. Kiosks are available in grocery stores, convenience stores and Dollar Tree stores. CheckFree is a subsidiary of Fiserv, which is located in Brookfield, Wis.
