Scotiabank customers at home or abroad can now pay their phone, light or water bill through its Scotia Online, Scotia Mobile or Telescotia service.
According to a press release, the bank launched its bill payment services for the Guyana Power and Light, Guyana Telephone and Telegraph, Digicel and other service providers.
Scotiabank Country Manager, Amanda St Aubyn said while the service had been launched several months ago, “we wanted to ensure that the process was seamless before we promoted it publicly.”
To use the facility, customers must first sign up for Scotia Online via www.guyana.scotiabank.com. On completion of this process, customers can click on the Bill Payment and Manage Payees tabs to set up their bill payment accounts. Once the set-up is completed, a bill payment can be completed within a few minutes. Customers can then sign up for Scotia Mobile with their internet enabled handset to pay their bills via their mobile phones.
Customers who do not have internet access via a computer or mobile phone can use the Telescotia service to pay their bills. Dial 223-4357 to sign up for Telescotia and follow the prompts to set up bill payment. Customers must have their Scotiacard ready when signing up for Scotia Online and Telescotia.
A confirmation number is given after each bill payment which can be printed and kept as proof of payment.
Payments made after 5pm are sent to the companies the next business day.
