[SPONSORED] Get notified when bills arrive and reminded when bills are due
Thanks to a new innovative app, you'll never miss a paying a bill.
When it comes to late-year to-do lists, bill payments don’t feature prominently, especially when you’re sunbathing on the beach or travelling through a game reserve. Understandably, a large part of the tedium associated with bill payment is a result of the manual nature of the transactions.
But all that is a thing of the past thanks to walletdoc, a mobile & web-based electronic bill payment platform enabling consumers to settle over 400 of South Africa’s largest billers using a debit or credit card as the payment instrument.

Global research has shown that just as consumers increasingly rely on their smartphones and other mobile devices for everything from shopping to socialising, the number of consumers who are mobile bill payers also continues to steadily grow.
It also takes care of account and reference numbers, and it digitally stores payment history, doing away with the need to manually print and file bills together with proof of payment.
Monthly payments to service providers such as utilities, most municipalities, telecommunication companies, schools, charities, insurers (and many more!) are simplified using any Visa, MasterCard, Diners Club Card or American Express card. Paying bills has never felt this good!
And those with concerns about sharing their banking details with another app need not worry.
"Data is fully encrypted and mobile transactions use either fingerprint or PIN authentication, making it safe for users to pay their bills anytime, anywhere and on-the-go," says Leonard Shenker, Joint CEO of walletdoc.
