Bill paying has come a long way over the last several years, but each pay period requires logging onto multiple websites to pay credit card bills, cable bills, cell phone bills and more. In recent years, services have come about that help you organize all your bills under a single umbrella, with a single login and password. One of those services is doxo, which at its heart is a digital filing cabinet where you can view all of your statements in a single place. It is also teaming up with well-known providers in order to pay your bills through doxoPay. The service is free and you can access your account online or with apps for iOS and Android. For this review, we tested out the iOS version on an iPhone 4s.
When you first install the free app, you need to set up an account, which also costs nothing. You can set up an account within the app or at the doxo website (www.doxo.com). According to Doxo, they cover over 12,000 providers. We were able to add such providers as Chase, ComEd, AT&T wireless, Comcast, American Express, CapitalOne, State Farm, Peoples Gas, Netflix and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois. Hovever, there are only a few “connected” providers that will deliver e-statements to your doxo account and allow you to pay your balance via doxoPay. In order to sign up for this feature, you provide doxo with your account information, and it will notify the provider that you wish to receive e-statements instead of paper.
