Verizon Communications (Verizon.com) is an American broadband and telecommunications company, which is branded as Verizon. It was named so in 2000 when Bell Atlantic merged with GTE. Its operations are largely categorized into three business units.
- Residential and small business services
- Enterprise services
Verizon now enjoys the reputation of the leading telecommunications provider in all the 6 geographical locations of USA. Since its inception in 2000, its customer base grew from a mere 25 million to 94 million in 2010.
The service provider has been keen on providing digital payment options to its customers. It not only makes the payment process easier for the company, it also leverages the user experience of the service. You can pay bill online by accessing Verizon.com.
Type Verizon.com/payonline in your browser. You can also make your way through Verizon.com, but it will take you clicks and time to reach the same place. Anyhow, you will see a website like the one in the picture.
As you can see, there are two methods available for paying bill online. You can either choose to pay instantly without registering or you can register with Verizon to make the payment.
Paying without Registration
As you can see there are two text boxes if you wish to pay instantly. You can pay for Verizon Telephone Number or for other Verizon service if you don’t have a Verizon Telephone number. However, to make a payment in both the cases, you need your Verizon account number. When you have entered the details, click on the red button titled “Pay Bill.”
If you are reserved about online payment, you can choose to click on Click here to view payment locations. By entering your address on, city, zip code and the distance range, you can find the apt payment location for you.
Payment with Registration
Click on the red button titled “Register” to initiate registration. The new page will ask you choose the Verizon Service for which you want to register – wireless or residential. When you continue you will see a new webpage like the one below.
The next step is to fill the registration form which includes filling your Verizon Telephone Number and any one field from Last Bill Amount, Last Payment Amount and Verizon Account Number. You can do without a Verizon Home Number, if a Verizon Account Number and ZIP code. Once you are registered, you can pay your bill online and enjoy other services that come with it. Just sign in and enjoy.
If you see clearly at the top you will find the following words written.
“Please note that payments made without signing in will be processed by a vendor who will charge a $3.50 service fee per payment. Avoid this fee by signing in or registering for My Verizon.”
So, to avoid service fee of $3.50, I recommend registering if you envisage frequent online payment for a longer period of time.
