WITH the use of a Visa credit card, one can soon enjoy the convenience of paying his or her water bill anywhere in the world.
The Metropolitan Cebu Water District (MCWD) and the Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) entered into a memorandum of agreement (MOA) to allow water bills to be paid using a Visa credit card starting next year.
Using the Internet Payment Gateway (IPG) system, MCWD customers just need to log on to MCWD’s website www.mcwd.gov.ph and key in their account details.
At the MCWD main office on Magallanes St., Cebu City, customers can also pay with their Visa credit cards, saving them from the hassle of carrying cash around. DBP Executive Vice President Anthony Robles said the government bank’s priorities for digital infrastructure are power and water bills payment. Before the end of the year, they will also offer mobile phone payment transactions. Soon, DBP will allow additional payment channels, like automated teller machine (ATM) networks and other credit card companies.
