Making waves online with payments

By Kevin Kelly

The online world is full of great innovations that are helping to speed up productivity in a variety of ways. Our smartphones are becoming more and more versatile, becoming more akin to cameras and mobile banking devices than a portable calling machine.

With the continued development of technology and a heavier reliance on the internet for day-to-day tasks, the Bunbury City Council's move to have rates notices received via email is a step in the right direction.

Nobody likes coming home from a long day at work only to find five envelopes sticking out of their letterbox. The council has decided to cut the paper trail significantly and send rates notices online, so they're received instantly.

Is this switch to focus on technology encouragement to make the move into some real estate in Bunbury?

A step toward a greener future

Changing over from snail mail to the wide world of the internet and email might seem like a small step, but it shows the way the council is moving, and it's definitely in the right direction.

While those residents who don't apply for paperless notices will still receive their rates in mid-August via their letterbox, people who are on the fence because of security issues shouldn't worry. The My Post Digital Mailbox is safe and secure, so it can only be accessed by the account holder and has been set up by Australia Post to ensure the delivery works perfectly every time.

Once received, the annual rates can still be paid in person, over the phone, by credit card and even online banking, but for those who don't want their rates sitting outside until they return home, this service is a great solution.

The city council is working hard to ensure Bunbury residents are always at the forefront of technology. Make the move today and stay ahead of the curve with the Ray White Bunbury team.
