With Cov-19 situation, there is much lesser pollution. Why not continue to amplify the healing by saving more paper as well? Easiest thing we could do now is switching to E-billing for utilities bills.

Less paper, save environment.

a) TNB Bills with E-Wallets -https://ringgitplus.com/en/blog/e-wallet/ho...go-ewallet.htmll[

b) Syabas E-Billing - https://www.airselangor.com/announcement/le...to-e-bill-today

c) IWK E- Billing - https://www.iwk.com.my/customer/ebill

My thought.

People don't have to register to so many apps or website just to get a bill. Once registered, just send it to the registered email address.

All bills should have a QR code. So consumer just have to scan and pay by ewallet.

Some doing that now but not all.

you are right....when e-wallet started i was also quite resistant to it...but now i'm using T&G ewallet.
but my parents switch all to e-billing already. would be better if can auto-debit like insurance or mobile. less one thing to worry, and those merchants confirm get payment

All those utility bills and telco bills. You can use auto-debit for all of them.

I auto-debit all those bill to one particular card. And only have to check that card's statement once a month and all in one glance.

There are more fraud with "e-ed" transactions than solid cash transactions.
All to one card. Check once a month the statement for any suspicious transaction. Payment to whichever utility etc are all traceable which makes it more secure.

Same could be said of cash. You have to go to the office to pay and who knows, you might drop the cash or someone could snatch it.

This has to do with the educational levels, in the old days people are uneducated, cannot speak English/National Language so unable to adapt. Nowadays, the middle age can speak more English than those 10 or 20 years earlier.

In China, even the beggar uses ewallet. And apps comes several languages. So it's a matter whether you wanted to or not

That is a very good idea actually. I feel that other utilities companies can print out the QR codes and paste it in each household? Scan and pay.

I already switched to e-billing long before general election 2018.

For paper based billing, sometimes, it takes even a few weeks for us to receive the bill after the bill was released. When we receive the bill, the due date is just around the corner, or worse, the due date already passed.

Subscription to e-billing solved the above problem, and I can pay my bills on time.

To pay the bills, sometimes I use JomPAY or use FPX on biller website, more convenient than using e-wallet, as I no need to top up my e-wallet.

If you pay the bills by using credit/debit card or FPX on biller website, you directly pay to the biller by using biller's own system. You may be issued an official receipt by biller on the web page or by email.

At least we progressed from snail mail to email and SMS. Even SMS feels outdated to younger people.

To think of official matters like MKN or KKM to SMS you during PKP.

Of email and snail mail, yet to see utility bill sent through Facebook or WhatsApp.

You are one in the million sir to adapt to technologies. Laziness is a big factor in my opinion. And Malaysians dont like to set automated payment because they usually think its a scam.. But yea.. More effort needs to be done

Even with manual payments, it takes just a few minutes to pay all bills online at once, more convenient and more time saving than going to payment counter.

So, I don't feel laziness as a big factor. Some people just choose to owe money, and use many excuses.

But, I don't deny that, there exist some people who truly worry about the security of online payment, and some people just don't know how to use technology. More need to be done to solve these.

I forgot to mention in my previous post, about the network coverage issue and internet speed issue.

Even if a person willing to pay their bills on time, know how to make online payment and willing to pay online, but he/she live at area where network coverage is poor, internet connection is poor, he not even can receive electronic bill, nor make payment online.

These issues must be solved first.
