This service allows payment of the bills issued by leading Multi-Utility Companies via the various channels linked to the gateway: banks, tobacconists and chain retailers.
Links with the Utility Companies can be established in various ways, depending on the technologies available to them:
- Data Capture - data verification and batch notification to the Utility during nightly processing;
- Mirrored Database - repository updated by the Utility, which sends batch flows;
- On-line Real-time - via interaction with the Utility's authorisation platform developed on an ad hoc basis (typically using WS XML).
