Using a payment app to pay your friends directly or split a restaurant bill has become increasingly popular
BBC News recently posted an article entitled, ‘The rise of the payment app: ‘I hardly use cash any more’ which discusses the decline of cash usage and the advantages of using P2P apps to manage finances.
Advantages of a P2P app
Apps like our very own billbutler household bill management tool allow you to pay someone in seconds, because they are connected to your bank account, credit or debit card. This can come in handy, not only to manage utility bills, but when you want a convenient, cash-free way to pay for coffees, takeaways or anything else you may want to split the bill for.
Mobile Wallet Growth
The BBC article states that the global mobile-wallet market is expected to grow to over $3billion (just under £2.3billion) by 2022, also suggesting that payment apps, along with contactless payment cards and smartphones are rapidly making cash redundant. This remains to be seen but what we can say for sure is that people now expect simple, convenient and quick ways to pay.
Paying Bills the Easy way
We’re delighted that the BBC article mentions billbutler along side more established payment apps as we feel that every UK bill payer and household can save money with our utility bill monitoring system, as well as removing the awkwardness of having to remind flatmates every month to pay the rent.
“Instead of chasing my flatmate when the bills come in I’ll request the money through an app called billbutler,” he says. “Once he’s transferred it to me I’ll then pay the bill straight away.”
The billbutler app is available to download from the Appstore and Google Play Store. Once you have set up your account and added your utility bill information to the easy-to use dashboard you will be able to see all of your bills in one place, view better deals and switch to save you £££s.
Don’t just take our word for it either. A leading UK money saving expert, Emma Drew recently wrote a blog about how users can save up to £300 a year by using the billbutler app.
