Jab tak Amazon RuPay Offer (RuPay Debit Card) pe charge nahi hai tab tak koi issue nayi hai!

For those, who are using Credit Cards directly on Bill Payments Kindly Buy Gift Vouchers which will fetch 5% CASHBACK via HDFC Millenia or SBI Cashback Card and then pay via Amazon Pay Wallet!

Thanks for the confirmation. I was a bit worried not seeing the extra charges. I'll pay my bills in a couple of days then.

It was not freebie.

We are paying what our amount is. 

Now we need to pay more than bill amount.

It's money extortion

We will also start to avoid these Charging platforms and start to pay direct on the service company Site. So no need to worry.

But don't encourage these platforms by paying the convenience fees

Ever tried paying bill directly on utility service providers' websites (especially electricity)? Many of them charge convenience fee too especially when using cc.

1%+GST is way too much. A flat rate of 2-5 should have been good, like paytm and phonepe. This is the beginning of expensive bill payments through online mode altogether. Credit card companies have also started adding charges additionally on bill payments. The online payment future doesn't seem nice for end consumers.

From cashbacks to overpayment..

Still online payments better than offline payments....
