FALMOUTH, Mass. – Property owners in Falmouth can now pay water bills online as the town continues to enhance its electronic payment offerings through Invoice Cloud, a simple, secure e-billing software system.
The Town of Falmouth previously provided the option of electronic payments for real estate, personal property and vehicle excise tax bills, before making the system available to its 21,000 water customers for the latest semiannual bills due on Dec. 18. The town expects to expand the offering to boat excise taxes and moorings next year.
“Switching to online payments with Invoice Cloud has made it easier for our residents and other property owners to receive and review their bills, schedule payments and avoid late fees – all while reducing paper use and helping the environment,” said Town Collector/Treasurer Patricia O’Connell. “We are always working to make the billing process as convenient as possible for our residents, and we encourage them to pay online.”
With the Invoice Cloud system, residents can log in and make electronic payments on a computer or a smartphone, including by text message. The traditional option of mailing a check or paying a bill in person at Town Hall remains available.
“Online bill payers like the overall convenience, including payment scheduling flexibility and autopay, as well as reducing paper waste and cutting clutter from household files,” said Bob Lapides, president of Invoice Cloud. “Paying by text is one of the fastest growing types of electronic payment as consumers grow more comfortable with receiving bill notifications and making payments at the push of a button on their phone.”
