Walmart now taking bill payments for PG&E, SDG&E, SoCalGas
Customers can now visit a Walmart store to pay a bill from Pacific Gas & Electric Co., San Diego Gas & Electric and Southern California Gas Co.
Brookfield, Wis., November 1, 2011 — Walmart is expanding its offer of the CheckFreePay walk-in bill payment service from Fiserv, Inc. to become an authorized walk-in bill payment center for multiple California utilities.
Walmart is an authorized payment center for PG&E, SDG&E and SoCalGas meaning customers can pay bills from these companies without incurring a convenience fee.
To pay a bill, customers should bring their bill stub to a participating Walmart MoneyCenter or customer service desk. Payments can be made using cash or a PIN-based debit card. Payments are processed through the CheckFreePay bill payment service from Fiserv offered by Walmart, and are sent electronically to the utility on the same business day.
Walmart already offers customers the ability to pay more than 2,500 bills using CheckFreePay. In most cases, customers can choose from either next business day or three business day delivery options.
The PG&E service territory represents Northern California. It extends from Eureka in the North to Bakersfield in the South and from the Pacific Ocean to the Sierra Nevada. SDG&E services customers in San Diego and southern Orange counties. The service territory for SoCalGas encompasses Central and Southern California, from Visalia to the Mexican border.
