Canada's Scotiabank is providing its online customers with access to epost, an electronic mail and bill presentment and payment service provided by the national postal service.
Epost delivers bills, statements and other documents online for Canada Post.
Scotiabank says its customers can use the free epost service to receive and pay more than 200 distinct bills from 100 different organisations. Customers can register for the service through their Scotiabank OnLine account.
Sharon Hodder, vice president, Internet Services, Scotiabank, says: "Our adoption of the (epost) system means greater flexibility for our customers to receive and pay their bills on line, securely and from the comfort of their computers."
Canada Post acquired the webdox online bill delivery service from e-business firm BCE Emergis for $14.5 million in July 2004. The service was combined with its existing epost system to provide a single and comprehensive electronic document delivery network that connects Canadian businesses and consumers online.
The expanded epost service provides consumers with the tools they need to receive, view, pay, print and store critical mail online - such as bills, statements, tax and payroll documents.
