Bummer – I use this service quite often. Paypal is one of the great things that’s come out of the internet. I received this email from them today:
We are writing to let you know that PayPal’s BillPay service will be discontinued in early August, 2005. If you currently use BillPay, you will need to make other arrangements for your online bill payments prior to August to avoid any interruption in service. We regret any inconvenience this may cause, and we will send you periodic reminders as the cancellation date approaches.
None of your pending payments will be affected by this announcement; however, payments should not be scheduled after August 1, 2005 in order to ensure that they are completed.
Please be advised that this will not affect your PayPal account. You will still be able to use PayPal to pay for purchases on eBay and thousands of other merchants on the Web, as well as to send or receive money online.
If you have any questions, please contact PayPal customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org or (402) 938-3631.
