SGWASA uses a third-party vendor to provide the online bill pay service to customers. The third-party vendor charges a 3.5% convenience fee for each bill pay transaction. SGWASA does not determine the percentage-based convenience fee and does not receive any portion of the fee. For several years now, SGWASA has paid the convenience fees for all customers who use the optional online bill payment feature.
Following a review earlier this year of the costs associated to the on-line bill pay program, SGWASA recognized that customers who use the online bill payment program should pay the convenience fee for the service, versus all utility customers paying for it (via their utility rates) whether they use the online bill payment program or not.
