ComEd Bill Pay by post
Customers have the option of paying their bills by post. One thing that they need to remember is that it can take a few days for their bill payment to reach the office, then of course to be processed so they should bear this in mind and ensure they get it in the post early to avoid being charged for late payments. Payments should be sent to ComEd, P.O. Box 6111, Carol Stream, IL 60197-6111. Customers should ensure they include the stub they received at the bottom of their bill so that the payment can be added to the account quickly.
Paying directly from your bank
Lots of people now pay their bills automatically from their bank accounts. This option means that they can choose a day after they are paid to ensure they keep up with their payments and do not have to worry about being reminded or putting money aside. Most will choose the same day, or day after they receive their wages to pay so that they know what they have left to last the remainder of the month. Before payments can be made this way an authorization form will have to be completed.
Paying ComEd Bill at a Payment Location
Payment locations can be found all over and make it possible for people to pay their bills in person. You can find your nearest location by using the payment location finder on their website. Customers can then place their payment into a drop box or through certified payment outlets too and receive a receipt for their payment right away. There is a small service fee to pay with this service and if payment is made to a drop box there will be a delay before payment shows on the account. It is important to bear this in mind do that customers do not end up paying late payment fees.
