Pay Boxes In Georgia

Paying bills, taxes . . . anything is easy in Georgia.

They are called pay boxes, and that’s exactly what they are. Almost anywhere there’s a store, street corner, or building in Georgia there are these electronic terminals through which you can pay for about anything: your phone plan, your utilities bills, gambling wagers, your rent, and even taxes. Seemingly, all of the billing systems in Georgia are streamlined and can be accessed via these machines.

While a direct withdraw plan is probably a more convenient way to pay bills, these pay boxes make amends for the cash as well as the electronic economy. You can shove bills and coins into the things — something which is going out of style in other parts of Europe.

Many countries of the world are taking new technologies and are using them in a way to make life easier for people. Whereas in the USA people are buried in paper bills from a zillion different sources that they need to keep straight, people in Georgia just walk down the street to the nearest pay box and pay for everything in a single go.

    How would I pay an individual ( my landlord) or a shop for something I order?
