PayTrust is a bill payment service developed and managed by the Intuit company that allows its users to easily track and make payments on all of their bills that are handled through the single source. This is beneficial over the normal practice of paying each bill individually which generally means having to go through numerous log ins across many web sites every month in keeping up with all of one’s bills. Similarly, this will also centralize and unify the way you are notified that all of your bills get handled, which will mean never missing out on or forgetting to make a payment simply because that company’s notification methods are not adequate.

Like any other service available anywhere else, you will have to actually sign up for PayTrust to log in to and use it. To register for access to PayTrust, you need to head over to the PayTrust Enrollment page. To complete the registration, you will need to both verify that you are okay with the $9.95 monthly fee, which comes with 25 transactions each month, and fill out all of the required fields in the form itself. These fields ask for a substantial amount of information, so plan on taking a couple minutes to fill it out to completion. You will also be asked to enter your bank account information, which will be used to pay your bills once you have everything set up.

Important Notes About PayTrust
There are a few important things that you should know before deciding to use PayTrust as your bill management service. The first, and possibly most notable, is that your billing address will be changed from wherever you currently have your bills sent to. It will be changed to reflect a personal PO Box that has been set up for your account in South Carolina, which will mean you will have to remember it for future interactions with your utilities, cable providers, credit card holders or more.
Second, and what makes us like PayTrust so much, is that you can actually pay anyone in the United States who has an address. This means you can use the system to make regular payments to freelance employees, babysitters, yard workers and anyone else you might have to pay occasionally.
