Features & Benefits

Pay.gov's services rest on four cornerstones:

  • Collections--Enabling end-users to authorize electronic transaction funds transfers over the Internet that will be settled through a number of methods (Automated Clearing House (ACH), credit card, or debit card).

  • Forms acceptance and direct billing--Accepting agency forms submitted by end-users over the Internet and presenting agency bills to end-users over the Internet.

  • Reporting--Maintaining, processing, and providing online financial information and database documents for Treasury, agencies, and the public about transactions.

The services of Pay.gov are modular; in other words, each of the services can be invoked separately of the others, sometimes from an agency's own Web site.
