Airtel Bill Payment Online – Safe and Secure
While it is undoubtedly convenient, online payments pertaining to Airtel bill payments or any other payment are definitely safer and securer than paying by cash and cheque. Cash payments and/or cheque payments were the two of the most preferred methods of paying an entity for a good or service consumed, till about some years back. Cash was universal – had great power and was too influential. Not anymore! Today cash has been replaced by digital payment methods by the masses. Be it old or young, literate or illiterate, rich or poor – people prefer to use online payment methods to pay for their Airtel bill payment rather than go to a physical Airtel payment counter to settle their bills using cash and cheques.
No doubt, convenience is one of the primary reasons behind this growing liking and preference. But the other main reason behind this growing fondness for virtual payment methods is the safety aspect. Carrying cash around in wallets and purses made you vulnerable to thefts – no longer now.
Online Airtel bill payment, done from the Airtel site or App or a third-party merchandiser site like Paytm, MobiKwik or PhonePe can be done using any of the following methods: –
a. Credit cards and debit cards – statistics prove that Visa, MasterCard and AMEX are the most accepted cards worldwide.
b. E-wallets provided by all major third-party resellers.
c. Electronic bank transfer
Till about some years back, the credit card was widely accepted as the most trusted form of online payment methods. Today it is the electronic wallet that is considered to be the safest. Both the modes are safe and protected because neither of them connects directly with your bank account while the debit card and the bank transfer methods use your bank account details directly. Choose the right payment method based on the current trends and expert analysis. It is good to keep yourself updated about the changing scenarios in the online payment industry so that you are never prey to technological hacks.
At your end it is important to take all necessary precautions too to ensure that you are making your Airtel bill payment safely and soundly.
• Use only a trusted and reputed third party reseller App or site like that of Paytm, MobiKwik or PhonePe. The benefit is that such resellers spend considerably to make processes and systems foolproof and safe for their customers.
• Rather than using the browser, it is better to use the App. Whichever ways, it is important to always checkout or logout of the system after you complete the process. Also ensure that you gain access to the App or the site only after entering your valid Username and password. Never save your passwords on an electronic device, even your own mobile.
• Make sure to use robust internet connectivity while making the Airtel bill payments. The advantage of doing so is that the payment will get through seamlessly while on the other hand if you are using a slow or outdated internet connection, the process may get suspended midway.
