Digital Dutch bill paying in 2006...

Trouw reports that four large banks (Rabo, ABN AMRo, ING and Postbank) have chosen to introduce the digital bill payments. Currently, most Dutch bills are paid by so-called: acceptgiro. Payment of these bills requires people to do a 16-digit data-entry per payment.

TPG Post, which set up the digital bil payment via Privver, is the partner in this set-up. The new functionality will mean that people will find their bills electronically prepared in their home-banking internet-application. So payment will then be quite easy.
