“For most recurring utility bills, Tez will fetch any new bill and send you a timely notification when it arrives. Checking whether you’ve paid a bill in the app is as simple as tapping the biller’s name on your Tez home screen. There, you’ll be able to view all past payments grouped by biller, as well as manage bills from multiple accounts.”
