Amazon India offers an option to pay gas bills online, but it might be too late

  • Amazon India partnered with Bharat Gas to offer gas bill payment feature.
  • Through this partnership, customers also get 50% cashback for all cylinders booked through Amazon Pay until 30th November 2019.
  • Utility bill payments has long been a feature that almost every other digital payment wallet offers.
For long now, paying gas bills and booking a new cylinder had been a hassle for Indian consumers. But now Amazon India and Bharat Gas partnered to help Indians pay their gas bills online.

Through this partnership, customers also get 50% cashback for all cylinders booked through Amazon Pay until 30th November 2019.

“Our mission at Amazon Pay is to reduce friction from day-to-day payments. Often, customers prefer cash payments for their everyday essentials, due to lack of awareness or inconvenient digital payment interface. Our partnership with Bharat Gas will simplify the payment experience and benefit millions of Indian households,” said Mahendra Nerurkar, Director, Amazon Pay.

But Amazon Pay is not the first to offer this service. Utility bill payments has long been a feature that almost every other digital payment wallet has.

Digital payments leader Paytm introduced the feature over a year back and also helps users book HP cylinders. Several other payment platforms followed suit and consumers got the chance to pay via BHIM or through Google Pay, PhonePe etc.
