Electronic Commerce (eCommerce)

Treasury eCommerce Collections

The U.S. Treasury's Bureau of the Fiscal Service (Fiscal Service) provides the public with a suite of cutting-edge electronic payment options that align with online payment standards moving the federal government closer to achieving an all-electronic Treasury.

Fiscal Service is devoted to offering a full suite of eCommerce options to U.S. government agencies as we increasingly partner with those agencies to convert their paper collections to electronic methods of payment.

We're working with organizations that share our goal of offering citizens electronic options for making payments to the federal government.

We'll continue to promote these key customer benefits:

Convenient - Make payments anytime 24/7, from anywhere, using your computer, smartphone or tablet.

Simple -  Paying online is easy, fast and free.  Pay directly from your checking or savings account, by credit or debit card, or by PayPal or Amazon Pay accounts.

Secure –  We adhere to the industry’s most stringent security standards to protect your financial data and privacy.

The eCommerce initiative is comprised of 3 pillars:

  • Digital Wallets
  • The Mobile Program
  • Online Bill Payment

Digital Wallets

Digital Wallets are for consumers who don't want to use a credit card or provide their bank account information to merchants online.

Current Digital Wallets available through Pay.gov are PayPal and Amazon Pay; they are convenient, simple and secure ways for customers to make payments or purchase goods and services using their stored account balances, bank accounts, credit cards, or pre-paid cards.

  • PayPal allows users to connect with just a username and password. Users have access to their stored account balances, bank accounts, credit cards, and even pre-paid cards.
  • Amazon Pay enables customers to make payments or purchase goods and services from US based websites using the payment methods stored within an Amazon.com account.

The Mobile Program

The Mobile Program is for agencies and customers that would like to complete transactions using their mobile devices.

Our Mobile Program consists of two types of mobile applications.

  • The Agency App (FedRevCollect) allows government agents  to accept credit/debit cards, Near Field Communications (NFC) enabled transactions as well as personal checks using a government issued mobile device.
  • The Public App allows agencies to quickly and easily create their own agency-branded mobile application for customers to download and use to complete payments on their own personal devices. You can even buy Digital Tickets to “skip the line” at select agencies.

Online Bill Payment

Online Bill Payment is a secure, convenient way for consumers to pay federal government bills through their banks’ websites.

  • The Credit Gateway program area assists agencies with creating biller profiles on the Online Bill Payment network.
  •  Consumers can include agencies in their list of valid billers on their banks’ bill payment websites.
  • Consumers can pay these bills online from their bank account in the same way they pay other bills online.
