Banco Nacional charging for utility bill payments

Banco Nacional has quietly instituted a new set of charges for those who would pay utility bills and other debts unrelated to bank activities.

The charge is 300 colons per bill, about 60 U.S. cents.

Unlike some banks in the United states, there still is no charge for conducting bank business at a teller window.

Costa Ricans have paid utility bills at bank windows for generations, but now bank officials want them to do so online or at private firms that collect for the various utilities.
