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 and move 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 require those agencies to convert to electronic methods of payment.

We're working with many other organizations that share our goal of offering citizens online options to make payments to the federal government.

We'll continue to promote these key customer benefits:

  • Convenience - make payments online anytime
  • Simple - Quick to implement
  • Secure - Reduces exposure of sensitive data

The eCommerce initiative includes 3 primary tools:

  • Digital Wallets
  • The Mobile Program
  • On-Line 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.

We offer two types of Digital Wallets through Pay.gov.

  • 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

Fiscal Service has two types of mobile applications.

  • FedRevCollect provides government agencies with a co-branded means of accepting credit/debit card transactions, along with personal checks, from mobile devices.
  • We also offer agencies a public-facing mobile app that provides government agencies with a convenient, simple, and secure way for their customers to pay them using a credit/debit card, digital wallet, or ACH. It's a white-label app offering agencies an easy way to have an agency-branded, publicly-available mobile application presence without developing their own mobile app.

On-Line Bill Payment

On-Line Bill Payment is a convenient way for consumers to pay federal government bills through their banks’ online websites. The Credit Gateway program area helps agencies set up biller profiles on the On-Line Bill Payment network. Consumers can then include agencies in their list of valid billers on their banks’ bill payment websites. They can pay these bills online from their bank account in the same way they pay other bills online.
