Columbia Gas announces more locations to pay your natural gas bill

Monday, March 26, 2012
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Now there are lots more places for Columbia Gas of Ohio customers to pay their bill. The company today announced that it has expanded its network of authorized payment locations to include most Walmarts, as well as more local grocers, pharmacies, and other retail and service stores. A current, complete list of payment locations is available on the company’s Web site at Payment Locations.

In addition to several convenient ways to pay online or by phone, some customers prefer to pay in person while they’re running errands or to make a last-minute payment to avoid service disconnection.

Columbia Gas advises customers that it’s important to use only payment agents that the company has authorized to accept payments on its behalf. Although many businesses accept payments as a convenience to their customers, Columbia cannot guarantee that payments made at an unauthorized location will be processed on time, especially if disconnection is pending.

Columbia Gas also reminds customers to take their bill with them when they make a payment, and to promptly report their payment receipt number to the company either online at: Columbia GasOhio.com or by phone at 1-800-344-4077.

Customers may also choose to pay their bill online by electronic check at no charge at the company’s Web site, or to pay using their credit or debit card online or by phone. More information is available on the company’s Web site.
