Yahoo Bill Pay launched in September 1999 and was promoted as giving Yahoo users the ability “to securely pay bills from any computer connected to the Internet”.
The service is to be shut in two stages. September 14 will be the last day bills can be paid using the service. Previous transactions will remain available for viewing until October 31, when the service will be completely shut down.
The closure of Yahoo Bill Pay is the first announced closure of a service by Yahoo since May, when Yahoo announced the closure of Webjay, Yahoo Photos and Yahoo Auctions. Yahoo Bill Pay joins the TechCrunch Deadpool.
