Some are auto pay. A couple times a month we will use a library if something more secure cannot be found. Never use a fast food or similar place.

Everyone wants auto pay or draft. We don't do that. We pay online and schedule payments when to come out ahead of time, many times.
So far, we have been where we have wifi. Using the smart devices or phones anywhere you have a connection, connecting the lap top is better than trying to use that teeny pad.

I see everything covered here EXCEPT how the money got into your account to cover the payments----for those of us without unlimited money in the bank and no direct deposit.

We have direct deposit for our SSI and some annuity payments, but we also receive several royalty and other annuity payments by check. Our credit union and our bank both have a photo deposit feature that lets us make deposits online anywhere we have Internet service.

SS and pension are direct deposits to our checking account. If I need to move money from my investment account I do that online using MY hotspot and MY computer with two factor authentication. Normally before we leave I make sure there will be enough in checking to cover all expense and online payments.

I have the latest I phone and it has all the options to do this stuff. The problem is I need to teach myself how to use it. Renters, send checks and money orders or cash, oil & gas royalties come in checks, SS is direct deposit. Then as it stands now I have to have the bills (mail) in order to pay them. Somehow years ago I worked all over the world and got them paid. Now I am limiting my trips to 15 days or less just for this problem.

you should be able to have the oil/gas royalties direct deposit. That's what are done with ours.

Lots of people send cash. I have sold people stuff in Europe and they sent CASH. We have a underground economy in our country that is fueled by cash.
