The Prague 2 municipality recently introduced an electronic payment gateway, allowing citizens to pay most local fees, fines, and administrative charges through mobile phones or computers.
The payment gateway currently enables citizens to pay local fees for dogs, the use of public spaces stays and entrance fees, fines, and cost reimbursements for administrative proceedings, administrative charges, and parking permits for paid parking zones. The expansion of online services is part of the municipality’s efforts to support the digitization of public administration and services.
The introduction of the electronic payment gateway is expected to bring significant benefits to citizens and public officials. Citizens will no longer have to wait in lines to pay fees for their dogs or waste at the office or post office. Instead, they can conveniently pay online and receive an instant payment confirmation.
Additionally, the payment gateway will simplify and speed up the payment process, enabling officials to record payments easily and avoid errors.
The payment gateway can be accessed directly from the Prague 2 municipality’s website, and payments can be made using credit cards, transfers, e-wallets, or SMS payments. The payment process is simple, requiring citizens to enter a variable symbol necessary for payment and confirm the transaction.
After payment, citizens can verify the payment history and make any necessary adjustments to the payment amount. Introducing the electronic payment gateway is a positive step towards improving public services and modernizing the municipality’s operations.
