Check, formerly PageOnce, is adding an expedited payment service to its mobile app.

The service is designed to help consumers avoid late fees for bill payments. The Palo, Alto, Calif.-based company now allows users make same-day payments through its mobile app.

Check will charge $14.99 per expedited payment, which it says compares favorably to typical credit card late fees of $20 to $50.

"This new payment option creates substantial consumer savings and fits well with our strategy of providing the ability to pay anyone, anywhere and with any type of payment method," says Guy Goldstein, CEO of Check, in a June 20 press release. "Our goal is to provide customers with cost-efficient and convenient choices. Convenience is all about speeding up a bill payment on your mobile device in a matter of seconds."

The new option is available on Check's Bills & Money app, which it offers as a free download on the iTunes App Store and Google Play.

Check began adding payment capabilities to its personal finance management app in 2011.  The company, which has more than 8 million users, changed its name to Check last month to reflect its growing emphasis on payments.
