No longer an option to guest-pay internet bill?

I've been paying my mothers internet bill for years online by not logging in but just entering her address and then entering the payment info to pay the bill. Now that screen is no longer there and it requires her to sign in now, why did Xfinity remove the option to just pay the bill? Don't you want my money?

@santsander​ Thank you for sharing the link to quick pay Comcast Business accounts. That is the link customers will want to use to pay their bill only IF they have a Comcast Business account. @user_2ihzyb without logging into our system or speaking with our Xfinity Assistant, you can pay an Xfinity (residential account) bill via one of the following methods: 

  • Say “Pay my bill” into the Xfinity Voice Remote linked to the account to open the account and pay on Xfinity X1.
  • Mail us a check drawn on a valid U.S. bank account or a cashier’s check issued by a valid U.S. bank.
    • Please use the insert included in the Xfinity bill. Never mail cash.
  • Visit an Xfinity Retail Store to pay using one of our Xfinity Self-Service Kiosks, which accept the payment methods listed above, plus cash and traveler’s checks.
  • Visit a Western Union Quick Collect location to pay by money order.

All of these methods do not require that you log into an account to make that payment. Additional information about the different methods for paying your Xfinity bill can be found in this help article

Please keep in mind, any change in the ability to make payments on an account by requiring a log in helps to ensure the continued security of all our customer accounts. 

We hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

She clearly wasn't looking for a business account, so that wasn't a necessary explanation. I'm sure it's widely known that all of the options you gave are available. Why did you not just ANSWER THE QUESTION?? DID xfinity take away the option of paying a REGULAR RESIDENTIAL ACCOUNT without signing in or not??? 
This is the same thing I was trying to find. Most people have major issues with xfinity's SUPER USELESS website, and I personally haven't been able to even GET TO the billing page in the two years I've been a customer. Now you're taking away the option to pay without signing in as well?? 
Time to just give up and go with another provider. I'm not chasing anyone down to pay a bill. Let alone an INTERNET provider that doesn't have a WORKING WEBSITE.

@XfinityJessie​ I've tried paying over the phone but was told by the automated prompt that logging in is required across the board. I'm sure your other suggestions are equally invalid and useless. Why don't you have any better recommendations?

Well for what its worth, I'm now using the Chase app to pay the bill by entering the billing account number and sending the money directly through that. So I guess I'll never have to use the Xfinity site again which is the silver lining to this whole drama.

@user_2ihzyb Have you tried to do it on another device or browser? 

I no longer work for Comcast.

@XfinityJodie​ Yes I tried that, the option was removed from your website for whatever reason.

@XfinityJorge​ No one is answering her question. I had the same problem this weekend... You used to be able to call in on the phone and pay someone else's bill without an issue. Now there's issues you have to log in to their account. Why would you take this option away for people trying to pay a bill? [Edited: "Inflammatory"]

I am having the same problem, I used to pay through the quick bill pay and is gone.  That was the most easy and convenient way of paying the bill.

... why did Xfinity remove the option to just pay the bill? ...

They removed the ability to "pay anyone's bill online without authenticating" because scammers have been abusing it as part of a scheme to swindle customers. Lots of customers, for lots of money.

No doubt if Comcast can find a way to restore the option in a way that prevents it from being misused, they will. Meanwhile, we'll have to make do with the other methods listed in the "Official Solution" post above.

Thank you. I always used the payment without signing in [Edited: "Inflammatory"/"Language"]. I am fed up. Pay way too much for tv and internet with no help from x fin. Time to use another provider.

My issue is very similar. My husband passed away three years ago and I did give them a death certificate three different times once I sent it to them and two times in person and for whatever reason they cannot remove him. He was the primary on this account, so the only option I have had without setting up a new service which, of course there is a large fee to do is to pay this way so now I can’t pay the bill. It is so frustrating and every time I’ve gone down to the local office I get more and more frustrated because they want you to go through this very complicated email process which I don’t have time to do. I have used all types of email services, text and social media with no problem whatsoever. This is the only company that seems to make it super complicated snd I find very frustrating that they just can’t help you either in person or on the phone, as soon as I can get another option, I will definitely be changing my service because of it. It’s just too frustrating and I don’t have time to waste…I don’t understand why these things are not regulated.

Hello @user_44e4c6, and thank you for reaching out about payment options we have for customers. Online is the most convenient, and I'm happy to help in any way I can with the login issue. Our other 3 options would be over the phone with the automated system or phone agent, inside a service center, or you can also mail in a payment if you wish. 

 

Please let me know if you need more information on any of these options, or if you would like assistance with your log in issue.

@XfinityEricB​ Why are you straight up lying to customers? Paying by phone is no longer an option. I've tried both 1-800-XFINITY and 1-800-COMCAST, and neither support payments over the phone. If there's a mysterious 3rd number that actually does work, I'd love to know.

This doesnt work paying someone else's account Because when you call, it picks up the number you are calling from which is my account.

It did the same for me but it allows to find the account. You enter the service address and it finds the account and then you can pay it. I've been doing it for 10 years now. I can't do it no more

I was going to pay my bill but not anymore. If you lose or can’t remember your account information for this business that’s the end right there. Will take you 45 minutes on the phone [Edited: "Inflammatory"] trying to figure out your information. Let people quick pay again [Edited: "Language"]

This [Edited: "Language"]!  Like another widow, I have been trying to update my account.  My husband has been dead for 5 years.  They have never updated it.  It’s heartbreaking to go through this ordeal.  When I discovered the Quick Pay, it was no big deal to pay the bill.  Now have no clue what to do.  I work from home and Xfinity is the only service in town.  Believe me, if there was another one.  I would be with it

Xfinitys team is clearly not listening when multiple people have stated that due to their circumstances they do not have or know their credentials to log in!

The option to pay quick pay without signing in is no longer an option, no matter how many phone numbers or links you send us, so please Xfinity, just tell the truth or [Edited for language].

I have always used this method to pay my bill, and now I cannot get my xfinity ID, regardless what I try. This is absolutely insane! lol

Are they really in this thread giving people the wrong information? Seems like they do not have their internal systems together, I would short their stock ATM if I could!

update before I post this: I was transferred to 7 different chat agents, all giving me the same canned replies, complete bot activity, phone bill pay doesn't work, absolutely useless customer support, they are obviously not listening to their customers AT ALL. 

Agents kept sending me the same payment link, or the same link to a article that is a 404 page now.

Truly sad. I am currently a comcast home customer, and business customer.... NOT FOR LONG.

Good afternoon and happy Friday, @user_ce600f. The process you were using to pay was called Xfinity Lite. We removed that to help protect your account. Scammers are getting more and more advanced, so we have been making some changes to stay ahead of them. Security is of the utmost importance to us! Were you able to get the payment entered through the automated system?

@XfinityRay​ 
not to be rude, but you all could have informed us about this security issue. It's very inconvenient when there is no contact and you all just pull the plug on pay as guest; like an email notifying customers about this issue would have been nice.
