The popular series of “talk to Chuck” ads now have more fodder for conversation – mobile bill payments.

Rolling out a slate of new on-the-go banking solutions for investors, Charles Schwab today announced the release of Schwab Bank Bill Pay for iPad, iPhone and Android.

When it comes to helping driving mobile payment adoption, the Charles Schwab Corporation is no small player in the financial world. The company has more than 300 offices and 8.6 million client brokerage accounts, 1.52 million corporate retirement plan participants, 801,000 banking accounts, and $1.83 trillion in client assets.

According to details published this morning, the new Bill Pay feature allows Schwab Bank clients to make, edit, monitor and cancel payments from their mobile and iPad devices. The remote bill pay option also enables Schwab Bank clients to add and edit new payees and billers through the Schwab mobile apps.

“We heard loud and clear from our clients that having access to bill pay on the go is important to them, so we prioritized making this capability available,” said Diane Russell, Charles Schwab senior vice president of platform and product management. “More than half a million Schwab Bank clients are currently enrolled in Schwab Bank Bill Pay through Schwab.com, and the ability to now use Schwab Bank Bill Pay on their mobile apps will significantly increase the convenience for clients.”
