After you open an account in an Ecuadorian bank, you don't have to stand in line to pay your bills anymore. We use Banco Pichincha (BP). You can set up payments on the internet, similar to what they have in U.S. based banks.
The next time you sign in to your bank account and decide to pay your electrical bill, you click the option "Pagos", "Pagar facturas inscritas" and you will see either "no disponible" or an amount in Valor section. "No disponible" means that your bill is not yet ready for you to pay.
When you see an amount in the "valor" column, you can:
1) Check your bill using the "Consultar" button
2) Pay it using the "Pagar" button.
3) If you have moved from one place to another you can delete this bill using the "Borrar" button and enter a new one.
With this setup, your bills are not paid automatically. In order to pay a bill, you will still need to sign on and click the option "Pagos", "Pagar facturas inscritas" and "Pagar" button. BP provides an "E-key" card with a code that you will be required to use to complete all of your online transactions.
