Many US households struggle to stay on top of bills, and the pandemic has made that even more challenging. doxo’s core value has proven to be very timely — the app simplifies the task of staying on top of bills and helps improve financial health.

Currently, doxo serves over four million paying users who can make payments to over 75,000 local and national businesses, making the company the largest bill pay directory in the country.
doxo also expanded its doxoINSIGHTS program, which provides a transparent look into household financial health and spending activity, breaking down what Americans pay for their monthly bills across over 90% of zip codes and 45 service categories. The reports, which found that the average U.S. household spends $22,668 per year on bills, break out the household spending market size for each bill category, percentage of households that pay each bill, and average monthly and annual bill pay costs by state. The company also examined how Americans used their $1400 stimulus check, finding that 62% of that money was paid towards household bills.
