Some companies allow for online payment or payment through ATMs and self-service kiosks located in communal places such as conjuntos (gated communities), but this requires the money to be withdrawn from a debit card from a bank account in Colombia or a Colombian credit card. Mailing money in any form is unheard of to me in my experience in Colombia; payment in person is the primary method.
For payment of water, gas, and electricity, I pay in cash at banks, Apostar (a national lottery storefront), or Multiservicios (public utility administration office).
For phone/internet/cable, I pay in cash at banks.
For health insurance, I pay for EPS (basic public health insurance) in cash directly at the service provider office. For Medicina Prepagada, I pay with a foreign credit card at the service provider office or associated bank (in this case, Coomeva).
These apply to the city of Pereira; there are likely similar or other options in other cities. In all cases, the authorized payment centers are listed on each bill.
