UFA, 26 August 2015. /Bashinform News Agency, Rozaliya Valeeva/. The Yandex service has analyzed payments of Ufa residents for utility services (water, electricity, gas). Over the year the average payout has increased from 2493 to 2760 rubles – Ufa townspeople pay for utility services on average more than the residents of other million cities. The average payment across Russia is 2,200 rubles, and the least payment for housing services among major cities is in Chelyabinsk — an average of 826 rubles, the press service of the Yandex company informs.

Among all ways to pay for utility services through Yandex.Money the most popular are credit cards — almost half of payers use them. About one third of people pay through electronic wallets. 14% of users choose to pay through an e-wallet connected to a credit card — it is convenient: in the time of payment it is not necessary to enter card details. Payments via mobile phones are gaining popularity — now 8% of users pay for utility services in such a way.
