This article will explain each of them in turn and explain when each method is most useful.

From here, just follow the on-screen instructions to pay your bill.
If you are accessing via a mobile device, all you have to do is open the Bank of America Mobile Banking app and tap the “Make a Payment” button. From there, follow the prompts to pay your bill.

Make Your Credit Card Payment by Mail
Maybe you do not have a computer or you prefer not to perform these transactions online. If that sounds like you, paying your credit card bill by mail is a great option for you. If you choose this option, it is imperative that you send your payment early enough that it arrives on time.
To mail your payment, consult the Bank of America website or the latest account statement to find the address you need to send your check to. There are separate addresses for consumer card payments for standard delivery, consumer card payments for overnight delivery, and business account payments.

Pay at Your Local Branch or ATM
This payment splits the difference between paying online and paying by mail. By paying in your local branch or ATM, you get the speed of paying online but without the need to complete this operation online.
To pay your bill at a local branch or ATM, make sure that you bring your payment with you either in the form of a check or cash. If paying at an ATM, insert your credit card and select the “Make a Payment” option from the ATM and follow the prompts on the screen to complete your payment. If you have a business account, payment by this method is not available.
Make sure to bring your credit card to the ATM in order to access your accounts.
Checking Your Credit Card Balance
The quickest way to check your credit card balance is online, either through the Bank of America website or their mobile app. If you log on to their website, you can easily view your current balance and find when your next payment is due.
If you use the Bank of America Mobile Banking app, you can also view your balance from anywhere. Just log into the app and view your balance and due date—you can even view it without signing in by setting up the My Balance feature.
