    Upon registration into the service it'll ask the user for their name, address, partial and full social security number. Users might also have to provide information such as a full credit card number or telephone service account number to get started.

    As of now, Google is partnering with third party vendors that print and mail out bills on behalf of service providers such as insurance companies. Once a user is authenticated, he or she can start receiving bills or other mail in Gmail or the Inbox app.

    The service appears to let people choose to pay a bill right from within Pony Express, using a link with a bank account or a debit card.
