set up online banking, I decided to try to pay my bills. I've never paid bills before, but this seemed easy enough.
I logged onto KEB and used the digital certificate that is saved to my USB drive, and clicked 'Pay Bills'
NO. THIS IS NOT THE E-PAYMENT NUMBER. Damn you, internet. This is the account number if you're doing a direct transfer to the Electricity company's bank account.
After a long chat to a nice English speaking guy on the KEB helpline, I was told to give up and pay at a convenience store.
I was feeling a bit cocky so I decided to try to pay my gas bill too. This one is a little more tricky, at first. Because you'll notice that the menu for bill payments does not mention Gas.

Oh no! It's a form with a whole lot of fields and you have no idea what they mean? Fear not. KEB provides a handy diagram.
Fool-proof banking guide: that little card in the plastic wrapper is very important. Open it, and don't lose it, ever. You need the numbers in it if you want to do any kind of transaction on KEB. It is your Safety Card.
