I think it's just broken again. I had to do it three times (without any other interactions queued) after seasons patch

I try to pay bills via phone as my sim isn't home. What happens is that they take out the phone, scroll the screen and put it back without bills being paid and sometimes they start surf the internet instead. And it doesnt matter if they're T, YA or A, the action wont happen. Sometimes they don't even pay bills when action is demand via mailbox.

@PhantasmKiss The interaction has always been a bit wonky. Did you try multiple times ?

I haven't tried queuing the action multiple times in a row. At first, I thought it had gotten cancelled and had someone try again later when I noticed bills were still due. Then I gave up and started having them pay their bills via the mailbox.

@PhantasmKiss Merged your post with existing thread on it.

Was this on your home lot ?

Yes, it was on my home lot. I noticed it while playing in Del Sol Valley.

For me, my teen was at the Oasis Springs park when I got the bills due notice, so I had him pay by phone. I'm pretty sure it went through, I remember hearing the ka-ching it makes when a bill gets paid. But, when I returned home, the mailbox and PC both were still showing it not paid.
