The Charge is Valid!

Credit card companies and banks charge companies a small fee to process credit card payments. This is how a bank stays in business (you think they stay in business by holding your $500 check and then giving your $500 back at the end of the week...there's no income there at all!)

Verizon is saying "enough is enough" to this charge as they're losing capital and need to make up for it. So, they pass the charge onto customers.

My local breadstore does the same thing if you pay with a debit card. They charge a debit fee.

I'll call it a "lazy/convienence fee", essentially that's what it is. You can still pay by cash at a store, by check at a store, or by check by mail...however if you want the LAZY/convient way of going through...

Payment Cost through
Credit Card $2.05
ATM/Debit $0.84
Electronic Check $0.03

Thats what it costs us to take a payment ONLINE, its much more through a rep or sivr.

Except for one thing, Whats the difference if I pay by check on their website or my banks, not even using a credit card.

You may call it a lazy/convince fee, I call you a fanboi. And can pay within the same 3 mins on their site.
