Verizon Wireless Confirms $2 Fee for Making One-Time Payments
Replying to: Really more of a credit card fee... by Rich Brome

You can pay your bill online without setting up auto-pay and without incurring this fee.
Just use your bank's online bill payment service. That's ACH and therefore this fee doesn't apply. You can do it manually each month even if you use paper billing. (That's how I pay most of my bills.)
This fee is only if you're using a credit card. Credit cards do come with fees, paid by the merchant. 2 percent is typical for any kind of rewards card. So on a $100 phone bill, that's $2. Verizon is simply passing that on to you.
I do think it's a stupid move on Verizon's part, but that's what's going on.
Thanks for that, Rich--I like paying my bills online via one time payments. This fee is ludicrous.
