Making a payment arrangement

Making a payment arrangement

Hey Community,

 

Sometimes, things happen outside of our control. We get it. If you can’t make a payment in time, let us know so we can arrange something.

 

You can make a payment arrangement:

In the My Account app or in your Fido.ca account:

  • If you have a past-due balance on your account, you will see a banner with the message: Need to postpone your payment? Set up a Promise to Pay.
    • Click Set up a Promise to Pay.
    • The Total amount past due is the outstanding amount that you must pay to avoid suspension.
    • You can choose to pay through Credit Card or Online/Telephone Banking.
    • Enter a date on which you will make your payment.
    • Click Set up.
    • If the set up is successful, you will see a confirmation message.
    • The next time you log in to your My Account account, you will see the details of your pending Promise to Pay.
    • Once the payment is made, the message disappears and your account balance will be updated (note there are delays for us to receive payments).

Note:

  • If the payment is not received, collection activity will resume and your account may be at risk of service interruption.
  • Promise to Pay will not prevent late payment charges if paid after the Required Payment Date on your bill.
  • If you are enrolled in automatic payments, this Promise to Pay will not delay your regularly scheduled withdrawal.

 

With the Credit Operations team:

  • Dial *732 from your Fido phone or 1-888-288-2106 from any other phone
  • Contact us to chat with a specialist

 

Once the payment arrangement has been completed, you’ll receive a confirmation text within the next 15 minutes.

 

They’re available (all times are local):

  • Monday to Friday: 8:30am to 9pm
  • Saturday: 9am to 5pm
  • Sunday: 10am to 3pm (only open for suspended accounts)

 

A few things to take note of:

  • If you don’t pay your bill on time, a late payment charge may apply.
  • If your next bill is issued before you’ve completed your end of the arrangement, your past due balance might appear on the new bill.
  • If you miss one of the instalments in your arrangement, your account may be suspended which would incur a suspension fee and collection activity will continue.
  • If your payment arrangement restores the service, a restoral fee may be charged to your next bill. Your service will be immediately restored.
  • If you choose a different method of payment than discussed, your payment could be received at a later date and your arrangement will be considered as Broken. This could negatively impact your payment history, so contact the Credit Operations team to let them know.
