I NEED to pay my bill TOMORROW! I have tried to do it numerous times but I have an international credit card... and it will take a week for it to be approved by Koodo's system.

Can I use a friend's credit card issued in Canada to pay my bill at a kiosk or self serve???

Thanks!

Well you technically can on self serve. I wouldn't show up at a kiosk with someone else's credit card just to avoid misunderstandings (unless they're with you). But another option is getting a prepaid credit card and paying for your bill with that. Hope that helps :)

Thank you Daniel!

I obviously have my friend's authorization :) so on self serve I just enter the credit card information (my friends) and that's it? Even if the address on the card doesn't match my billing address?

I just saw it isn't possible to do it on Self Serve, the address on the card has to match the billing address :(
What prepaid credit card could I get and where could I get them? And where can I pay with them (self serve, kiosk...)? HELP!!

Ask your friend to pay it via online banking

Thank you Dennis, I think the prepaid cards are easier. Do you know any I can use? And where to get them?

Koodo accepts any prepaid credit cards that I am aware of.

You can usually get them at banks and at some gas stations

The reason that your friends credit card did not work is because their billing information is different than yours - we will compare the information (between credit card and your bill) so that there is nothing fraudulent going on.

It sounds odd, in your case you have permission from your friend, but it is easier and better for all concerned for this rule. Just think I "borrowed" somebody's credit card, and I go into a kiosk to get back at my ex-girlfriend and pay her bill with a stolen credit card - the police become involved, and my ex ends up in jail because the kiosk cannot remember who paid the bill (since they are usually very busy).

Obviously this sounds off the wall, but it is not that far off with people that steal and sell credit cards.
