Top up like normal and enter your credit information in.

Here are the credit cards allowed by Koodo

If you run into troubles, you may have to spend slightly less than the balance of your card. Some years ago, I tried to use Koodo's gift prepaid credit cards to pay on the Koodo website - but it never worked.

It took me several long phone calls, until somebody at a bank told me that every time they authorize a transaction, they first deduct 1 Cent. So if you spend the whole balance, say $100, it comes back with "insufficient funds" - because the current balance is $99.99.

It takes several bank days for those Cents to be returned to your balance. The more often you try to authorize, the lower your balance will creep, Cent by Cent, although you haven't actually spent anything.

This stupid system may have changed, or not.
