Because Koodo needs to be able to verify your identity and run a credit check.

You can Choose prepaid if you don't want to go through all that however.

so is the only way to get one without the credit check is to go in store?

Okay so since you're already a customer, you will need the credit card online to verify your shipping address, not for a credit check. If you don't have a credit card, you'd need to go to a kiosk or retail partner to get the device. Bring ID

Yeah I think you can only pay your bill with that.
