I want to pay my friends bill this month. She's in dire straights.
I've tried the Future Shop...can't pay there.
I've tried Telus.....can't pay there!!
I tried London Drugs......can't pay there!!!
Tried the Kiosk.......can't pay cash there!!!!

What's with this?? You think Koodo would want the money any way they can get it!!!*

Should be able to pay cash anywhere Koodo phones are sold.. Want some money Koodo???

I have to pay on-line or by credit card....should be able to pay cash!!

Koodo closed on Sunday! Does that mean you won't deactivate her phone on Sunday??? mmmmm I bet it doesn't!!*

I want to pay this bill!!! I have credit card with me now but can't find a spot to pay someone else's bill..

Where and how can I do this?????

You're a good friend to help someone through a crunch. You have to admit, though, that what you are doing is atypical -- not unheard of, but still not typical. It is not usual for people to go around paying other people's bills.

Nonetheless, if you want to pay cash, you can pay:
- At any financial institution
- At any Western Union

Just a thought, Tellulah, you could give your friend the cash and then they can pay their bill the usual way :) Might be easier all around :) You must be a good friend indeed!

You can pay his bill online. sk him to log into his account and make one time credit card payment. Simple as that.

The name and billing address need to match what's on your account in order to work. I'm thinking your problem is that the full name on the card doesn't match what's on file.

Chad I appreciate the quick comment. I understand the need for security but when the last name is the same as well as the billing address surely common sense would prevail.

The system responsible for rejecting the payment based on an address mismatch is and automated program running on a computer. expecting it to display "common sense" is kind of a stretch. An extra comma or additional whitespace in the address is enough to cause automatic verification to fail. It can be overridden, but that requires submitting the credit card information to Koodo's security team so it can be registered on the account.

Not to flog a dead horse but I did submit the card through to the Koodo team. I then received verification a day later that it was received. When I called today I spoke to two different CSRs. Both states there could inky be one credit card assigned.

You could also take a printed version of their bill and go pay cash at any bank.
