Verizon has plans to institute a $2 “convenience fee” for debit and credit transactions associated with paying your bill on January 15, they have confirmed it. It does indeed start on the 15th of next month and will affect those that make “single bill payments” via the phone or online. Big Red wants to be clear that you have a number of options to avoid the fee, one of those being autopay.

      NO more fee's.

      If you simply would raise your service charge, you're free to do so.

      General Public is sick & tired of added fee's.

      Your organisation is known for its lousy service anyway; if you were to add fee's I advice all my staff to change their phone service.

      Happy New Year

      I think its a bloody shame that Verizon is charging this because they are trying to get customers to go for automatic billing,not even being truthful about it,I like Verizon but enough is enough,Verizon is nickel and dimeing us to death for everything,if they want to keep their customers then they will listen to their customers!

      I am tired of these mega companies nickle and dimeing their customers with additional fees to increase their already large profits. Once my contract is up on March 7 I am cancelling my service. Most likely going to T-mobile.

      Ridiculous fee, sounds to me like they are trying to pull an BOA, because they "can".

      A $2 fee to process a bill payment electronically is ridiculous by comparison with the cost of manually processing mailed-in bill payments for which there is no charge. As they say, "competition is a wonderful thing." Thank you Bill Millard for creating this forum.
