Unfortunately there are no points of sale in Ottawa/Gatineau area yet. So you will have to order the SIM card online: https://fizz.ca/en/sim-card

You can use a Visa or MasterCard credit card to pay for your Fizz plans.

  • including Visa or MasterCard prepaid cards which accept recurring payments
  • including also Debit MasterCard or Visa Debit card
  • .
    As mentioned, there are some prepaid cards (like Koho) that can be used. Avoid the Vanilla prepaid card as it is not accepted by Fizz.

    This is a good time to join Fizz as they are giving $40 bonus credit to new customers (until November 18th).

    You can choose mine or use the code of someone who has helped you. =)
    To be transparent, both parties will receive the bonus credit once you have paid your second bill.

Salma,
To get a Fizz sim card , you must order a sim card on the website of Fizz.
And dont forget that if you want to subscribe to a Fizz mobile plan, you need to stay in the green subscription zone of Fizz.
