Answered question

Payment failed but my credit card is working and was successfully added. What's wrong?

I've been trying to make a payment for 2 days and I keep receiving emails from Fizz saying my payments did not go through.

I've spoken with customer support at least 3 times and they even escalated the ticket to their 'technical team' without resolution.

My old credit card expires in February so I successfully added the new card (same number different expire date and cvv) as a new payment method to my account.

I made purchases with my new credit card so I know it works, I called my bank and they told me everything was fine on their side.

What's wrong Fizz? Please fix this issue.

Hi Yu-Yuen

Did you associated your new credit card with your plan?

This is the full procedure

If you need to add a new credit card
1- In your Fizz account, go to My Profile
2- Click on Payment methods.
3- Click on Add a new payment method to add your new payment method.
4- Now make your way to My plans.
5- For each of your plans, click on Manage plan/Payment method, and associate your new payment method.
6- Then, select the payment method you no longer want to us, and click on Delete.

If you associate a new credit card with your plans, you can also force the payment
My Plans → Manage Plan → Payment method → Make my monthly payment. Once payment has been made, your service will be restored within 2 hours.

If you old card is still valid you can use it to make this month paiement

I associated the payment method to the plan, made is default and pressed make payment button.

I also tried re-adding my card several times and retrying the payments without success.

My internet service got suspended because of the failed payments so this is urgent.

Ok, it is a Canadian credit card right?
It’s weird that it is not working. Can you try a debit card, just this time around to sort everything out later on?

It's a Canadian Credit Card. I don't think I can use my Debit Card to make the payment though.

Take a look at:
https://community.fizz.ca/questions/2504079-added-credit-...

Looks like other people also had the same problem when their credit card expires and they use a new credit card with the SAME number but DIFFERENT expire date and cvv.

The issue is with Fizz.

Oh, I didn’t think that Canadian Banks still issue debit only card. I thought all of them are Visa and MasterCard debits.

Hi Yu-Yueh

Sorry you having difficulty with Fizz to make a payment.

If your old card is still good until end of February, can you try making a payment with the old card? Or perhaps you can try with a different card while Fizz investigates the issue.

At least you will be able to have your service restored.

I had the same issue when my credit card expired and got the new one. I added a new credit card in my account with the same number but different expiration date and cancelled the old one. In this way the payment went through. Hope this helps!
