How to Make a Payment to Visa

Save

High interest rates and numerous fees often accompany credit cards these days so an easy process is usually preferred when making a payment toward your Visa card. By paying your Visa bill on time you are able to avoid expensive late fees, increased interest rates and decreased credit scores; the latter of which can have a lasting effect on your ability to get a job or buy a house or car. Banks issue most Visa cards; to pay your bill you would do so through the specific bank that issued your card. Almost every bank that distributes Visa cards offers numerous ways to conveniently pay your bill.

  • Drop off your Visa payment at a local branch of the bank you have your account with. Most banks either have a drop box for payments or a customer service agent will be able to process your payment while you wait.

  • Call your bank's customer service telephone line and pay your Visa bill over the phone. A phone number is listed on the back side of most cards. This option can vary from bank to bank; some may have an automated system while others require that you speak to a customer service representative. Some banks may charge a fee for taking your Visa payment over the phone. Check with your particular bank regarding any service fees that may apply.

  • Pay your bill online. Most banks will allow you to pay your Visa bill directly from your checking account, even if it comes from a different financial institution. Every bank has its own process, but most often paying online requires that you set up an account with a username, password, email address, security questions and your bank account information.

  • Mail your payment to your particular bank that has issued the Visa card. Though many persons pay bills online, writing a check and mailing it in is still an acceptable and convenient way to make a payment. Contact your bank to find the correct address to send your Visa payment.
