Verizon FiOS customers faced with $3.50 online credit card payment fee

Paying your Verizon (NYSE: VZ) FiOS bill online may be more convenient than licking stamps and sending it out in the snail mail box, but now the telco is going to charge you $3.50 if you pay with a credit card.

The reason, argues Verizon, is that it will "begin using a new vendor to process credit/debit/ATM transactions."

To avoid this $3.50 charge, Verizon advises customers to sign up for autopay using their credit card. However, as pointed out by Broadband DSL Reports, relying on autopay is a dangerous proposition especially for consumers that don't carefully track the bills they pay every month especially for a telco that's not exactly known for accurate billing practices.
