Can I set up my credit card so it automatically deducts payments from my chequing or savings account?
Effective April 30, cardholders will have the option to sign up for Collabria's AutoPay feature. This new feature allows members to have their monthly credit card payments automatically deducted from their chequing or savings account. Two payment options are available for cardholders who sign up for AutoPay:
- Minimum payment amount - The minimum payment amount shown on the last credit card statement is automatically withdrawn on the Payment Due Date from the member's bank account each month and paid to their credit card.
- Full Balance - The full balance shown on the last statement is automatically withdrawn from the member's bank account each month on the Payment Due Date and paid to their credit card account.
If you have questions about how to set this up, don't hesitate to contact our teams.
Why is the GLOBAL PAYMENT™ Mastercard® no longer available?
CUETS Financial* is ending the program for all credit unions across Canada and no current replacement exists.
While we recognize this change impacts our members in many different ways, we remain committed to ensuring we are there to support their needs as best we can. Our new partnership with Collabria** has allowed us to expand the credit card products available to our members.
