  • Easy Payments

    Making a payment shouldn’t give you a headache. Here's what you should know:

    • If there’s a balance on your account, you’ll be required to make monthly payments
    • You’ll receive monthly account statements and you must pay at least the minimum payment by the due date shown on your account statement
    • Payments must be made in Canadian currency

    There are four easy ways to pay your Mastercard bill:

    1) Online, telephone, bank machine: Automated payments are your quickest and most convenient option. Online, telephone and bank machine payments at most major financial institutions are credited the same day provided you make your payment by 5pm CST on a banking day. These payments are reflected on your online summary 2-3 days afterwards.

    2) Pre-Authorized Debits - Enroll for this service today and never miss a payment. Authorize us to automatically withdraw either your minimum payment due or your full statement balance from your bank account on your payment due date. Go to pcfinancial.ca/pad to download the form.
