Account suspended from autopay/payments not working

Ryip88

I've been using the $15/30days plan for a year now with autopay. A few days ago:

  • The autopay didn't apply and no payment were taken from my credit card.
  • My account status was set to "Plan Expired" and my account is suspended.
  • My phone no longer has working services (calls don't work).

Solutions I've tried:

  • Calling *611 to pay through my pre-registered credit card
  • On selfserve web, make a manual payment with my current credit card
  • Make a payment with a different credit card
  • Designate a default credit card for autopay

From these solutions, the issue seems to be Public not accepting my credit cards. This is the message after trying to make a payment:

"Unable to Process Transaction
Sorry, we are unable to verify your credit card information, so this purchase could not be completed. Your credit card has not been charged."

 

I verified my credit card info is correct, and they work as I was able to make purchases elsewhere. Because my account is currently suspended, I cannot change the plan either.

Sorry to hear of this failed Autopay, I would let the Customer Support Agents (CSA) know. And you could also contact them if you are having continues issues, or if the advice on this thread is not working.

 

Methods to contact the Customer Support Agents (CSA): https://www.publicmobile.ca/en/bc/get-help/articles/contact-a-moderator

 

So, did you try this:

  1. Add Funds to your Plan Amount through SELF SERVE, try by CHOOSING The "OTHER AMOUNT" option in the drop down area, not the "Amount Due"    (or by calling 611 if you have a card registered)
  2. Then, Select Resume/Reactivate Service
  3. Reboot your phone.

 

 

Toggling your phone to Lost/Stolen in your Self Serve account, then back to Resume/Reactivate sometimes helps finicky reactivations.

Wait 1 hour, clear your cache and cookies, open an incognito tab and try again.

 

The system is likely on a temporary lockout and should work after that.

 

You could also purchase a public mobile payment voucher at many retail and mobile locations and apply it via self serve.

@Ryip88...for now, get payment vouchers at your local Shell Gas station or London Drugs, dial 611 to add them to your account and Reactivate account. That'll get you going then you can deal with cc issue later.

Alternative is on-line vouchers from ding.com or recharge .com...but they do have a $5 fee.

Bon chance.
