WIND Mobile is is now allowing pay-after customers to pay off their account balance online using either MasterCard or Visa. Once a payment is made it will be automatically credited to the account balance allowing customer to verify the payment has gone through.
Up until now, WIND customers had to phone in to pay their bill if they wanted to use plastic. While online credit payments is a welcome addition, I think it WIND should have had it up and running from launch-6 months ago…
Speaking of launching 6 months ago, congratulations to WIND and their staff. Welcome to the Canadian wireless market!
