Will the authorized payment agent locations charge a fee?

There are both free and convenience locations. Following is an explanation of both types of locations:

Authorized free agents take payments at no cost to the customer. Not all areas have free agents.

Authorized convenience agents charge a small fee to make the payment. Not all areas have convenience agents.

Each free agent must post a sign stating that it is an authorized Verizon payment location and that no fee is charged to make a payment.

How will I be charged at an authorized convenience location?

The authorized convenience agent will charge a fee for each account being paid.

For example, if you have 3 accounts and you are paying with one check, you will be charged 3 times the fee (once for each account). If you have one account but are paying with 2 checks, you will be charged a single fee amount.
