Hi,

Just a quick question. I jumped onto NZ Post at the bill payment:

https://www.nzpost.co.nz/products-services/payments-money/bill-payments

And there are no 'payment methods' listed. I want to pay a bill using a credit card but nothing is listed there. Anyone able to give a heads up whether it is possible to pay bills at NZ Post using a credit card?

I've done it online with them before.  Don't recall having any issues in store, but can't confirm.

Last time I was there, pre-spark name change, I paid a Telecom bill with a credit card. Maybe its changed since then but other people would go there and pay with credit cards just to avoid being charged a surcharge by Telecom/other providers.

I'll have a check tomorrow at the Lower Hutt branch - maybe certain branches do whilst others don't. I'm sure I remember paying a bill using a credit card a while ago but things might have changed.

I think its what your paying for determines whether you can use c/c or not.

For example - can use c/c at supermarket to buy groceries, but not to buy lotto tickets.
At post shop can pay for postage or things in store with c/c, but not buy a vehicle licencing or some bills by c/c.

About year ago I was paying telecom bills there, had to pay cash, they add a $1.50 surcharge onto that now for paying even cash to spark now. Eftpos was ok to, but just the non credit card ones.

For NZ Post services online like redirect mail, looks like they take credit cards for those payments.
