Verizon Wireless said it will scrap a proposed $2 fee for one-time online or telephone payments, citing "customer feedback."
The fee, which Verizon said would have been a "convenience charge" for customers who make one-time bill payments using a debit or credit card, either online or by telephone, was set to go into effect on January 15.
Verizon had said the fee was designed to "address costs incurred by us for only those customers who choose to make single bill payments."
The plan still would have allowed customers to enroll in a service that would debit their bank accounts or charge their credit cards on a recurring basis for free. Customers also could have avoided the fee by paying at a Verizon store or mailing checks to the company.FULL STORY
