Hello...I set up automatic credit card payment with Rogers. However, when they charged me, I didnt have enough fund on my credit card and the inquire was denied. Will this kind of stuff hurt my credit score? BTW, I had cancelled automatic credit card payment.

Hi Aaron,

Welcome to this community Smile

Can you tell whether or not you are already late on your payment? If not, then this may not hurt your score. However, if you are late on making the payment, your score will be hurt.

if you cross your time limit then yes definitely it will hurt for your credit score. pay before last date then your credit score is safe.

If your due date is say...the 12th of every month. Technically, you;re not reported 'late' to the credit bureau until the account hits 30 days past the due date- which would be the following month.

You'll receive a late fee and collection calls would begin immediately following the missed payment - but far as your credit score, it wouldn't be affected negatively until that 31st day of nonpmt.

Your credit score may get hurt if u make late payments. 35% of your credit rating consists of payment times. However, as per the new credit reform act, effective from 22nd Aug, 2010, the late fine cannot exceed $25. However, your creditor may increase the interest rate and if you are 31 days late, that is reported to the credit bureau.

If your due date is say the 12th of each and every month. Technically, you;re not reported 'late' towards the credit rating bureau till the account hits 30 days past the due date- which will be the subsequent month.

You will obtain a late charge and selection calls would start instantly subsequent the missed payment - but far as your credit rating, it wouldn't be impacted negatively till that 31st day of nonpmt.

May be your credit card score can be hurt because of your late payments.
#seolss11 - Says,

yes. if you will not pay in time then of course they will hurt you.. so better way is pay in time..

From personal experiences, anyway...I'm not considered 'late' if my payment isn't 30 days (or more) late. Actually, some places don't consider 'late payments' until 60 days has passed.

Don't be afraid to use your credit card as the auto pay option for your bills -- just be sure to pay off that credit card bill on time every month so as not to rack up your balance and any interest on that balance. If you sign up for a rewards program with your credit card and expect points (or miles) to accrue as you pay your bills, be sure to read the fine print as automatic bill payments don't always qualify.

Instead of autopay, if you just keep a receipt of your cc purcahses you can pay them off the day you made them. I have a dry erase board with dates and ammount of purchases I make with my cc. 3 days after a purchase I go online and pay it off. I might be different because I use my credit card for all purchases. It's because it's a reward card and since I don't have an annual fee and pay off banalces before the get a interest rate charge, having the credit card is actually making me money!!

nothing reports on your credit until it is 30 days late. You will incur a fee now for not having the funds in the account..but call and make your minimum payment asap...

For a three-digit number, your credit score packs a big wallop. A low score can thrust you into the financial abyss of the sub-prime market, costing you thousands of dollars in added interest over the life of a car loan or mortgage. Consumers who have a very low score --or no score at all-- may not get credit on any terms..

Others are skeptical of the claimed nondiscriminatory effects of scoring. Consumer advocates worry, for example, that low-income workers, minorities, or segments of the population that do not have access to traditional credit sources like major credit cards or mortgages may score lower than others. Another major concern, documented in various studies, is the accuracy of data in the underlying credit report. (See the Resources section at the end of this guide for links to studies on accuracy in credit reporting and credit scoring.)

If you have 'bad' credit, some consumers can still get credit. However...if it's a 'High risk' CC or something similiar, your % rate may be very high. Sometimes you can get loans using your own savings account as collateral. Kind of an 'in house credit' (at your bank or credit union). And, that really helps to build your credit with them because they (banks, credit unions) do report that to the CRA's as you paying off a loan. 'Baby steps' is the way to go!! When I divorced (5 years ago) my credit score was below a 300. NOW..it's 550 to 600!! Trust me..the 'baby steps' method does work. It takes time to build your credit up again.
