Why isn't my recent payment reflected on my balance? 

Payments made online or via phone will not be immediately reflected on your balance. Once a payment has been submitted, please allow 2-3 business days for processing before your payment will be reflected on your account. You can confirm or verify that your payment has been submitted by going to the Payment History section of your online account located under My Bills. Payment History will show all payments made within the past 90 days either online or by phone.


What happens if I did not receive a payment confirmation? 

When you reach the end of the payment process, you will get a confirmation message confirming your actions. If you did not receive a confirmation message, you can verify that your payment has been submitted and obtain your payment reference number by going to the Payment History section of your online account located under My Bills. If your payment is not displayed in the Payment History section, your payment was not received. Please submit your payment again.

When will my online bill payment be posted? 

Payments generally take 2 to 3 business days to post to your account.

What is an Authorization Number and what should I do with it? 

An Authorization Number is a 6-character code automatically issued by your bank whenever they approve credit card transactions. We recommend that you keep this number as part of your permanent payment record, indicating that your credit card payment was successfully processed.

What happens if my credit card transaction has been declined? 

If your credit card had been declined, the payment cannot be applied to your account. We recommend that you contact your card-issuing bank immediately. Provide them with your account information, as well as any details associated with this transaction. 

I want to pay by electronic check; how do I identify my Bank Routing Number? 

Also referred to as an ABA Number, a Bank Routing Number is the 9-digit code that identifies your bank or credit union. This number appears at the bottom of each check, generally to the left of your checking account number. This data is enclosed in "brackets" that resemble a smiley face.
 

What are the NSF and Electronic Signature Authorization Statement? 

Prior to processing an electronic check payment, Cincinnati Bell asks that you read and agree to both an NSF fee statement and an Electronic Signature Authorization statement. The NSF fee statement outlines the fees that will be charged to your account should any electronic check payment be returned because of insufficient funds in your checking account. This fee will be added to your monthly account balance, and is in addition to any fees that may be charged to your account by your member bank or credit union.

The Electronic Signature Authorization statement permits Cincinnati Bell to accept payment on your behalf via an electronic check, per your authorization to proceed without a paper signature.

Cincinnati Bell's NSF Statement is as follows:


I hereby acknowledge that my Cincinnati Bell Account will be assessed a $ 25.00 administrative fee by Cincinnati Bell for any electronic check payments made for which funds are not available. I recognize that this fee will be separate and distinct from any fees charged by my member bank or credit union for said overdrafts.

Cincinnati Bell's Electronic Signature Authorization is as follows:

I hereby authorize Cincinnati Bell to process an electronic check payment on my behalf from the checking account identified in this transaction for the purpose of bill payment. I understand that the payment amount will be deducted from my checking account.
