How to Refill or Auto Refill Your Account

Use Auto Refill (recommended)

We recommend using the Auto Refill option because we’ll refill your account before you run out. You won’t have to worry about insufficient funds or your balance expiring. There are two options:

 

  • Low Balance option: with this option, your account will automatically be refilled with the amount you select (same as voucher values) whenever your account balance is about to expire or if your balance falls below $1.
  • Recurring option: Ideal for those on a By the Month plan or with a monthly add-on. Auto Refill will charge your credit card for the amount of the monthly plan and/or add-ons on their respective due dates as they may be different. Combine it with the Low Balance option to cover pay-per-use fees and 9-1-1 charges.

Things to Know

  • The name and address of your prepaid account must match the information registered with your credit card’s financial institution.
  • You must be the primary cardholder.
  • The credit card must be issued by a Canadian financial institution. We aren’t able to accept Prepaid Visa, Visa Debit, Debit MasterCard, international and third party credit cards at this time.

How to register for Auto Refill

  • Before registering for Auto Refill you will need to register your credit card with Fido. You can do this by accessing the Refill Now button via the My Account Overview page, then selecting the Auto Refill option that suits you. This process can take up to 48 hours.

Using Interac® Online

Interac Online allows you to pay for goods and services on the internet directly from your bank account. However, most banks are phasing it out in favour of providing co-badged cards. They are easy to recognize: if you see the Interac logo along with the Visa or Mastercard logo of your debit card, you own a co-badged card. Your co-badged card can still handle Interac transactions in stores and ATM withdrawals, as well as prepaid refills, but it now uses a different network for online payments. This was a decision made by your financial institution, so it's best to contact them if you have questions about Interac Online.

 

  1. Log into My Account.
  2. From your Overview, select the REFILL NOW button.
  3. Select One-time Refill, then select Interac. You’ll be redirected to a page where you can select your bank.
  4. Once you’ve selected your bank, choose the account you’d like to use to pay for your refill.
  5. Once you’ve chosen your account you’ll be redirected back to a Fido confirmation page.
