Cooperative establishes a minimum payment amount
The Cooperative has placed a minimum payment amount on all transactions processed in our offices, including Prepaid. Effective February 1, 2014, all payments processed in either the Sumter or Camden office must be $10 or greater. This change is due in part to the increase in traffic and the increased cost of processing smaller payments, most of which are PrePaid accounts.
In order to make payment more convenient, we have changed the minimum payment amount for all debit and credit card transactions from $15 to $10.
We continue to look for ways to keep our costs down for all members of Black River. We believe these small changes will make a difference in helping us serve you more efficiently.
