Verizon scraps $2 fee for one-time payments

After a customer backlash, Verizon Wireless on Friday dropped a plan to start charging $2 for every payment subscribers make over the phone or online with their credit or debit cards.

Verizon wanted to steer people to electronic check payments, which are cheaper, and automatic credit card payments, which are more reliable.

A petition on Change.org against the fees had gathered more than 57,000 names by Friday afternoon, a day after Verizon, the country’s largest cellphone company, announced the fees.

Verizon Wireless serves 91 million phones and other devices on accounts that pay the company directly, and more who pay indirectly through other companies. It’s a joint venture of Verizon Communications Inc. of New York and Vodafone Group PLC of Britain.
