  CREDIT CARD PAYMENT  

Currently, there are a number of credit card service filings available via Corporate Online.

For security of transactions, BC OnLine uses the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, which encrypts information you send to us over the Internet. BC OnLine also requires you use a browser that supports 128-bit encryption for credit card purchases. This encryption process protects your personal information such as your name and credit card number from someone monitoring Internet traffic.

For security of your credit card, BC OnLine will only store the first and last four digits of the card number along with the authorization number for the transaction. The Corporate Registry does not store any credit card identification.

For confirmation of the payment, you have the option of receiving an e-mail receipt for credit card transactions.

Note: Credit cards may NOT be used as a payment method for other services on your BC OnLine account.



 
  VERIFICATION WORD  

YOUR BC ONLINE DEPOSIT ACCOUNT provides a simple, direct way to pay for a number of government services. Any authorized person can request that the cost of a supported service to be debited from their BC OnLine account. Each participating ministry or agency decides how requests for service can be made (in person, over the telephone, by fax, etc.) To prevent the improper use of your BC OnLine debit account, you can choose a secret 'verification word.'

You can change your verification word using the BC OnLine Change Form wizard.




 
  PRODUCT DELIVERY OPTIONS  

If you use BC OnLine's Activity Advisory Service (AAS), you'll need to select a way to be notified when activity takes place. By default, the AAS is set up to deliver advisories to your BC OnLine User Mailbox. If you want advisories delivered to your organization's BC OnLine Account Mailbox, or to an e-mail address, go into the Account Management System from the BC OnLine main menu (as shown above), and select "Product Delivery Options".

Note: Several other services can be set for automatic notification or email delivery.
