Currently, there are a number of credit card service filings available via Corporate Online, Name Requests Online, Societies Online and Court Services Online. You can see the available product links under Credit Card Products on the left side of the BC OnLine home page.

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 purposes only, the first and last four digits of the card number along with the authorization number for the transaction are stored. The BC Registries and Court Services do not store any credit card identification.

For confirmation of the payment, depending on what application you are working in, you have the option of receiving an email receipt or transaction summary for credit card transactions.

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


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.'

The Prime Contact or Contact can change your verification word by updating it in Account Management.
