The easiest way to pay Credit One credit card bills is either online or via the mobile app. You can also make a Credit One credit card payment by phone at (877) 825-3242, by mail, through Western Union or MoneyGram.
Here’s how you can pay your Credit One credit card:
Online: Simply log in to your Credit One account or your Credit One Bank mobile app and navigate to the payments section. You can make a payment with a debit card, ATM card, or bank account, depending on whether you make a standard payment or an express payment. Standard Credit One credit card payments can only be made by bank transfer, and will reflect on your account balance within 7 days. Express Credit One credit card payments cost $9.95 each, and can be made with a debit card, ATM card, or bank account. They are processed faster than normal payments and will reflect on your available credit, at least partially, within a couple of days.
By phone: It may be possible to make a payment over the phone by calling (877) 825-3242. Enter your Credit One card number when it’s requested, and follow the prompts to make a payment. Or, you can speak to a representative to help you through the payment process.
By mail: You can also send a check or money order, along with the payment coupon attached to your monthly statement, by mail to: Credit One Bank Payment Services P.O. Box 60500 City of Industry, CA 91716-0500.
Through Western Union/MoneyGram: If you prefer to send a payment through MoneyGram or Western Union, you will need to provide your 15 or 16-digit Credit One card number, along with a special verification code. For MoneyGram payments, the Credit One “receive code” is 1430. For Western Union payments, the “code city” is CREDITONEBANK and the “code state” is NV. Note that both Western Union and MoneyGram charge fees for sending payments.

You can make a Credit One online payment using a debit/ATM card or your bank account. Credit One also offers two online payment options: Express Payment or Standard Payment.
With Express Payments, you can use either your debit card or your bank account, and your available credit should update by the following day. For Standard Payments, you can only use a bank account and your available credit will update within 7 days. There is no fee for making a Standard Payment, but making an Express Payment will cost you $9.95. To ensure you don't get charged any late fees, your online payment must be submitted by 2pm PST the day of your due date.
Once your online account has been set up, you can access your account from your smartphone using the Credit One Bank mobile app.
The maximum credit line for a Credit One credit card is not publicly disclosed by the issuer. If approved for a Credit One card, applicants can expect a minimum credit line of $300 to $500 initially, depending on the card and their credit standing.
Credit One cards are designed primarily for people with bad credit (score of 639 or less) or no credit. The lower your credit score is, the lower your Credit One account’s maximum spending amount is likely to be. Credit One may periodically review your account for an automatic credit line increase. This usually occurs after you’ve had the card for at least 6 months. Credit One doesn’t release specific criteria for granting automatic increases.… read full answer
It’s important to know that if you’re approved, the amount of your credit line that’s available for spending may be reduced before you even use the card. Credit One charges an annual fee of $0 - $95 for the first year (up to $99 after). If there is an annual fee, it will be automatically applied against your credit line. So, if your initial credit line is $300, you could start out with as little as $205.
If Credit One’s maximum credit lines aren’t enough to meet your needs, focus on rebuilding your credit to the point where you can apply for a card with the potential for a higher credit line and lower fees.
When you compare Credit One vs. Capital One, you quickly understand just how different they are.

Capital One is one of the largest and most diversified banks in America. They offer a wide range of financial products other than credit cards, including auto loans, checking accounts and savings accounts. Credit One is a relatively small bank that only issues credit cards and doesn’t have deposit accounts.
As credit card issuers, Credit One is the same as Capital One in the sense that it offers cards to people with damaged credit. But Capital One has cards for people of all credit levels, including those you need fair, good or excellent credit to get. Capital One also issues student credit cards and business credit cards, while Credit One does not.
Below, you can find a detailed look at the similarities and differences between these two companies and what they offer to consumers.
