The Wells Fargo credit card minimum payment is either $25 or 1% of your new balance, plus interest and fees, whichever is greater. If your entire account balance is less than $25, then your balance amount is the minimum payment. Note that any past-due amounts will also be added to the minimum payment.
What you should know before making a Wells Fargo credit card payment:
You must make your Wells Fargo credit card minimum payment every month by the due date listed on your statement.
Failure to pay on time will result in a late fee, and can lead to credit score damage if you’re more than 30 days late.
Paying more than the minimum payment each month will reduce your interest charges. Better yet, avoid interest charges altogether by paying the balance in full, if possible.
If you choose to carry a balance on your Wells Fargo credit card, you will start to owe interest daily and you will lose your grace period on new purchases. That means future purchases will begin to accrue interest immediately.
To see your Wells Fargo credit card minimum payment, check your monthly statement from your online account.
The Wells Fargo credit card grace period is at least 25 days, lasting from the end of the billing cycle until the payment due date. This means cardholders have at least 25 days from the moment their monthly statement closes until the due date to pay their credit card bill. As long as you pay in full during this period, you will owe no interest on your monthly purchases.… read full answer
What you should know about the Wells Fargo credit card grace period:
Keep in mind that you are not required to pay the entire balance by the due date. But if you decide to pay less than the full amount due, you will lose the grace period.
If you lose your grace period, the remaining balance and any new purchases on your Wells Fargo credit card will start to accrue interest that compounds daily.
To get a credit card grace period back, you will need to pay the statement balance in full for two consecutive months.
It’s also important to note that grace periods do not apply to cash advances and balance transfers.

Wells Fargo also charges up to $40 for returned checks or returned payments (meaning there are insufficient funds in the account), but there’s no penalty APR after late payments.… read full answer
How to Avoid Paying a Wells Fargo Credit Card Late Fee
Wells Fargo offers a grace period of at least 25 days between the day your statement closes and your due date. As long as you pay at least the minimum during this period, you will avoid late fees. However, if you don’t pay in full, you will start accruing interest and lose your grace period. To get your grace period back, you have to make up the previous billing cycle’s pending balance and pay the next billing cycle’s balance in full.
If you miss your payment and get charged a late fee, you could always try calling to ask if Wells Fargo will waive the fee. Your chances of this will be better if you have a consistent history of timely payments.
