How to Add or Delete a Bill Payee to Pay My Credit Card Bill at Simplii Financial

For a variety of reasons, including 3 gas stations within a few km of our home, we often buy gas at Petro-Canada. In 2017, they stopped offering a Petro-Canada branded credit card and instead started offering a discount if you pay for gas using a credit card issued by RBC. So we got an RBC card and set it up online to get Petro-Points. Then I needed to add the RBC card to our list of Bill Payees at Simplii Financial so that I could pay the credit card bill when it arrived and delete the listing for our old CIBC Petro-Canada card.

The Enter Account Number and Nickname Page

If you want to recognize your bill payee easily, you may want to give it a nickname.
For example, I’m calling this RBC Visa account Petro-Can Gas

  1. If so, in the Nickname text box, type a helpful nickname for the account.
  2. Type the payment account number provided on your bill in the Account Number text box.
    Simplii may give you some hints about how to find the correct number. For RBC VISA it shows a little diagram of where it is on the billing statement.
