I did about 3 weeks ago.
Have too many phones... This is how I limit my monthly phone payment.
Koodo $30 plan, PM $38 5GB plan, PM $8 plan to replace Speakout,

How? What do you put for first and last name?
Also what about address for the prepaid card?

IIRC, Koodo payment does not ask for address. I used the name printed on the card "For You" as my name.

Thanks, did you confirm on the prepaid credit card website that payment went through?

No. I did not. But you can check after couple days.

I've used prepaid CCs from Wow deals to pay my tab.

I can't remember exactly but I would have used either the name on the Koodo account or "For You".

I had used "For You" since I got my first CC prepaid card from WOW mobile in 2016. Since then, I had been using "For You" for the prepaid CC purchased from WM and BB without any issue. Just checked Koodo payment page. It does not ask for address.

Depends on what kind of prepaid credit card it is. Some of them have a portal specifically so you can login and change the billing name/address on the card to your information. I believe that's what I did with the one I used.

Interesting. Koodo's bill-paying page says that the name has to match the card. I have long wondered what would have happened if I didn't have a match there. It looks like that requirement isn't always enforced.

Having developed online credit card processing software for multiple websites, I don't remember even having the OPTION to check that the name properly matched. It might be there, but we never ever checked it. User data entry is NOTORIOUSLY unreliable, so we softened our checks even further - as long as the house number and postal code matched, we considered it a billing address match. That way you don't have to worry about "street" vs "st" vs "st.", etc.
