Bad news, bank account just verified...looks like numbers of payees are not available in QC...?

So far I've tried Tangerine and Fonds FTQ.

That's a big waste of time.

I got a cash advance charge after paying my property taxes with my mastercard. Did anyone else get this?
Oh no. I just paid my Markham property tax installment this morning with my Walmart MC. I even confirmed with PayTM that it wouldn't be charged as a cash advance too. It hasn't posted so will update once it does.

If Mastercard payments end up being cash advances, paytm is going to receive a lot of complaints. I know I asked them before making any payments and they reassured me that there would be no cash advance fee for using a mastercard. On a side note, if you log into your mastercard account online, should it not show online how the payment was categorized? I have never used the cash advance feature so I don't know what to look for.

CC company charges cash advance fee between $3.5 to $5. If you see that charge online, your transaction is a cash advance. The interest charge will be appeared in your next CC statement.

For Telus and Rogers I already have automatic billing set up. If I just used PayTM to put in $50 each into those accounts to get the bonus, will Telus and Rogers just deduct the remaing balance on my next bill and not affect my future auto payments?

Would you see the cash advance fee while the charge is pending? Or will you start to see the cash advance fee once the charge has settled into your account?

I have automatic billing with Rogers as well but I paid $50 to my Rogers account through Paytm to get the $10 credit (Paytm credit by the way to be clear). I am assuming Rogers will charge your credit card the remaining balance due as long as the Paytm charge reaches Rogers before Rogers charges your credit card.

JMO, I don't think cash advance fee will not be charged until your transaction is posted.
You can review the transaction details while it is pending. If the transaction type is purchase, you are safe. 1 week ago, I did a $10 payment using my PC WE MC. It shows up as purchase. There is no cash advance fee.

Maybe it is just MBNA who is categorizing this as cash advance.

Another poster stated that they've been using their MBNA for over a year.

I've been paying using my MBNA for over a year. If this is a recent change, I'm screwed. Just spent over 4k this month alone through PayTM on my MBNA.

I pay Bell Internet bill through PayTM using Tangerine MC. It does not treat as bill payment on the transaction.
Anyone can confirm this?

Something doesn't make sense because I paid BC Hydro and Fortis Gas with MBNA mastercard and didn't see a cash advance charge as a separate line item. Maybe it doesn't appear until the statement is printed or the charge isn't consistent. Could the cash advance fee also depend on whether one has exceeded their credit limit on their MBNA mastercard. I have heard that some credit cards will let you spend over your credit limit but then you might get extra fees. I'm hoping the cash advance fee is the exception and not the rule because paytm assured me that there were no cash advance fees for mastercard unlike visa which they have now disabled on their platform.
