MWA Offers Credit/Debit Card Convenience

Jul 20, 2018 by Chris Wood, Ph.D.


Effective August 1, 2018, the MWA will add a convenience fee to payments made via credit or debit card.

Effective August 1, 2018, the Macon Water Authority (MWA) will add a convenience fee to all customer credit and debit card transactions.

The Authority will assess $2.50 per transaction for residential customers paying their bill with a credit or debit card, with a $500 limit per transaction. If bills are in excess of $500, customers can pay by credit card, but it will require multiple transactions, with the appropriate fee applied.

Likewise, the MWA will charge 2.75% of the total transaction for non-residential customers who pay their bill with a credit/debit card. The MWA accepts VISA, MasterCard, and Discover.

The credit/debit card convenience fee does not apply to customer transactions made with other forms of payment, such as by cash, check, money order, or if payments are made online or over the phone without the use of a card. The convenience fee also is not applicable to automated transfer methods of payments to the MWA from a customer’s bank or financial institution. (Although, a customer’s bank may have their own fees for such services.)
