What is Citi PayAll?
Citi PayAll is a service that enables Citi cardholders to make payments to various Payees using a Citi credit card. You can now make several payments - such as school fees, rent, membership / association fees, retainer / professional fees, and insurance premiums for just a small fee. These transactions will also allow you to earn miles, points, or rebates.
To start using Citi PayAll, please sign up via the Citi Mobile® Application, or through the link in the email or SMS sent to you.
Who can I pay with the Citi PayAll Service?
Citi PayAll allows you to pay for school fees, rent, membership / association fees, retainer / professional fees, and insurance premiums using your Citi Credit Card.

For this service, only domestic / local transfers will be allowed.

I've lost my card! Will my payments continue to recur?
If you have lost your card, your payments will continue on the newly reissued card. As mentioned in the terms & conditions - if you have scheduled a recurring Payment on a designated card and such card is renewed or replaced with a card bearing the same card number, you acknowledge that these recurring Payments will be charged to such renewed or replaced card.

How will I know if my set up or payment is successful?
You will receive an SMS notification alert and an email when the payment has been set up successfully, as well as when the payment has been successfully charged to your credit card. Successful payments will be reflected in your credit card statement.
In line with this, if your payments are recurring – you will also receive a notification alert every month, when the transaction is charged to your credit card.
We will also notify you if your payment fails to go through.
My payment got rejected. What do I do now?
You will receive an SMS notification and/or an email when your payment is unsuccessful. For this case, you will not be able to proceed with the Citi PayAll Service. Please make alternative arrangements to ensure your recipient gets paid on time.

What happens if I input incorrect details and set up the payment to the wrong recipient / beneficiary?
If you have accidentally placed the wrong payment / recipient details – and this was processed successfully, the transaction amount with the service fee will not be refundable, and will still appear on your statement.

Can I amend or cancel my transaction after I have confirmed it?
Unfortunately, you cannot amend your transactions once it has been set up. However, should you wish to cancel the transaction, please log into your Citi Mobile® Application.
