Overview: Modern’s Solution is an embedded payments platform for billers that enables customers to pay bills and renew service, even when cash is tight. When an eligible customer selects 'Pay with Modern', Modern enables customers to renew today and defer payment for a month of service. Each month, the customer repays Modern by either renewing service with the biller (loyalty) or repaying Modern with no interest.
How to Pay with Modern:
1. Through a participating biller, select "Pay with Modern" as the payment method.
2. If eligible, review and accept your payment plan, which includes details about the amount due immediately and the payment schedule.
3. Once the payment plan is accepted, Modern is responsible for communicating directly with the biller to renew your service. You should receive a confirmation from the biller within 24-48 hours.
4. Each month during the payment plan, in order to repay Modern, you may choose to either, 1) make an on-time bill payment and renew service directly with the Biller, or 2) make the installment payment to Modern with no interest. In order to meet the payment obligation in either case, you must make the payment no more than five (5) calendar days after the renewal date outlined by the biller.
Eligibility requirements to pay with Modern:
The exact eligibility requirements are unique to every biller and determined by Modern and the biller prior to offering Modern as a payment option. However, Modern maintains basic eligibility requirements where a customer must have:
1. An account with the biller in good standing
2. At least one eligible linked account with Modern. Eligible accounts must at least 60 days old.
3. At least $25 balance in linked account
4. Verified income in last 60 days
Promise to pay
By using our Services, you (as the registered account holder) provide us with unconditional and irrevocable consent and direction to pay the bill issuer in consideration for your agreement and obligation to pay us, together with any additional applicable fees. While we do not impose late fees, if you fail to timely (i) make your bill payments to the bill issuer as per your schedule, or (ii) make installment payments to Modern, you acknowledge that you have failed to pay us. In order to meet the payment obligation to Modern as outlined above, you must make the payment no more than five (5) calendar days after the renewal date outlined by the biller.
Modern warrants that it has no legal or contractual claim against you based on a failure to repay, but Modern will not provide you further access to pay with Modern while any amount remains unpaid under the Modern service. With respect to a failure to repay, Modern warrants it will not engage in any debt collection activities, place the amount owed with or sell to a third party, or report you to a consumer reporting agency. Modern does not waive any rights regarding fraudulent activity, and Modern will pursue instances of fraud.
Agreement to Provide Accurate Information
When you provide information to Modern or in connection with the Services, you agree to provide only true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself.
