No Minimum on Securus Online...
« on: June 04, 2015, 07:04:14 PM »
Perhaps I'm late to the game, but when I used Securus online to make a payment, there was always a $25 minimum.  Today I noticed the minimum was $0.01.  I put on $20 and then tried another transaction for $3.50 and it went through as well.  I thought I would post in case not everyone was aware of the change.  I know some people have a hard time putting $25 on at one time.. It looks like you could put enough on for 1 or 2 calls now.

So weird. Just checked again on both my phone and the ipad and I can put $.01 as the minimum. I'm not complaining. I just wish it were the same for everyone!

Wow. Wish I had that capability. I wonder if it has to do with where you're located?

If you use the textpay option, you can do as little as $10 at a time.

I've used it for almost 2 years now, it's a much better option for me, because I am not always near a computer. I've had no problems with textpay.

 :wc15:

I set up textpay on the securustech.net website.  Go into the Manage Account option, textpay is the last option on my list.  Just fill in your information, I have mine set to send me an alert when I am under $10.00, it will send me a text that say reply with PAY to fund your account, I hit reply, type pay and then the money is on the phone account immediately.
