If You Miss a Payment

Missing a credit card payment is never a good idea. But it is an especially bad thing when it comes to the Capital One Walmart credit card, mostly because of the high interest rate charged by this card.

When you miss a Capital One Walmart credit card payment, a few things will happen.

  • Late Fee: You will be charged a Late Payment Fee of as much as $39
  • APR Increase: If you miss a payment, Capital One may raise your APR in response
  • Credit Score Hit: Whether you pay your bills on time is the biggest factor in the calculation of your credit scores. When you miss a payment to your Walmart credit card, Capital One may report that to the credit bureaus, causing a big hit to your credit scores. While the exact formulae of credit score calculation are kept secret by the 3 credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion), generally a single late payment that is more than 30 days past due can reduce your credit score by as many as 100 points. That is a very significant drop as far as credit scores are concerned. Worse still, a missed payment will typically stay on your credit reports for as many as 7 years

What to do when you miss a payment:

  • Make a Payment As Soon As Possible: The longer you wait, the more interest you will be charged
  • Call Customer Service: If you have only missed your payment by 2 or 3 days, you can ask customer service to waive or reduce your late fee

Use Auto Pay to Avoid Late Fee

You can set up auto-pay on your Capital One account online so that each month on due date a payment will be made automatically on your behalf. You do not have to lift a finger and there will never be any late fee.

Make sure you have set up your Capital One online account and linked your checking account as an associated payment method as described in the section above.

  1. Go to the Capital One Walmart website here
  2. Click on the Sign In button on the lower left part of the screen
  3. Enter the username and password you have chosen for yourself when you set up your online Capital One account
  4. Click Sign In
  5. Select the Capital One credit card you want to set up auto-pay for – in this case, it would be your Capital One Walmart credit card
  6. Click on Set Up Automatic Payment
  7. Select the amount of money you want to auto-pay each time. Your options are:
    • Statement Balance: If you choose this, you will not be incurring interests on your credit card
    • Minimum Payment: This is the minimum amount you have to pay to avoid being charged with a late fee
    • Fixed Amount: The minimum amount for this option is $35
  8. If you have more than 1 checking account set up as your payment method, you can select which checking account you want to use for your automatic payment
  9. Make sure you have enough money in your checking account on the payment due date each month to cover your chosen payment amount. Otherwise, you will be charged an overdraft fee by your bank
  10. Click Submit
  11. You are all set. Your payment will be made automatically each month on your payment due date
