Continental Finance offers credit cards to consumers. Your card is issued based on your credit score, which determines whether or not you are approved or denied for a card. Once you are approved for a card and begin using it, you have a selection of payment options available to you. Pay your bill using any of the four payment options; online, over the phone, through the mail or using a wire transfer. You can pay the minimum balance due, the full balance or anything in between each month.

Pay 24/7 Online

Your first step, and the easiest payment method for most people, is to go to the Continental Finance website and log in to your account. Choose the "Pay My Bill" option and enter your bank's routing number, your bank account number and the date you want your payment made. Specify your payment amount and submit your payment. This service is available 24/7. You can also use it to manage your account, such as changing your address and personal details, as well as making payments online.

Make Payments By Mail

Alternatively, you can make the payment by mail. Simply remove the return portion of your monthly statement and mail it with a check in the amount of your payment to the address specified on your statement: Continental Finance P.O. Box 8099 Newark, DE 19714-8099. Review the "How to pay" section on your monthly statement for specific details. It will take a few days for the payment to be processed so don't leave it to the last minute to mail your check.

Pay By Telephone

To make the payment over the telephone, call a customer care representative. Call handlers are available six days a week to take your payment. Call Monday to Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 9 p.m., or Saturday between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. The number is 800-518-6141. Provide the customer care representative with your name, card number and the last four digits of your Social Security Number as well as your bank account information and the amount you want to pay.

Make Payment Through Western Union

Another option is to make a payment through Western Union by going to your local Western Union office. Send your payment to Continental Finance at the code city "GoforGold" in Delaware and include your full credit card number. Pay for your wire and keep a copy of the receipt. Western Union has more than 43,000 agent locations in the United States, but if there is no location near you, you also have the option of calling or using the mobile app to make your payment. Visit the Western Union website for more details.

Pay Through Money Gram

Finally, you can submit your payment through Money Gram. Simply visit your nearest Money Gram location and arrange to send your payment to "Continental Finance, Newark, DE" with the receive code of "5854." Be sure to include your full credit card number. Pay the fee charged by Money Gram and obtain a receipt for your transaction.
