Paying online in MetCat Finna 

You can pay fees online. When you log in to your MetCat Finna account, you see the total balance of your fees and the fees that are payable online. 

If your fees amount to 15 euros or more, your loaned item has reservations, or you have already renewed the loan 10 times, you cannot renew your loan. After you have paid the fines, you can renew the items which have no reservations and which you have renewed less than 10 times.

Payment is possible via Finnish online banks or by using credit cards (Visa or Mastercard). You cannot change the amount of the payment, therefore the amount must be paid fully.  If the fee is less than 1 €, it cannot be paid online.

Remember to renew your loans when paying overdue payments online

When paying overdue fees, remember to renew your loans as well. Then the same loans will not accrue more late fees. Payment does not automatically extend the loan period.
