    How would you translate "effectuer un paiement" ? To "make a payment" ? To "do a payment" ? Obviously there is the verb "to pay", but is there a specific word for paying by credit card ?

    Effectuer un paiement = to make a payment.

    I think there is not a specific expression for paying by CC but I am not really sure.

    can I say "Payment is to be done before..." or should I say "Payment is to be made before..."

    Thank you for your help.

    'Payment to be made' is better.

    Thank you 0hisa2me !

    Is also "Payment to be done" grammatically correct ?

    It sounds odd to me, but I have heard people say it. I think it's probably better to stick to 'make'.
