Paying it off before the statement is issued is not going to help improve a credit rating. You need to show that you are managing the credit by showing that you are paying the balance off.
If for example you max that card out on day 1, pay it off on day 10, statement issued on day 30 with zero balance, it's that zero balance that is reported to the CRA and will just look like the card was never used that month.
People read things so literally here sometimes.
I pay it off before I get charged.
My Experian score is 985 lol...
