Re: Do the number of on-time payments matter?

I don't think the amount of payments, say 77 on time vs 100 on time payments really factors in that much.  What really matters is the fact that they were on time and the TLs are positive.  Yes, an account paid to $0 counts as a positive.  Basically anything not late counts as a positive.  Remember though, one 30 day recent late will have a big impact.  It will diminish over time.  The best way to ensure your scores is to pay on time.
