If they don't show as being paid

Then file a dispute on the Credit Bureaus websites.  

be aware that they can continue to show up on your report for 7 years even after being paid off.  They should show as being paid off, but they become part of your credit history.  

Good luck

Paying does not remove a collection.  You can get it updated but it won't get removed.  If you want removal you need to negotiate a pay for delete before paying.
