You inquired how fast your score would incresae when you pay the bills.   The type of bill you are paying has an impact on the response.  If you are paying an old debt which was previously past due and/or in collections, the increase in the score could take as long as 7 years from the date it was reported late/deliquent.   If you are talking current debts, the score will fluctuate weekly/monthly, depending on when the creditor reports the reduced balance.   Generally, it takes 30-60 days on the report you see here on Credit Karma.  Credit cards routinely only report once per month, and the bureau can take another week or so to reflect that in their system and thus, it would appear here on Credit Karma on your next weekly update.
