How to get account in collections to stop affecting credit score
Currently I have one account in collections and it is a small amount I can easily pay off, my question is how do i get this to stop affecting my credit score promptly?

What is the step by step process involved, does it begin with paying off the said account?

I am new to Credit Karma and credit scores in general and I am unsure what to do after reading different advice on the internet/forums here.
