It really just depends on the collection agency. Some will remove it without you even having to ask. Others will not remove it, or will put up a fight to do so. If you plan on paying this in full, contact them stating you will pay it in full if they remove it off the report. If they say no, or that they'll report it as a zero balance. Tell them this doesn't matter as most score calculations factor paid and unpaid collections the same. The it's paid is almost pointless, it's still a collection account, even if it's paid.

And I've seen collection agencies remove it when you start setting up monthly payments, even if it's not paid in full. Really just at their discretion. Forgot to address that bit.
