Payment methods and paying your bill

Setting up a Direct Debit is the most convenient way to pay your monthly bill. Your payments will be automatically taken from your account each month, so you don't have to worry about missing your payment due date. It's really easy to set up and manage a Direct Debit in My Account. Here's how to do it:

  1. Go to Manage payment method in My Account
  2. Select the update Direct Debit button
  3. Enter or amend your bank details, then select Update details to save your changes

If the new Direct Debit details are in a different name to the one registered to your account, you can download and fill out our Direct Debit mandate, send it to us and we'll do the rest.

Once set up, all charges including packages and calls will be automatically taken from your account, normally within 7 days of your bill date. Please note that there will be a charge if the payment is refused by your bank. Your payment will be taken on or immediately after your payment due date which can be found on your bill or in My Account. 

We'll give you at least 3 working days' notice before we collect your payment after you've received your bill and if your payment date doesn't work for you, don't worry, you can always change your payment due date in My Account.

If you don't want to pay by Direct Debit, our recurring card payment option is a great alternative that allows you to make automatic credit or debit card payments each month. You can set up and manage your recurring card payment in My Account by following the steps below.

  1. Go to Manage payment method in My Account
  2. Choose Move to recurring card payment from the Useful links options
  3. Enter your card details and select Update details to confirm your changes


The changes will take a few minutes to take effect and once complete you'll see a confirmation message telling you your payment method has been updated. You can save up to 5 different payment cards for your convenience. 


The easiest way to make a secure one-time payment is online through My Account.

  1. Go the the Bills and payments page in My Account
  2. Select Make a card payment
  3. Enter your payment amount and Continue
  4. Fill in your card details and Submit your payment

Important: If you have a Direct Debit set up and you make any one-off payments within 3 working days of the Direct Debit due date, the Direct Debit payment will still be taken in addition to your one-off payment. We'll let you know if this applies to you in the first step of the online card payment process.


We also offer a range of alternative payment options which may be more convenient for you.
