You can pay by Direct Debit quickly and easily. It’s the most convenient way to make sure your bill is always paid in full and on time. You choose the date, frequency and the amount you pay, and payment is sent to us each time without you having to do anything else.

Pay in person

You can pay by Watercard when you take along your bill or Watercard, along with your payment amount, to your nearest PayPoint store.

PayPoint stores, often newsagents and other similar high street shops, make up a network of over 28,000 locations across the UK where you pay utilities bills.

You can also pay at a PayPoint store using a payment booklet.

If you would prefer to pay over the counter at your bank or building society, don’t forget to take your bill with you.

This service is free at most banks, however we recommend you always check first. 

You can take your bill, along with your preferred payment method of cash, cheque or card, to any Post Office branch and make a payment.

The Post Office may charge you for this service.
