How Do I Set Up Autopay for My Verizon Wireless Bill?

Setting up autopay with your Verizon Wireless account is pretty easy. You can use the app or enroll via the website and you can use checking account or a debit or credit card. Verizon also allows you choose the payment date, but please keep in mind that there are some rules to follow if you want to take advantage of any discounts in case you qualify.

So you have your phone through Verizon Wireless and would like to set up autopay. That's easy. This guide will show you how.

Important Tips to Keep in Mind

  1. You can enroll in autopay via the app or website.
  2. You can use a credit or debit card or a checking account.
  3. You can also select the date for the automatic payment to be withdrawn. Please keep in mind that if you choose the 29th, 30th or 31st, the payment is withdrawn on the next day for months that don't have those dates.
  4. Autopay with checking accounts are processed the next business day for dates that fall on weekends or holidays.
  5. Standard accounts that are eligible for the $5 or $10 per-line Autopay and paperless billing discount cannot use a credit card as a payment method.
  6. Only the account owner can set up and manage autopay on Prepaid Family accounts.
  7. Autopay can be turned off but you would lose any discounts and need to make manual payments each month to maintain your service.
  8. You can make a one-time payment while you are on Autopay. If you pay the full balance of your account, then the next automatic payment is skipped. If you pay less than the full balance, then the remaining balance will be deducted on the next automatic payment date.
  9. If you have any questions regarding your account, please call Verizon Wireless here.
