It won't take long

  1. Log in and activate your account

    Log in to your account and fill in your details in the Direct Debit section. You’ll need to have your bank details (your sort code and account number) handy.

  2. We'll contact your bank

    We’ll get in touch with your bank and set up the Direct Debit for you – we’ll let you know when it’s all set up.

  3. And you're done

    Once we've set up your Direct Debit, we'll start taking your payment every month. You'll start seeing the difference in your standing charge straight away.

How does our fixed monthly Direct Debit work?

  • We'll estimate how much you'll use each month

    When you choose to pay by fixed monthly Direct Debit, we’ll estimate how much you’ll use for the coming year based on how much you’ve used across the last twelve months.

  • You'll pay a monthly payment

    We’ll then average out the cost to make up your monthly payment. A fixed monthly Direct Debit helps you to spread the cost of your bill across the year, rather than paying a high bill in the winter and a low one in the summer*.

  • We'll adjust your standing charge

    If you’re currently paying on receipt of your bill (e.g. pay at the post office or send us a cheque), you could save up to £70 off your standing charge with a fixed monthly Direct Debit. If you’re switching from another payment method, your standing charge adjustment will vary**.
