How much should I pay towards my bill?

To determine the amount of your automatic payments, check the regular payments calculator. You can check how much your payments should be for weekly, fortnightly, monthly or quarterly options based on your usage.

What happens if my payments don't match my bill?

If your payments are higher than your bill, the money you overpaid will remain on your account as a credit which you can use for future bills. You can also request a credit refund. If your payments don’t cover your full bill, we will bill you for the remaining amount.

What other options do I have to make automatic payments?
