Paying your AT&T bill Online
To pay your AT&T wireless, phone, or U-verse bill electronically go to the AT&T website and login to your “myAT&T” account. From the overview page, you will see a summary of what you owe along side of a Make a Payment button. Below the Make a Payment button, you will also see a link that will enable you to sign up for AutoPay services.
To make a one time, single payment, click on the Make a Payment button, which will bring you to a new page where you can enter the amount that you want your payment to be, indicate which payment method you wish to use (checking/savings account or credit/debit card), and when you want the payment to arrive (Pay Now or Schedule a Payment for a future date).
If you are electing to make your electronic payment from a bank account, clicking the next button takes you to a screen where you enter your routing transit number. Click here for information on how to identify your routing/transit number.
If you choose to pay via credit or debit card, you will instead be presented with a screen to enter your credit card number, the CVV number associated with the credit card (located on the back of the card for Visa and Mastercard, and on the front of the card for American Express), the card expiration date, and the card billing zip code.
AT&T has a pretty nifty feature that I have not seen other billers offer before. There is a link on the Make a Payment page called split this payment that allows you to pay a portion of your balance via checking account, and to put the remainder of your payment on a credit card. Thus, you are able to split your payment across two different payment methods. I think that's pretty creative of them and a nice option from a customer perspective.
Whether you pay by checking account or credit card, you can create a payment profile name if you want AT&T to store your payment account information so that you only have to enter this information one time and have it available in the future when you want to make additional electronic payments. However, this feature is optional, and you are not required to do so.
The next screen that you will see will be a payment confirmation screen, and from here you simply click the Submit button to complete your electronic payment instruction.
If you wish to sign up for Autopay services, you need to provide the same basic account information for your bank account or for your credit/debit card. AT&T will provide you with a terms and conditions page that outlines the autopay rules and process (shown below).
I authorize my bank to make automatic monthly bill payments to AT&T by debiting my bank account. I understand the following: I remain in complete control of my payments; I will receive a statement of charges at least 10 days before the due date; should I dispute any portion of the statement, I must notify AT&T at least three days prior to the due date; variations in usage, service, taxes, and/or fees affect the monthly service charge and balance due; if I decide to cancel authorization of Automatic Bank Account Debit, I must notify AT&T at www.att.com or by dialing 1-800-331-0500 in the United States, 1-787-397-5000 if I am in Puerto Rico, or by dialing 611 from my wireless phone if I have wireless services or 1-800-288-2020 if I have U-verse service or use www.att.com/econtactus/ if I have home phone/Internet service; should my bank reject the automatic payment, AT&T may charge a return fee; confirmation of enrollment can take up to one billing cycle. I will continue to submit payments as usual to AT&T until confirmation of my Automatic Bank Account Debit enrollment appears on my monthly statement.
Once you have authorized the Autopay service, AT&T will automatically electronically debit your bank account or charge your credit card account monthly for the amount that you owe on your account.
