Other ways to pay

If you aren't registered for Smart Pay, you can still top-up over the phone, it’ll just takes a little longer. Simply contact us on our automated service by calling: 0333 313 9170.
There might be a 10 minute delay while we transfer the credit to your meter, but it should be there by the time you get home from the shops or grab a cuppa.
Note down your unique top up codes and take them to your nearest PayPoint location – you’ll find it in a corner shop, supermarket or garage near you.
If you need help to find your nearest PayPoint visit www.paypoint.com and pop in your postcode.
The cashier will be able to use your unique top up code to add credit to your meter – anything up to £100 per meter.
Keep track of your spend
On your smart in-home display unit, you can use the History button on the Transactions screen to view your current balance and recent top-up activity, to help keep track of how much you’ve spent and what’s remaining.
How to access your emergency credit
When your pre-payment credit gets low, your IHD will make a noise to alert you.
You’ll have the option to access £5 of emergency credit per fuel to keep things running until you can get topped up.
To access it from your IHD, simply hit the E-Credit button on the Low Credit screen. Once you do, you’ll see the credit start to count down, and this is your cue to run out to your local PayPoint and get topped up! It's just as easy to access directly from your meter, just press 7 on your meters keypad and follow the onscreen instructions.
If you don’t top up before the emergency credit runs out, you’ll be cut off and have to reconnect when you do top up again. Remember that you’ll need to repay the emergency credit you’ve used when you top back up too.
