How to Make a Verizon Payment

By Jaime Swanson

To ensure uninterrupted service with Verizon, you will want to make sure you pay your bills on time. Verizon offers many ways to get your payment to them, including mail, online, in person, over the phone or by using the My Verizon app on your smart phone. With so many ways to get your payment taken care of, you should be able to find one that fits easily into your lifestyle.

Pay by Mail

Step 1

Locate your bill and find your balance. If you still receive paper copies of your bill by mail, keep these stored in a safe place so you don't forget to make your payment.

Step 2

Fill out the bill with how much you intend to pay, and write a check for the intended amount.

Step 3

Place the bill and check in the provided envelope and seal it. Fill out your return address, stamp the envelope and drop it in a mailbox.

Pay in Person

Step 1

Visit your favored Verizon Wireless store and go directly to the customer service counter. If the sales representatives on the floor ask you to wait, give them your name and spend some time browsing throughout the store.

Step 2

Tell the customer service agent why you're there, and give them your account number. If you don't have your account number, the agent should be able to find it on his computer, but you will need to verify you are the owner of the account.

Step 3

Pay the agent the amount you wish to put toward your Verizon account. You can pay with either cash, check or credit card at Verizon Wireless stores.

Pay Over the Phone

Step 1

Call Verizon Wireless' customer service hot line. The phone tree you reach should give you an option to check your account balance. Press the number associated with this option, listen to your balance and agree to make a payment when asked if you would like to do so.

Step 2

Enter your credit card information. To make a payment over the phone, you are required to pay by credit card.

Step 3

Verify your information is correct and wait for confirmation Verizon has received your payment.

Pay Online

Step 1

Visit Verizon's website. If you have registered online with Verizon in the past, click on "My Verizon" and sign in to your account. If you are new to Verizon, you will be asked to register with the website to create your My Verizon account.

Step 2

Click "Pay Bill," enter the amount you wish to pay and select your payment method -- saved account, checking account or ATM, debit or credit card. Click "Next."

Step 3

Verify your payment and agree to the terms and limits Verizon sets in front of you.

Pay by Smart Phone App

Step 1

Open your "My Verizon Mobile" app in the menu section of your smart phone.

Step 2

Tap "My Bill" and review the amount you owe.

Step 3

Tap "Make Payment" and follow the screens asking you how you wish to pay -- bank account or credit, ATM or debit card -- and verify your payment request.
