How to update AutoPay payment information

Learn how to make changes to your AutoPay payment method on the My CenturyLink website or in the app.

You can add a new payment method to replace an old one, update the expiration date on an existing card, or change a bank account number.

These kinds of changes shouldn't impact your automatic billing. Keep an eye on your bill, and if anything looks unusual, contact us.

ACI Processing Charge

A $3.00 ACI Processing Charge will be included on AutoPay and Prepaid credit or debit card payments on or after June 14, 2024. Use bank account transfer to avoid this charge.

Card expired?

If your credit card expired recently, your automatic payment may be rejected. To confirm it went through, sign in to My CenturyLink and look at your bill. If you see an outstanding balance, you can make a one-time payment to take care of it. As long as you update your payment information in My CenturyLink, the next automatic payment should go through normally.

How do I know the change worked?

Updating your AutoPay information should not impact your bill payment cycle. Your payments should go through as usual. However, if you want to double-check that the change took effect, you can do two things:


  • Check back in My CenturyLink after a few days to look for the update to your AutoPay payment method.

  • Monitor your bill in the next billing cycle to make sure the payment goes through on time. If not, you can make a one-time payment to ensure your account is up to date.
