How to enroll in AutoPay

AutoPay is the most convenient way to ensure your bill is paid on time, every time. There are three easy ways to set it up — on the My CenturyLink website, in the app, or by mailing a paper form.

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.

Enroll in AutoPay on the My CenturyLink website

It's easy to enroll online because your information is already stored in My CenturyLink, so there's no need for you to find and enter your account number. 

When you sign in to My CenturyLink, your home screen will show your current balance and a button to make a payment, as shown below.

1. Click on Billing from the top menu.


2. Scroll to the bottom of the Billing page until you get to Billing Settings. There you'll see a link to set up AutoPay.

3. Enter your payment details on the AutoPay Details screen. This screen opens to the banking account option. You can select a credit or debit card if you prefer. There is no fee for payments by credit/debit card on AutoPay.


Be sure to click the box to agree to the terms and conditions, then click Next to complete the set-up.

There are two options to enroll in AutoPay using a paper form:

  1. Download the AutoPay enrollment form. Print the PDF form below, fill in the blanks, and mail it to us. (You'll need to provide your CenturyLink account number.)

  2. Complete the form on the back of your bill remittance slip. On the back of the page 1 of your CenturyLink bill, you'll find an AutoPay Authorization section. Fill in the requested information and mail it in along with your payment.

Payment methods accepted for AutoPay

You can use these forms of payment with AutoPay:

  • Checking account
  • Savings account
  • Credit card (VISA, MasterCard or Discover)
  • Debit card
  • Money market account (in some areas)

You can enter one payment option today and update it at any time in the future.

When will AutoPay take effect?

AutoPay will take effect on the next billing cycle after you enroll. You should continue to pay your bill as before until you receive confirmation that AutoPay is active. You will know it is active when you see "You are signed up for AutoPay" in My CenturyLink or on the app, or you see "Thank you for using our automatic payment system" on your bill.

What is your payment date with AutoPay?

Your AutoPay payment will occur 18 days after your bill date. At this time, there is no option to change your payment date. The "bill date" is the date your bill is issued, not the due date. You can find this bill date on the first page of your bill.
