Does Verizon Accept PayPal In 2024?

Verizon doesn’t accept PayPal as a method of payment directly to pay your phone bill, but if you have a PayPal debit or credit card, you can use it as of 2024. The company does have several other methods of payment available for customers, including paying with your checking account or other debit and credit cards.

If so, read on to learn everything I’ve found out!

Can You Pay with PayPal on Verizon?

Verizon doesn’t accept PayPal as a method of payment directly, which means you cannot use your PayPal balance to pay your Verizon bill.

Can You Pay Verizon with a PayPal Credit Card?

If you have a PayPal credit or debit card, you can pay your Verizon bill online, in-store, and even over the phone.

As well, you can pay if you have a PayPal Prepaid card, as long as you have an active PayPal account with a balance high enough on the card to pay your Verizon bill.

Furthermore, the PayPal credit card and debit card will work just as easily as any traditional debit or credit card, as it’s powered by MasterCard.

What Payment Methods Does Verizon Accept?

Verizon accepts multiple methods of payment, both online and through the My Verizon app, including the following:

  • Verizon gift card
  • Verizon Visa Card
  • 2 checking accounts
  • STAR
  • Visa
  • MasterCard
  • Discover
  • American Express
  • NYCE

Additionally, you also can pay your phone bill with a credit or debit card using Verizon customer service, but with this method, you’ll be charged an extra $10 fee.

Can You Pay Your Verizon Bill with a Money Order?

A money order is accepted as payment if you’re paying your Verizon bill through the mail.

Does Verizon Accept Checks?

A physical check is only accepted if you’re paying your Verizon bill through the mail or at some authorized Verizon locations.

Both regular checks and certified checks are accepted by Verizon, although you cannot use a third-party check, regardless of the situation.

However, you can pay with up to two checking accounts through the website and app, which will require both your routing number and checking account number.

Does Verizon Have Auto Pay?

Verizon does have an auto-pay program, which will take the money directly out of your checking account, debit card, or credit card automatically so you don’t have to worry about it!

Additionally, if you set up automatic payment and use paperless billing, you can get up to a $10 discount on your phone bill for each line you have on your plan.

If you pay with any other credit card besides the Verizon Visa card, you are not eligible for the discount.

Rather, the $10 discount is also only eligible for certain Verizon plans, including the following:

However, you can still get a $5 discount for each phone line if you have other phone plans, including the following:

  • Beyond Unlimited
  • Above Unlimited
  • Go Unlimited
  • 5GB Single Phone Plan

You can set up the automatic payment feature by going to My Verizon and filling out the information, and you’ll receive communication about when your payment is due afterward.
