Pay your Virgin Media or Virgin Mobile bill
If you're looking to pay your bill, you can choose from making a one-off payment, signing in to Your Account, setting up a Direct Debit, and more.
Find out what you can do if a payment you’ve made isn’t showing on your bill:
If a payment isn’t showing, it might just be that it hasn’t cleared yet. Check out our help article about making a payment for more information about process times.
If your payment still isn’t showing after the usual processing time, then contact us and we’ll get it sorted.
To help us search for your payment, you’ll need to provide us with the following details:
You also need to provide a few extra details, depending on your payment type:
Note: If the payment wasn’t made to a Virgin Media bank account, you’ll need to chat to your bank.
If your payment is late, we may need to charge you a late payment fee of £7.50.
You might also find your Virgin Media services restricted. This means your broadband speed may be slowed, or you might be restricted to the Freeview channels only. If you have our home phone service, you may only be able to receive calls (but you’ll still be able to make calls to the emergency services).
If we do need to put in restrictions, we’ll try to contact you about what you need to pay to get your full service back. If we’re able to get hold of you, and receive no payment, we may have to disconnect your services completely.
If you’re not making any regular payments to us, unfortunately we may place your debt with a debt collection agency – but we’ll always let you know in writing before we do this.
If your payment is late, you may no longer be able to make calls and send SMS, or use your data. However, you’ll still be able to receive calls and texts, and make calls to emergency services.
If we do need to restrict your services, we’ll try to contact you about the next steps. If we can’t get hold of you, and don’t receive a payment, we may need to disconnect your mobile services completely.
If we’re still unable to get payment from you after this, unfortunately your debt may be passed to a debt collection agency – but we’ll always let you know in writing before we do this.
