Verizon is one of the largest telecommunication networks in the USA, offering a wide range of wireless services including its popular 4G LTE mobile network covering 99% of the USA population.

If you have a contract with Verizon then you can either set up a standing order whereby an automatic deduction is made for your monthly bill, or you can pay your bill as and when it comes around.

This article is going to explore the various ways you can make payment at Verizon to pay or Verizon Wireless/Mobile bill, including whether you can use PayPal.


Can I Pay My Verizon Bill With PayPal?

We love the convenience of PayPal so we looked into this question for you.

Unfortunately, it seems that there is no easy way to use PayPal to pay your bill with Verizon.

For example, we didn’t find a way to link your PayPal account to your Verizon account so a standing order could be set up.

We also couldn’t find an easy way to simply transfer money from PayPal to your Verizon account.

However, if you have a PayPal debit or credit card then this should work as PayPal cards are MasterCards and Verizon does accept them.

If you have a PayPal MasterCard, then simply set up a standing order with that card or make recurring payments with that card each month when your bill comes around.

Another option is to simply transfer money from your PayPal account into


Credit Cards and Debit Cards Accepted at Verizon

One of the most popular ways to pay your Verizon bill is to just use your credit or debit card.

You can use up to two checking accounts through the Verizon App to set up a standing order or to pay your bill when it comes around.

Through the app you can also set up to 6 credit, debit or ATM cards. Verizon accepts all of them major credit and debit card providers such as:

  • Visa
  • MasterCard
  • Discover
  • PULSE
  • NYCE
  • STAR

Does Verizon Accept Amex (American Express)?

Verizon does accept American Express or Amex so you should have no problem setting up a standing order or making payments each month with your American Express card.


Does Verizon Sell and Accept Gift Cards?

Verizon does sell and accept gift cards which you can purchase from the Verizon Store.


Other Ways To Pay Your Verizon Wireless or Other Bill

Verizon offers many different ways to pay, so you shouldn’t find it difficult to set up a standing order to make a payment each month.

Failing to pay bills can wreak havoc on your credit history and you do not want to be in a position where you need to repair your credit score, which can be both timely and expensive.

Here’s some ways in which you can pay your Verizon bill:

  • Credit or Debit Card (as above) using either a standing order, one time payment through the digital assistant tool, the app on Verizon.com or using their automated phone number (800) 922-0204
  • Cash – You can pay your bill using cash at Verizon stores. Find your local Verizon store here.
  • Check or Money Order – You can use this payment method by mailing your check or money order to your local Verizon mailing address. Find your nearest mailing address here.

Does Verizon Accept Checks and Money Orders?

Verizon does accept checks and money orders.

If you want to pay by check or money order then look here to find the address local to you to send it to.

You should note that if your check bounces then you are likely to be charged a fee by Verizon and also a late payment fee if your bill isn’t paid on time, which can also affect your credit score.


What Happens If I Pay My Verizon Bill Late?

If you are late in paying your Verizon bill, then they can charge you a fee whichever is the greater of these two:

  • 1.5% per month on your unpaid balance
  • A flat $5 per month fee

If you can’t pay your bill then it’s worth reaching out to Verizon to explain the situation.

You can then set up a promise to pay or schedule a payment for when you have money to make the payment.


Final Thoughts

While Verizon doesn’t offer an easy PayPal solution, they still offer an impressive array of payment options, whether that be on your mobile device, on desktop, by phone or even by mail.

You can pay with your credit or debit card, with cash, with a check and even with a money order, so there are still plenty of payment options to choose from.

As above, it’s super important that you make timely repayments to avoid late payment fees and to make sure you don’t leave a blemish on your credit report which can make securing lines of credit (loans, mortgages etc…) much more difficult down the line.
