How does AutoPay work?
- The AutoPay program permits SMECO to deduct money from an account at your financial institution or your Visa, MasterCard, or Discover credit or debit card to pay your monthly electric bill.
- Each month you will receive a message on your bill advising you of the date the payment will be withdrawn from your bank or charged against your credit card and the amount of the payment.
- If you should need to temporarily suspend your AutoPay, just contact SMECO four working days prior to the payment date on your bill. You can then pay by cash or check. You can also elect to discontinue your participation in the program by contacting SMECO at 1-888-440-3311.
- All SMECO customers with accounts in good standing are eligible to join the program.
- If your payment is declined twice in 12 months, you will be dropped from the AutoPay program and you may be charged a processing fee. To avoid being dropped, contact SMECO whenever your credit card expires, when a new card is issued, or when your credit card or bank account is closed.
