At AGL, we like to make things easy. So we’re pleased to offer our customers a monthly billing option. It gives you more control over when and how you receive your energy bills.

With monthly billing, you can get your energy bills monthly instead of quarterly. What's more, you can:

  • select the day of the month your bills will be issued#
  • have regular, smaller, easier to manage payments
  • enter your own meter reads.~

How to set up monthly billing

It's easy to get started. Simply log in to My Account (or, register now if you haven't logged in before). Then, go to monthly billing and follow the prompts. You could also access your bill straight from your email inbox and avoid paper bill fees simply by switching to eBilling in My Account.

What is a payment processing fee?

If you pay your energy bills using a credit card, or any card that uses a credit card payment facility, AGL is charged a merchant services fee by your financial institution. This will appear on your next bill as 'payment processing fee'. You can view the Payment Processing Fee amount in your relevant state's Fee Schedule.

There are other methods for paying your energy bills with AGL that won't incur a payment processing fee, which you can learn about here.
