Full Answer

Some companies have online payment websites that differ from their standard websites. Check your billing statement to see where to make a payment online. If you are not able to find the online payment web address on the billing statement, call the phone number on the credit card and ask a customer service representative for the web address.

You need to enter your credit card and banking information the first time making an online payment. You also need to create a username and password so you can log in securely to make payments. Be sure to pick a password that is difficult for others to guess. Try to memorize the password, instead of writing it down, so there is no chance it can become compromised.

There should be a link on the website that says Pay Online, Make a Payment or something similar. Click the link, and enter the required personal information. Once the information has been entered and the payment date has been chosen, confirm the payment. You should receive a confirmation number and an email receipt after the payment goes through.
