To make an online Discover credit card payment, log in to the official website's Account Center, click on Make a Payment, and then enter the payment information. There is no charge for paying online, and cardholders can store up to eight bank accounts from which they can make payments.
Discover cardholders can use the Account Management panel at the official Discover.com website to schedule future payments to ensure the due date isn't missed. Up to two payments can be made using this panel as long as the payments are made from different bank accounts. Payments made before 5 p.m. are posted on the same day, and if cardholders need to edit or cancel payments, they can do so before 5 p.m. Cardholders may also pay their Discover credit card bills by calling 1-800-DISCOVER.
Cardholders can also use the Account Panel to view account balances and statements. Text and email alerts can be set up that inform cardholders of recent account activity in real time, and the website also provides tools that help cardholders analyze spending habits and track purchase categories. A paydown planner allows cardholders to make a plan for paying down their balances within certain time frames. This information can also be accessed using the Discover mobile app for smartphones and tablets.
