When is my first payment?

Your first payment will be taken on the date you switch to Bulb, 21 days after you signed up. And this will be your payment date going forward.

After your first payment, you can change your payment date in your Bulb Account through the the ‘Payment Settings’ button in ‘Payments & statements’.

Why do we take payments in advance?
Upfront payments let us be smarter when buying your energy, so we can pass more savings on to our members.

Once you’ve switched to Bulb, we’ll take monthly payments from your bank account which will build up credit in your Bulb Account. Every month we’ll use this credit to pay for the energy you’ve used.

By doing this we’re able to keep your payment amount the same throughout the year, meaning there are no surprise bills in the colder months.
