Direct Debit is the simplest and most convenient way for you to pay regular and occasional bills. Some bills are one-offs: you pay them and then they don’t bother you anymore.
But lots, like your phone contract or energy bills, are repeated every month (or every few months). The problem is that remembering to send the money each time is inconvenient, and forgetting might get you into financial trouble.
Instead, you can set up a Direct Debit. See how to enable Direct Debits for your Pockit account. This means you’ll be able to use your Pockit account to send money automatically to whoever you want, whenever you want, with no need to worry about forgetting to pay someone on time.
To set up a Direct Debit with the company you want to pay — share your Pockit account number and sort code.

Not everything. For some kinds of payment, Direct Debit might not be the best option.Paying by Direct Debit for some things can be a bad move. Here’s when you should avoid Direct Debit:
Insurance. When you pay for insurance each month, instead of all at once, you’re usually charged interest (an extra amount on top of the actual cost). That can add up fast!
Buying your phone. Buy it in one payment and you could save money.
Amazon Prime. Like with some phones, it’s cheaper to pay all at once if you can afford it. This will save you £16.88 each year.
Car and vehicle tax. Pay for the full year for the cheapest price. There’s a 5% surcharge if you pay in monthly or 6-monthly instalments. However you can still set up a Direct Debit for a 12-month payment to make sure you don’t forget. All the different costs are here.
Travel and sport season tickets. You may be able to save money by paying up front for your train or stadium seat.
