Not sure if your meter is a Smart prepayment version?
Well, if you top up your energy instead of paying by monthly Direct Debit, you've got a prepayment meter. And if it has an IHD (In-Home Display), it's probably a Smart Meter.
If you're on traditional Pay As You Go (PAYG) with an old dumb meter, but you've got a bank card and you'd like to know more about changing to a Smart Meter, look through this section to see if it would suit you. You can also discover the differences between traditional PAYG and smarter PAYG .
PAYG makes it easy to top up your gas and electricity meters whenever you want, however you like. You can do it by phone (mobile or landline), by text, online or through our OVO Apps.
You could also set up automatic payments from your card to top up your energy credit on the same day each month. Or make a payment whenever your credit falls to a given level, so you're never in danger of running out of gas or electricity.
PAYG lets you do plenty of other things too, like using one of our OVO Apps to check how long it is before you next need to top up - or setting text or email alerts if your credit is running low.
