Ways to Pay

We’ve made it as convenient and easy as possible for both residential and business customers to pay their energy bills; take a look below and see which way best meets your needs.

Auto Pay automatically withdraws your payments from your checking or savings account, or charges your debit or credit card each month. Business customers can participate in Auto Pay using their checking or savings account. Set it and forget it!

Review and Pay

If you want full control over how much, when, and how to pay your bill, this is the option for you. Review & Pay gives you the freedom to pay in full or make a partial payment, pay now or schedule a payment for later, and use a different or new payment method if you like.*

Guest Pay

For customers who choose not to register for an online account (or who are unable to sign in), or for those who might be paying someone else’s bill, Guest Pay allows them to make a payment online without signing in. You’ll need to have the Avista account number and last four digits of the primary customer’s phone number on hand.*

No online account is required!

Fee? Free for residential customers; $10 for business customers.**

Schedule an online payment

Did you know you can schedule up to three payments in advance of your due date (if your account is current)? If you need to split up your bill in order to pay it, it’s fine by us. You can schedule payments from within the Review & Pay payment process, or by visiting Scheduled Payments.
