How to Pay Wells Fargo Credit Cards Online

Like many financial institutions, Wells Fargo provides a few options for paying your credit card bill online. You can set up automatic recurring payments, make a one-time payment from an account at any bank or use the Wells Fargo bill pay feature to pay your bill from a Wells Fargo checking account.

Recurring Payments

If you generally make the same type of credit card payment every month, paying either the minimum due, the complete balance or a certain amount of money, it might be useful to set up recurring bill payments. You can do this through the Wells Fargo website, and the bank will automatically pay your bill when it comes due every month, using a checking or savings account of your choice at Wells Fargo or at any other bank. You can enroll online or, if you prefer, call to request a paper enrollment form. There's no charge for this service.

One-Time Online Transfers

If you only want to pay online once, or you vary the amount you pay from month to month, you can pay using individual online transfers. Make a payment that will be credited to your account on the same day it's made or schedule one in advance, using the Wells Fargo website. You can make the payment from a Wells Fargo account or a checking or savings account at any other institution where you have money. There's no charge for the service.

As with paying by a traditional paper check, if you make individual transfers every month you'll have to remember to pay your bill on time each month, so you might want to set a calendar reminder or otherwise make a note of when your payment to Wells Fargo is due.

Wells Fargo Bill Pay

If you have a Wells Fargo checking account and a Wells Fargo credit card, you can use the checking account's online bill pay feature to pay your credit card bill. You can either make a one-time payment this way, similar to writing a check to Wells Fargo, or you can set up recurring payments to pay your bill every month.

You can also receive automatic notifications of when your bill is due so that you can make sure you're paying the right amount. Online bill pay is accessible from Wells Fargo's website or its mobile app. There's no charge for the service. You can also pay other bills through the Wells Fargo bill pay system, which enables you to manage your money in one digital place.
