You can pay your Lumen invoice in Control Center using a credit card: we accept Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. We charge a convenience fee (for each account) to pay with a credit or debit card. You can avoid this fee if you pay by bank account. Having trouble making a payment? Learn how to troubleshoot bill-payment problems.

Note: You can make payments in Control Center in U.S. dollars (USD) only. For payments in other currencies, please pay by mail or by calling 877-453-8353, option 2, then 3.

Control Center shows a list of invoices for active accounts. (To view all accounts, select All Accounts from the Active Accounts list.)
Search for the account(s) you want to work with by doing one of the following:
Scroll through the list of accounts. If you have more than 20 accounts, use the arrows at the bottom of the page to move between pages.
Sort your accounts using the column headings (e.g., Account Number). You can toggle between descending and ascending order using the arrows to the right of the column heading.
Filter your accounts by account group by selecting an option from the All Account Groups list.
Search for a specific account (by invoice number, account number, etc.) using the Search field.
Do one of the following:
To pay a single invoice, click Pay (in the Actions column) on the row for the account.
To pay multiple invoices at once, click the checkbox on the row for the accounts, then click Pay Invoices.
For each account you selected verify the amount you want to pay. By default, the amount due is shown in the Payment Amount column. To change it, type a different amount in the field. (To remove an account from the payment, click the icon on the row for the account.)
Do one of the following:
To pay using a new card, select Credit or Debit Account from the Method of Payment list, then continue with the next step.
To pay a saved card, select the account you'd like to use from the Method of Payment list, then skip to step 12.
In the Card Number field, type your credit card number.
In the Expiration Date field, select the month and year your credit card expires.
In the Zip Code field, type the billing address of your credit card.
If you want to save the card for future use, select the Save this payment method checkbox.
Click the I agree to these Speedpay Terms and Conditions checkbox.
Verify that the information you entered is correct, then click Submit Payment. (If the information is not correct, click the Back link and make your corrections.)
Review and keep the confirmation information that appears on the screen.
