Credit or debit card

Pay your bill online, 24 hours a day. We accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express.
(For debit cards, check that the issuer of the card allows payments.) All charges are in NZD.

One-off payments from a credit or debit card will incur a surcharge of up to 3% depending on your card type. This fee covers administration and charges incurred by Watercare to accept card payments. At the payment confirmation page, the actual fee will be calculated and disclosed when your card details are entered. You will then be provided an option to complete or cancel your payment. If you proceed, a separate transaction will appear on your credit or debit account with the narration “Watercare Surcharge”. Alternatively, we have other payment options below that do not incur a fee.
