Payment by Credit Card

The method of payment by credit card has been upgraded during January 2015 to allow overseas customers to pay Spark bills directly on-line at any time. The system previously required the customer to enter a phone number which was cross checked against the account number, but couldn't be used by overseas customers who didn't have a local phone number. The change to the system allows the customer to enter a line number which appears on the invoice as a 9 digit number starting with "16". It is in the form 16xx-yyyyy, and can be found in the invoice under the heading "Rental & Activity" which is usually on page 3 of the invoice.
