How do I change the date of my direct debit? I am a new customer and my DD falls on a date that’s not good for me.

Great question, of course you can change your Direct Debit date. The easiest way to do this is via your online account or OVO app (download for Android or iOS). 


Check out the ‘Payments’ page - you can change your payment date by clicking on the ‘Change Direct Debit date’ button,


Exact appearance may vary


If the payment is due in the next 5 days, the change won’t apply until next month.

If you need to change the date of your first payment, you may not have access to your online account yet to complete this yourself, in which case reach out to our Support Team who’ll be able to get this updated.

You can find out more about Direct Debits on our FAQs.

Having seen the thread about changing DD dates, I've emailed Ovo to request this. As it's not possible to do this via the website or the app, I hopefully won't lose my online-only discount for doing so ...
I'm trying to edit the day my Ddebit will come out. I get online discount so can't call the call centre which is what the website tells me I will have to do. The app doesn't seem to work at all, for anything, possible because OVO haven't yet taken over supply. Any suggestions? Really don't want to have that much money coming out of my account so long after payday.

Hey @Hayley w - I've moved your comment onto this topic. More information on how to do this above!

I have followed the instructions on how to change my direct debit date as given to other forum members but am unable to find any way of doing this under Payments/Refunds etc. There must be a way to do this. Can you help?
