Pay-as-you-Go (PAYG)

The minimum amount of credits PAYG customers can purchase is 2.

The VPIS no longer offers PAYG credits without an Auto Top Up in place. 

On a PAYG subscription, your enquiry is charged 1 credit when made in hours, and 2 credits when made out of hours (our hours are 8am – 8pm Mon-Friday, excl. bank holidays).

Current PAYG Customers must have a minimum of 1 credit at all times on their account to maintain their VPIS membership. If your account balance falls to less than 1 credit, your membership automatically lapses and you will need to purchase further credits.

VPIS credits are valid for a period of 2 years.

Online payments

PAYG customers are able to purchase credits online using a credit or debit card, facilitated by RBS WorldPay™.

Auto Top Up (10% discount on credit prices)

Practices purchasing credits with a debit or credit card may opt for a ‘recurring transaction’ (i.e. Auto Top Up) which gives you a 10% discount on credit prices. Each time your credit balance falls to zero, your account will be automatically credited with your chosen number of credits and payment taken from your assigned credit or debit card.

Alternative payment methods

You can still choose to pay by cheque or by BACS, although you cannot opt for the Auto Top Up prices if you are paying by either of these methods, and are therefore not eligible for the 10% discount. Details required for these payment methods are provided during your checkout process.
