You have to pay your bills in The Sims 4 or lose access to water and power. It may be quite distressing if you can't figure out how to pay bills. Thankfully, it's just a few quick clicks away.
Paying bills - Sims 4 guide
Paying your bills in The Sims 4 is really easy. Your Sim will need to receive their bill before you can pay them. You can't pay bills early. When you get the notification (once per week in-game time), choose to either go to the cell phone, the mailbox, or the computer.
- When paying for bills through the mailbox, click on the mailbox and select Pay Bills.
- If you use the cell phone to pay bills, look under the home-shaped icon for Pay Bills.
- If you are using your Sim's computer to pay the bills, click for more options until you find Pay Bills.
