Although not as large as its competitors Visa or MasterCard, Discover is still a major credit card issuer. For those who have received Discover credit cards directly through the company itself, there are a number of ways you can make a payment on your account.
Option 1: Pay Your Discover Card Bill at a Sears
You can make a payment in person at various Sears locations around the country. However, as not all of them will accept this payment, you should call the store you are planning to visit beforehand to ensure that they will take a Discover Card bill payment. To find a Sears store near you, visit the Sears store locator.
It should also be noted that the only way they will accept your payment on the Discover Card at a Sears if by using a personal check.
Option 2: Online Discover Card Payments
To make an online payment for the balance on the account of your Discover credit card, you will first have to go through an online account creation process, which can be handled by going to the Discover registration page.
On the registration page, you will be asked to enter information about your credit card through the company as well as your personal information to ensure you are the accountholder. After you have set up your login credentials, you may make a payment online by following these steps:
- Navigate to the www.discover.com bill pay page

- Click the orange “Log In” button
- Go to the payments section of the Discover Card site
- Select an amount that you would like to pay toward your card balance
- Input your billing information when prompted

Option 3: Discover Card Pay by Phone
If you would like to make a payment on your Discover credit card over the phone, the company allows for that as well. To reach them for this type of payment, you can reach their system by dialing (800) 347-2683 (800-DISCOVER). This number can be called 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, making it a good option for after-hours payments for those who do not wish to use the online payment method.
