The Sims 4, EA

Depending on what kind of The Sims 4 player you are, the game’s connection to real life can be so different. If you take it as seriously as in real life, this life simulation will confront you with issues such as not being late for work and tracking bills. This is exactly our topic today: how to pay bills in The Sims 4?

The bill payment process, which reminds you that you are an adult every month, is one of the most annoying things in real life. If you do not use the infinite money cheat, you will experience the same thing in The Sims 4. It’s something you have to learn to get on with your life there though.

If you’re a new The Sims 4 player or don’t remember how to pay the bills, this guide is for you. You can pay your bills in The Sims 4 by following the steps below.

The Sims 4: How to Pay Bills

Bills that you could only pay from the mailbox in front of your house in previous Sims games will no longer bother you so much. Because while the mailbox is still an option, it’s not the only option.

With the updates coming to the game, you can now pay your bills in modern ways as they should be. Get ready to use the computers and phones.

How to Pay Bills Using Computer or Phone

Paying your bills in The Sims 4 with your computer or phone is simpler than you think. Start using one of these two devices with your character. On the main screen of the devices, you will see an option where the total invoice amount is written.

If you have enough Simoleons, you can choose this option to pay all your bills. You are comfortable until the next payment period.

How to Pay Bills Using the Mailbox

The classic method you will remember from previous Sims games is to pay via mailbox. To do this, go to the mailbox in front of your house and receive the invoices, if any. You can do this with both adult and child characters.

But you need your adult character to pay the bills. Click on the bills you brought into your home and make the payment if you have enough money. If you’re making enough money by commuting, bills shouldn’t be too big of a problem. But what if you don’t pay the bills in The Sims 4?

What Happens If You Don’t Pay Bills in The Sims 4

If you don’t pay your bills, you will face dire consequences, just like in real life. After 48 hours, the electricity in your house will be cut off. If you do not pay the bills for the next 48 hours, your water service will be cut off this time.

Of course, the only effect of bills on the game is not limited to these. Keep in mind that not only your home, but all of your businesses will be affected by this outage. You better try to keep your economy strong in The Sims 4 from the beginning. Thus, you can get away from real life for a bit and have more fun hours.
