Does British Gas offer payment plans?

What happens if I miss a British Gas payment?

If your payment fails for a second time, we’ll have to cancel your Direct Debit and send you a bill instead. And you’ll need to pay this in full within 14 days. From then on, we’ll go back to sending you bills for the energy you use on a monthly or quarterly basis.

How does British Gas pay monthly work?
