Globug are a retail brand that focus on making electricity easier to manage, so Kiwis can keep on top of their payments. Instead of paying monthly for your electricity bills, you can pay for your electricity as you go. This ‘prepaid’ payment system allows you to manage your monthly power costs much easier.
You can top up through the Globug app, through your account on Globug’s website using your debit or credit card, or through authorised retailers around New Zealand. It’s really that simple! The Globug app functions like a pocket-sized smart meter that you can check whenever you please. It shows you your current balance, top up options, estimates of how much power is remaining, and how much you’re spending on power.

Electricity with Globug NZ: How It Works - Rates, Price Per Kwh
After you’ve created an account online, this is the first question that Globug will ask you. It’s a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’ on whether you are medically dependent or not, so that they can put you in the Medical Dependency Register. Ideally, if you’re medically dependent, you should have someone with you who’s not medically dependent and who can help manage your electricity bills. From there, Globug will help you get a connection with their sister company, Mercury.
Moving or switching
This is the next question they’ll ask you, so that they can get an idea about your personal circumstances. They’ll ask if you are a new customer who wants to join Globug NZ, or if you’re someone who wants to join Globug and leave your current provider.
Your personal information
Once you’ve confirmed your personal situation, they’ll ask for your personal details such as your name, current address, birthdate, and the like. They’ll also confirm if you have a passport and a driver’s license, and if the details match the information you’ve provided.
Lastly, they’ll ask about your personal property, such as your household. This lets them know about the facilities in your home, who you live with, how long have you been living in the current address, and the like. Once you’ve provided them with this information, you’ll be asked for a final confirmation of your application.
