One of the conveniences of modern life is the ability to pay your bills through the Internet. Instead of spending time and effort to go to a bills payment center, you can just use your computer or mobile phone to settle your dues. If you’re a PLDT subscriber, for example, you can take advantage of Internet-based payment facilities to pay your PLDT bills online.
If you’re a busy person, or simply someone who can’t be bothered to go outside the house, you can pay your PLDT bills online instead of heading to a payment outlet. PLDT offers several ways to pay your bills through the Internet, such as through the PLDT website or the mobile app. You can even use digital wallets like GCash and PayMaya to your PLDT bills.
By paying your PLDT bills online, you not only save your time and energy, you also help save the environment by reducing paper waste. In fact, PLDT already has implemented paperless billing for most of its customers to help in conservation efforts. You can do the same by switching to online payments.
So without further ado, here are the PLDT online payment options that are available to subscribers.
