3 Easy Ways to Pay for Your PLDT Bill

PLDT Home’s website was down for maintenance so I had to find other ways to pay my bills. Of course I knew there were other ways to settle my dues but since I was so used to paying directly using the official PLDT Home website, I had to do a little bit of research on how I can easily pay my bills without having to download additional mobile apps.

Tita vs. Tech? I definitely nailed it!

This experience was very recent so I wanted to share just in case some of you didn’t know these payment channels.

How can I check my bill?

PLDT Home sends your billing subscription monthly to your registered e-mail address. But for reasons where you accidentally deleted the e-mail message or you cannot access your email to check your amount due, you can do this instead.

Create a new message, type PLDTHOMEBILL and send it to 0970 0000 171. This is open to all networks and free for Smart, TNT, Globe and TM. Smart and TNT customers may also send PLDTHOMEBILL to 8171 for free.

How soon will my payment reflect?

I really depends on the payment channel that you choose, it could reflect within 30 minutes – 6 hours, some even a day or two. Do note that payment centers have cut off time.
