Maynilad Goes Paperless: Receiving, Tracking and Paying Your Maynilad Bills Hassle-Free

Are you still waiting for the physical copy of your bill? Do you collect them for tracking purposes? Indeed, this is not practical anymore, not only because of the safety protocols being implemented to minimize the possible transmission of COVID19, but also because it is hassle and requires additional task for moms like us. Let us not forget that this is also not environment-friendly. Here’s the good news; Maynilad goes paperless now, happy as this is one less billing that I need to wait for and collect.

What I love about paperless billing is that I can easily track my current and previous billings. It also reduces the clutter at home when it comes to storing the physical copy of my bills.

It also makes me feel more secured when in comes to my personal data as it eliminates the possibility of losing your bill where your personal information can be found.

Ultimately, it removes the need for physical contact with meter readers to get your hard copy Statement of Account (SOA), thus preventing possible COVID-19 transmission.

What is the Maynilad Paperless Billing Program?

  • It is a program that allows Maynilad customers the option to receive an Electronic Statement of Account (e-SOA) instead of the physical copy of their SOA.

What are the benefits to the customer of enrolling in Maynilad’s Paperless Billing Program?

  • It allows customers to access their e-SOA anytime, anywhere.
  • It removes the need for physical contact with meter readers to get your hard copy SOA, thus preventing possible COVID-19 transmission.
  • It makes the tracking and monitoring of previous e-SOAs easier and more convenient.
  • It eliminates the chances of losing or misplacing your water bill.
  • It provides an option to get bill notifications via SMS and/or email.
  • It reduces paper consumption and is, thus, environment-friendly.
  • It allows customers to access their e-SOA anytime, anywhere.

    I agree with you that it is hassle-free to pay our bills on the app inside of going to the store or any center to pay the bills.

    Perfect. Less kalat. Anytime you can track your bills and hindi na mawawala or makakalimutan magbayad. This initiative timing ngayong new normal para less contact na rin. Tho, kawawa yung tatamaan like mga delivery riders. But overall, good job pa rin!
