Endless queues at payment centers, long waiting periods for your monthly bill to arrive, and the risk of getting penalty fees for late payments—we know these things stress you out whenever the due date period for monthly bills start getting closer. But what if there’s a way for you to avoid these hassling occurrences and still be able to pay your bills?
Customers of Visayan Electric Company (formerly known as VECO) are in for a treat as the country’s second-largest electric utility offers an entire monthly billing and payment process that centers on their convenience. Through the company’s digital alternatives to the traditional way of viewing and paying monthly utility dues, you can easily skip the lines—and other accompanying hassles—while still paying your bills on time. Here’s how.
Start the experience with digital billing
The no-wait, no-hassle process of paying your Visayan Electric Company bill begins with viewing your monthly dues through the company’s recently-launched supplemental digital service, eBillTxt. eBillTxt sends your monthly utility bill straight to your mobile phone via SMS, instead of the traditional way of getting it through your mailbox. It saves you from the hassle of waiting long for the bill to arrive and even facing the possibility of lost mail.
