There are several advantages to having paperless billing. First and foremost, it’s good for the environment. When we save paper, we reduce the need to cut down trees to make new paper. Less trees cut and less trash, that’s how going paperless can save the earth big time.
The Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (MAYNILAD) launched a program that gives customers the option to receive an Electronic Statement of Account (e-SOA) instead of a printed copy of their monthly water bill.
Enrolling in the Maynilad Paperless Billing Program eliminates the need to touch a printed copy of the SOA or face a meter reader to receive the SOA, thus lessening physical contact that may lead to COVID-19 transmission.
Maynilad customers with an active My Water Bill online portal account as of October 22,2021 are automatically enrolled to the Paperless Billing Program. Those without a portal account should get one first before enrolling the Paperless Billing Program. The portal account is necessary, as this is where the customers can view their e-SOA online. It is also through the portal that customers can choose how they wish to get their bill notifications – that is, whether via email and/or SMS.
To create an account, just follow these steps:
- Enter the Contract Account Number (CAN) which can be found in the upper portion of the water bill.
- Nominate a password (The password should be between 6 to 20 characters with at least one (1) uppercase and lowercase letter, and one (1) numeric digit.
- Set security questions to secure the account.
- Select a personal image.
- Input contact information.
Once the customer has a portal account, enrolment to Paperless Billing is easy.
Text MAYNILAD<space>ON<space>PAPERLESS<space>CONTRACT ACCOUNT NUMBER and send it to 09191626000.
The customer must ensure that the mobile number being used for the enrollment is the same mobile number registered in the My Water Bill online portal account.
When will my application be activated?
The activation will take effect on your next reading schedule after your application has been approved. This means that you will start receiving the e-SOA in the next billing cycle, or one month after your application was approved. Note that once the application for the Maynilad Paperless Billing Program is activated, you will no longer receive a hard copy of your water bill.
