How to Pay your Meralco Bill Online with BDO Online Banking

Are you still paying your Meralco Bill for your electricity consumption at the Meralco Office or at the bayad center?

Isn’t it a hassle especially if there’s a long line and you have to wait a couple more minutes to settle your bill? Or maybe for some, going to and from the bayad center will cost you additional money for your transpo.

Do you know that you can actually pay your Meralco bill online?

The good news is, yes, you can! In fact, many consumers (myself included) have already been paying our bills online. It’s fast, safe, and hassle-free.

How do we do this? 

First of all, you need to enroll in an online banking facility. Most of the banks now offer online banking, but in this post, we’ll use BDO online banking as an example since this is also what I use when paying my Meralco bill.

If you have not enrolled your BDO account in BDO Online Banking yet, follow the steps below. (Skip this if you already have already registered/enrolled).

  1. Visit the BDO website (https://online.bdo.com.ph)
