    Your online payment through quickteller is ineffective. I have made payment online through quickteller and my money debited from my GTB bank account but was never reflected in my PHCN subsequent bills I will appreciate it if this is looked into.

  2. I recharged online via quickteller IBEDC disco, luckily I got my pin after a few hours. Pls three 20-digit numbers were sent it read, KCT: 20-digit number | 20-digit number ; 20 digit number….. which exactly is the pin? I’ve tried all severally and none worked so far.. plus, is there a minimum number of entries one can make?

  3. The online payment for prepaid meter is not working for me via quick teller, as complain of wrong meter number… can someone help address this especially if this has worked for you…. Presently I want to pay online but the customer account number is eleven digits. Pls abeg help me out thanks.

  4. Administration, I paid for my prepaid meter bill via atm and no code has been sent to me. What do I have to do or probably if you can provide a customer care line. Thank you

  5. The reason we pay bills is so we don’t get my question is “after making payment online succesfully, what evidence would you present to the guys carrying ladder to show you have paid?”

      1. I’m referring to postpaid meters. Assuming the electronic payment was succesful (cos I have some mobile apps that offer that service), what would you present to the nepa officials when they come around as a proof that you’ve paid?…great job too with this thread answering questions

        1. Hello Fablafab, I got your question. You know that, when you pay anything online, you get the receipt, which can be printed out. So when you pay for NEPA Online, you have to take it to any printing shop or probably, if you have a printer, you can print it out and show them. You are welcome!

  6. Admin…Please reply to Oloye’s question. I’m interested in the response. Is the 11 digit numbers the same as account number? Please respond ASAP. Thank you.

  7. Hello, I also would like to pay by prepaid bills online. I leave in Ifo LGA, Ogun State but it’s under IBDEC disco so I’m guessing I should select the ibadan option? More importantly, is the 11digit number required for the online transactions (I. E on my scratch card). is this my customer account number please?

  8. Paid online 4 ma prepaid meter n my account was debited. I did not receive any message 4rm phcn n my meter is empty. What am I 2 do nw?

  9. Please, how can i recharge my prepaid meter online located in Ijebu ode, under Ibadan zone because am currently in the North for official assignment?

  10. The online payment for prepaid meter is not working for me via quick teller, as complain of wrong meter number… can someone help address this especially if this has worked for you…. Thanks

  11. This is still not a complete solution as some are left out. We can not be doing trial and error! Why can’t there be an option for Prepaid all zones? Why is it that the 4 options are:
    PHCN Post-paid (All zones)
    PHCN Postpaid (IBADAN ZONE)
    PHCN Pre-paid (Eko Zones only)
    PHCN Prepaid (ABUJA ZONE)
    What option should those who use Pre-paid and are not in Eko or Abuja choose? Why can’t there be PHCN Prepaid (ALL zones)? Why?

    1. PHCN hasn’t gotten to that level. But we do hope that before the end of next month, they will definitely includes all the area.

      1. Yes, Micheal, There will soon be! Hope! MayorBombay, stay Intact because when it hits, we will definitely share the article here.

  12. Please I used my first bank mobile to pay and I clicked the option ; PHCN Prepaid (EKO) and it’s two hours now… Without the code sent to my phone, I use a prepaid meter!
    Please what can I do

    1. Hello, you can wait for 24hours but after then and it is not yet sent then the only thing you need to do is to contact them and lay your complain.

  13. Why will the government allow thos in charge of recieving the bill, the teller from the bank are alway’s one person, because people around okota, isolo, oshodi are suffering to get their slip for their pre-paid meters, pls I want those who are in charge of Electricity here in Lagos State should pls look into the matter before it gets out of hand, I have a question, Is this the change we are talking about
