The new eBill is an alternative service designed to offer customers the convenience of multiple bill payment choices and an environment friendly option where, with just a few clicks away, customers can view all their postpaid bills and easily pay online through www.etisalat.ae/online from their homes, offices or on the move. Etisalat customers can also enjoy mobile pay services to pay their Etisalat bills by using their mobile handsets. They need to simply subscribe to the mobile pay service online. Customers also have an additional option to activate the online auto pay service, to pay their bills at regular intervals, without their involvement.
Option to combine details of multiple services in one single bill
Etisalat has also introduced today a new facility allowing customers to combine multiple bills of more than one service into a single bill, for example, mobile postpaid service and eLife service charges received in a single bill. Customers can further choose to receive the combined bill via email through Etisalat's eBill service or by post.
Etisalat's customers who choose the eBill payment method and want to participate in the initiative to save paper, can request activation of the service by simply calling 101 or by visiting any of their nearest Etisalat outlets.
Khalifa Al Shamsi, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Etisalat, said: 'Etisalat is committed to deliver customer-friendly solutions by enabling technology and offer customers convenient options that suit their fast-paced lifestyles. The new eBill service is one such example that will save our customers time and effort. In addition, it will provide them with a secure and hassle-free method of receiving and paying their bills from the comforts of their homes or offices.'
Online bill payment through eBill also seeks to reduce paper waste. "It is ultimately the responsibility of every individual to consider the environmental impact of their actions and Etisalat's activation of its online 'paperless' billing is aimed to gradually eliminate paper waste and reduce the carbon footprint,' he added.
