What is eBilling
eBilling means electing to receive your bills via email. Your energy bills will be sent directly to your nominated email address in PDF format.
What are the benefits of eBilling?
The benefits of an email invoice include:
- Helping the environment by cutting down on paper usage.
- Receive your invoices anywhere, anytime
- Get invoices as soon as they are issued - giving you longer to pay before due date
- Reduced risk of invoice getting lost in the mail
Ability to store invoice electronically without having to have a paper file. We will even keep the record for you when you set up a Customer Web account. click here to set up a Customer Web account
Is there a cost to receive my bill by email?
No. Email invoices are free of charge.
Where can I find my customer number? Is it the same as my account number?
You can find your customer number on the front of any bill down the bottom of the page on the payment slip. It will be below the payment barcode. Your customer number is a
unique number which identifies you and all your Simply Energy accounts. It is different from your account numbers which identify your separate accounts for electricity and gas.
How do I ensure the email gets through to me and does not go to my junk/spam folder?
Spam or junk filtering settings may be different depending on which email program you use. Your bill will be emailed on behalf of Simply Energy by a specialised provider that complies with anti-spam requirements, and will appear as coming from email@example.com. Generally speaking, if you add this email address as a contact in your address book or to your safe list, it won't be marked as spam or junk mail.
