If you have got an internet banking service with your bank, you can actually use it to purchase PHCN meter token online without having to go to the PHCN office. This is useful and more convenient for people who already have the prepaid meters and now load electricity credit using meter tokens.

What you'll need
=========
- Internet banking service
- PHCN meter number
- Cash in bank

How to do it
============
- Connect to the internet
- Visit your bank's official website
- Log in to your account using your username and password
- Go to the pay bills option
- Select PHCN
- Enter your meter number, amount you are buying and other neccesary details
- Confirm the transaction
- Enter any OTP password if necessary

If successful, the meter token will be emailed to your email address and/or phone number. You can then use the token to load it to your prepaid meter.

If you ask me, this is more convenient than going out to buy meter token at their office or banks and it only takes about 5 mins.

    do bank charge you for recharging your prepaid meter online do they take any money from your account

    You have to pay for the bills from your bank account. If using internet banking, it would automatically be debited from your bank balance. I think there is also a commission of about N50.

Re: How to buy PHCN meter token with your internet banking service Reply by Felix Okoli on Wednesday October 15, 2014 at 14:19:44:

If your zone is not included, just use the one that says All Zones. You can find it on quickteller.com

Pls there is no such thing as meter number during d transaction, I only saw account number, tried entering my meter number severally n it kept telling me wrong account number, wat shud I do?




Re: How to buy PHCN meter token with your internet banking service Reply by Felix Okoli on Monday April 6, 2015 at 19:50:53:

If you are not asked meter number, you will be asked something like customer reference number


Re: How to buy PHCN meter token with your internet banking service Reply by Adejuwon on Sunday July 26, 2015 at 2:20:12:

I did a transaction and they debited my account for intended amount plus service charge. But I never received any token/pin.

How could I believe this will work in Nigeria?



Re: How to buy PHCN meter token with your internet banking service Reply by Felix Okoli on Sunday July 26, 2015 at 2:20:12:

Did you also check your email? Which platform did you use for the transaction. If it's quickteller, you'd be able to see the pin by logging into your account. You can always complain to your bank about the problem and after they confirm, they will credit back your account.


Re: How to buy PHCN meter token with your internet banking service Reply by Dayo on Sunday October 18, 2015 at 7:49:48:

On the quick teller site, it says post-paid for all zones. I'm guessing if you use a pre-paid meter then you are just throwing your money away. Am I right in this?



Re: How to buy PHCN meter token with your internet banking service Reply by Felix Okoli on Sunday October 18, 2015 at 7:49:48:

If you are using a prepaid meter, your meter number will probably not get read as a post paid meter so the transaction will probably not be successful in the first place.

How did you pay? You can try checking on your payment history in the online account and you might see the meter token printed there.

Re: How to buy PHCN meter token with your internet banking service Reply by Felix Okoli on Sunday September 11, 2016 at 22:11:54:

Check your last PHCN bill to see which company is handling your area. I think it should be Eko distribution but I'm not sure
