Why invalid payment details in paying meralco bill?

Ishie   (14 December 2018 2:47 PM)

How many days before it will reflect on my meralco app bill? I paid my bill for the first time last Dec 12 and its a successful transaction and yet when i checked my meralco app it stated there i am still not paid. Anyone? Thanks

Dave   (03 December 2018 6:14 AM)

The app does not work, even if you correctly fill in all what u all have said in here. Tried a hundred time already but still up to no success.

Compared to BPI, This BDO, app sucks!!!

Ken   (18 October 2018 4:01 PM)

I already solved this "invalid payment details" by completing the amount, don`t just put 500 instead put 500.00


se7en   (08 October 2018 1:42 PM)

read the comments below, it works when you type in the EXACT amount as others have noted. Thanks.

Cyen Lazam   (26 September 2018 7:18 PM)

I followed to put the first 11 digits of the atm/phone ref no still it’s invalid

Meng Castillo   (25 August 2018 11:15 PM)

I’ve tried it last year and this year, it still shows up as invalid payment details.

Cecil   (02 July 2018 9:45 PM)

Tried it just now it was successful please take note of the ff

1 for the ATM reference number make sure to input the last 5 digits on the lower left portion of your bill

2 the amount you must input is the exact amount up to decimal place on your billing statement

System in bdo online payment meralco is Broken. Smh. Invalid payment. Waste of time.

Captain obvious   (29 October 2017 2:55 PM)

Don't bother paying your Meralco bills using BDO online. After 5 different houses in 12 years and a hundred times trying to enroll and pay, the system just doesn't work. BDO should just remove this option. Other billers work flawlessly.

Arnel Santos   (26 September 2017 10:46 AM)

It's not accepting my online payment. It says invalid payment details. I put in 00550966977 for subscriber number and 09070 for ATM Ref number.

Gladys Gay Mellado   (25 September 2017 6:28 AM)

Hi. I just followed the steps above and was able to enroll my Meralco account. But when I tried to pay online, it prompted "Invalid Number".

Hope you can assist. Thanks

FRANK BUERCK   (13 July 2017 12:51 PM)

Efren Handumon   (02 December 2016 3:10 AM)

It shows "invalid payment amount" on the bills I am paying online. Please help as my due date is 30November and since 29th Nov till now, the issue is the same. Thanks

Efren Handumon   (02 December 2016 3:06 AM)

Hello, I am paying my bills online but it's always showing invalid amount. Kindly help.


Susan Dolon   (28 October 2016 6:08 AM)

Thank you for this blog...very helpful! I had a hard time enrolling my meralco bill until I read your tip. Thanks again.

Cindz   (24 July 2016 7:48 PM)

Thanks Grazelle! Your suggestion worked!
Key in the EXACT total amount due, up to the last centavo. No more, no less. I experienced the same problem, "Invalid Payment Details" when I estimated/entered more than the total amount due. Hope this helps

cleofe dutollo   (24 July 2016 0:11 AM)

Can you guide me why?


Caryll pacoma   (11 July 2016 7:03 PM)

Just asking if there is any charge in paying meralco bill thru online banking payment.thank u

John   (29 December 2015 2:13 PM)

Hi, I've try to pay my bill through online BDO banking for several times. I Can't able to process the transaction, due to the invalid details, but I already double checked all the necessary procedure and it seems all correct. Hope you can help me foŕ this problem.


Angela Aera Gariguez   (13 November 2015 9:41 AM)

Invalid Payment even though I have enrolled MERALCO as my biller and entered the correct information needed. Seriously, this is supposed to help. Not add in the hassle of paying bills.

Marco   (10 September 2015 5:28 PM)

Sorry, don't listen to my below comment. It's not the BRN. If it gives you an error when trying to enter the Reference Number as the first 11 digits of your ATM Reference No, just reload the page and try again. It worked on my second attempt

Marco   (02 September 2015 11:23 AM)

This video might help for figuring out how to enroll

For me, I used an old bill that was already paid so I didn't have the bottom stub. Just flip over your bill and in the top left corner there is a 'BRN:" Enter that number as your reference number. Done

Chona   (26 August 2015 11:26 PM)

Every time I pay our meralco bill online I encounter problem regarding the ATM/Phone Ref#, isn't it the last 5 digits? ex: our account # is 0 0499129903 06310 so I enter 06310 and submit and it's INVALID but the other bills like Maynilad & PLDT are ok. I also make sure I pay it before the due date. Seriously, I am getting annoyed already, Can you please help me.


MARI   (12 August 2015 2:16 PM)

It keeps saying "Subscriber Number is not valid.", I already entered the 11 digit number appearing on my ATM/phone reference number. And my bill is not yet overdue!

Evelyn B. Manongsong   (04 August 2015 2:29 PM)

Why I cannot pay my meralco monthly bills even I have sufficient account balance from my bdo? My due date is July 30, 2015. Hope to hear from you soon.
