How to Recharge Your PHCN Prepaid Meter Online in Less Than 10Min

In this jet age era, it will be completely abysmal to queue
up in the bank or PHCN office to pay your PHCN bill when you can simply do this
at the comfort of your home via your phone or PC.

Today, a lot of homes in Nigeria are
using the Prepaid Meter, the digital power consumption calculation device.
Basically, if you have a prepaid meter in your house, it means that the company
will bill you for the amount of energy that you’ve used in the previous quarter
or month.

 If you have the Prepaid Meter, then your days
of standing in line all day in order to pay your bills are finally over. You
can recharge it faster and easier. 
Note: If you have a shop or a small shade, you can actually turn this into business by helping people to recharge their prepaid meter with your own charges attached
There are different ways of getting
your Prepaid meter recharged within minutes but I’m going to share the easiest
way with you.
>>A Smartphone or PC
>>Internet Connection
