You can top up your electric prepaid meter easily from the comfort of your smartphone online.
In Nigeria today, there are 11 Electricity Distribution Companies (DISCOs): Abuja Electricity Distribution Company plc, Benin Electricity Distribution Company plc, Eko Electricity Distribution Company plc, Enugu Electricity Distribution Company plc, Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company plc, Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company plc, Jos Electricity Distribution Company plc, Kano Electricity Distribution Company plc, Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company plc, Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company plc, Yola Electricity Distribution Company plc.
Each of the aforementioned DISCOs is responsible for handling electricity distribution in each state or region. So, electricity bill payment is made to them.
As every purchase/bill payment is made online, it becomes essential to know how to pay electric bills online. Hence, Geeky Nigeria has compiled the online platforms you can use to make payments:
Quickteller is widely used in Nigeria to settle almost all kinds of payments online. Quickteller is owned and managed by Interswitch, a payment processing company headquartered in Lagos.

- Scroll down, and select “Utilities”

Jumia pay also allows you to pay your electric bills online. You can download their app to enjoy fast and easy access to payments. Their website can also be used if you don’t have access to your smartphone. Simply click “Sign in” on the homepage to login with your email address or Facebook.
Opay is another alternative for your electric bill payments. You can pay utility bills and carry out other financial transactions on the platform.
But Unlike Quickteller and Jumia, it is operated primarily on smartphone, as it has no website interface.
You can also bay through your Bank’s Mobile App. Login to the app, look around for bill payments. You may have to search under the “Utilities” section if you cannot readily find Your DISCO.
