How does paperless billing work?

You can follow a few simple steps to sign up for paperless billing, then you will receive your bills electronically, rather than by mail. An email will be sent to you each month when your bill is ready, and will include a link and options for how to pay.

Paperless billing highlights:
  • You can review, print or save copies of your bills going back at least 12 months.
  • You will receive a paper bill until your paperless request takes effect, usually within two billing cycles.
  • Your bill is available online no more than four days after it is issued.
  • Signing up for paperless billing doesn't change your monthly due date.
  • You can still pay your bill onlineby mailin person or by phone, and you can continue to use the same methods of payment as before. Prepaid and AutoPay customers will enter a payment method to be billed automatically each month.

Tip: If you don't start receiving emails from us, check your spam, bulk or junk folders, and add CenturyLink to your approved senders list.
