A guide to TDS online bill pay

TDS Online Bill Pay is the fast, free, and easy way to view and pay your bill.

Let’s face it; paying bills online has become the norm. Here are some advantages to paying online:

  • Automatic bill payments means there’s no worries about paying the bills when you go on vacation.
  • Pay your bills from anywhere in the world.
  • View past bills without having to keep old files of account statements.
  • Save on stamps and trips to the post office.

When looking at online payment options, TDS recommends customers use a banking account (like a checking or savings account) to pay their bill.  Checking and saving accounts do no expire like a credit card, which means you won’t have to spend time adding a new card to your account when it does expire.

Also, with the amount of credit card fraud these days it’s not uncommon for credit cards to be cancelled and reissued.  You’ll avoid all that if you set up online bill pay to withdraw from a checking or savings account.

To access TDS Online Bill Pay, visit hellotds.com look for “My Account/Login” then select Online Bill Pay.

You’ll need your TDS Online Account user name and password to log in. That’s the same combination you use to log in to your TDS email or watch TVEverywhere. If you don’t have an Online Account set up, no worries. You can sign up at login.tds.net/register.

    I am perfectly willing to be billed online. I have an account set up with my bank to pay TDS every month. I will not allow TDS or any other entity to withdraw funds from my account. My way is paperless and is still in my control. I like my way better.

      Thank you so much! Paying directly from your bank is a great way to pay..and leaves you in control. Enrolling in our ePay, online billing is simply another alternative for customers. But it sounds like you’re all set. Thanks for being a TDS customer.

    I would like to do auto pay ? I was told years ago you don’t do that, is this still true ? Being on disability, this is the best option for me aside from calling in . Thank you.

      The main reason consumers use autopay is to make sure bills are paid on time. I use autopay, but I still check my bank account to make sure the bills were paid on time.
