First of all, what you need to do is to download the PTCL touch app. To download simply go in your iPhone AppStore or if you are using an android phone then go in the play store, Type PTCL touch app and download it.
Register An Account
After you have downloaded the app then open the app and click register an account. One thing that you need to keep in mind is that after you registered your PTCl internet the first time then probably your online account was created also.
That account would be linked to your mobile phone number or the email address you provided while registering for the internet service. So simply retrieve these details if you don’t remember by using forgot email address option within the app.
After you provide the email address that was used to register the account then a verification code will be sent on your mobile phone number that was linked with your account and also on your email address. So it’s ok if you don’t remember the email address login details because you will also receive the verification code on your mobile phone number.
So after you have reset the account details login your app using those login details.
Now if you don’t have an online account or the app says user not found then you probably need to create a new account. That is very easy also.
To register an online account you need these details
- Account id
- Mobile phone number
- Email address
account id and CNIC details are already mentioned on your bill. so you can get those details from your bill. So simply register an account using the above information and login.
Select Bills Enquiry/Payment
Once you login to the app from there you need to select bills inquiry/payment then just provide the detail it asks in the next steps. it will be like providing your landline number and providing the card details and provide the amount that you need to pay.
In the last step, it will require you to insert your card details and simply click pay when that’s done. And that’s simply how you will make payment online for ptcl bill through its ptcl touch app.
Important: Card Type
Please note that you cannot use international cards to pay through ptcl touch app. This seems a big flaw in not only ptcl app but all over Pakistan for payment like such services. So some services will accept your international card and some will not. If your card is declined then its simply because of this reason.
You can only use the Pakistani credit/debit card to make the payment for ptcl bill.
