Windstream is one of the most popular residential phone, internet, and TV provider in the United States. It also offers managed services and voice/data communication to businesses all over the country. The provider’s services are available in 21 states across the US, with millions of customers subscribing to its residential services. If you’re a new subscriber or are looking to switch, you probably aren’t familiar with Windstream Bill Pay. The provider makes it very easy and convenient for you to pay your bills well before the due date, through multiple channels. Read on for more information.
Also known as Windstream Communications and Windstream Holdings Inc., the provider has been around for more than a decade. Established in 2006, the provider was the result of a merger between Valor Communications Group and Alltel. Since then, the provider has amassed over 1.05 million providers in 21 states as of 2019, most of these being residential internet and TV customers.
The company originally started out publishing telephone directories for the former Alltel wireline infrastructure. It also published directories for KLM Telephone, TDS Telecom, and a number of smaller providers in the telephone service industry. However, in 2019, the provider launched its Kinetic services that met with immense popularity in many markets.
The provider’s Kinetic TV works with the provider’s Kinetic internet plans, starting at 10 Mbps. It allows you to get the most out of your TV streaming, making use of MobiTV Connect. The Kinetic plans remain the provider’s most popular option, helping it add more customers despite growing competition from streaming services like Hulu Live and SlingTV. The provider allows you to pay your bill in a number of convenient ways. They follow below.
The easiest way to manage your Windstream billing is to pay it online. To do so, you need an account on the provider’s MyWIN portal. If you already have an account, the process to pay your dues is fairly simple. First, you need to log in to MyWIN. Once you enter your credentials, the portal will redirect you to your account’s home page. Search for the “Pay Now” tab and click on it to open the “Make a Payment” page. Select your payment method, the billing amount, and hit “Pay Now” to execute your Windstream online bill pay. It’s that simple.
Don’t already have a MyWIN account? Don’t worry. Creating one isn’t that difficult. Register yourself for a new account at MyWIN. Once you have your credentials, log in, then follow the same steps as above to pay for your current billing cycle.
Automatic Bank Drafts
Keeping track of billing and due dates can be a hassle, especially when you have other responsibilities like family, friends, pets, etc. In such cases, it can be easy to lose track of the due date for your current billing cycle. Unfortunately, being late with your kinetic Windstream bill pay is a good way to get your service suspended and earn a late-payment penalty. That is why so many people prefer to set up automatic billing, with their service bills automatically drafted from their specified bank account.
It is very simple to set up automatic payments using your MyWIN account. Log in to your home page, and select the “Auto Pay” option. This will redirect you to a different page with information on the provider’s automatic payment service. All you have to do is fill out the mandatory fields, and add the payment method to your account. The payment for your next billing cycles will now be drafted automatically from the bank account you added.
Of course, if technology just isn’t your cup of tea, or if you have trouble setting up payments, you can always choose to pay your bills in person. To do so, you need to visit either the provider’s local store near you or find the nearest payment location. If you aren’t sure where to find a store or payment location, reach out to Windstream Customer Support. The provider’s reps will be able to point you towards the nearest location in your area.
Through Direct Mail
Of course, before the internet became popular, people often paid their bills the old-fashioned way. That is, via direct mail. This is also known as snail mail since it actually has to travel physical distances from the sender to the receiver. Internet speeds being what they are, paying online is usually a much faster and more convenient option. But if you are most comfortable with direct mail, the provider accepts payments to the following address:
P.O. Box 9001908
Louisville, KY 40290-1908
Please note, however, that your payment needs to reach the provider before your billing due date. Otherwise, you may be assessed with a late-payment penalty.
Over the Phone
Finally, we come to the last bill payment option that the provider offers to its subscribers. No matter how popular the internet gets, we are creatures of instinct. And it is still instinctive to interact with brands, sellers, and providers through the most convenient way possible: over the phone. You can use the Windstream pay bill by phone option to easily and instantly pay your dues.
A simple call to +1-844-363-0089, the Windstream number to pay bills, is all you need to do. You can choose between using the automated service to pay your dues or seeking the help of a service rep. Be warned that with a rep processing your payment, you may be charged an additional service processing fee.
