    Why are we charging a fee for paper bills?

    As a technology company we encourage you to interact with us digitally. The best way to do that is through the My Telstra app, where you can manage your account, pay for your services, access support easily and much more.

    You can continue to get a paper bill without charge if you:

    • have a Telstra Pensioner Discount, an Australian Government Health Care card or Veteran’s Affairs concession,
    • are on the Telstra Disability Equipment Program, receiving a Braille or Large Print Bill, or
    • don’t have an email address and access to an active internet service.

    If you think you should be exempt, message us or explore other ways to contact us.

    If you have a Telstra Upfront Mobile Plan, you won’t receive a bill. Instead, you’ll receive a tax invoice after your AutoPay payment is successful. You’ll get an SMS to let you know when your tax invoice is ready to view, download and print from the My Telstra app

    Frequently asked questions

    Sign in to My Telstra and go to Payments. Select the bill or account to update.

    You can download bills, view invoices and make payments, under 'Payments' in My Telstra.

    Upfront mobile or data plans

    If you're on an Upfront mobile or data plan, you won't receive a bill for your Telstra services because you’ll know the cost of your plan each month, upfront.

    You can view your upcoming payment dates in My Telstra and because you've signed up with AutoPay, you won't need to remember to make a payment – the AutoPay payment will occur on your monthly payment date, which is the same date each month.

    Once your AutoPay payment is successful, you'll get an SMS with a link to download your digital receipt. You can also view this receipt (and past receipts) in My Telstra.

    There are two bill types you can choose from, Summary or Itemised.

    • A Summary bill lists the charges on your account.
    • An Itemised bill includes the details of chargeable activity on your account over multiple pages.

    You can choose how you view your bill, as a summary bill or itemised, by following these instructions:
