Prepaid meter vs Post-Paid Meter - The difference between a prepaid and post-paid meter


Did you know that Conlog offers meters that have both a prepaid and post-paid meter mode? Both meter modes will show you your energy usage on digital screens, but they do have some differences. If you aren’t sure which meter mode you should set your meter to, read about the differences between prepaid and post-paid meters below:

Prepaid meters
As the name implies, prepaid meters require users to pay for their electricity beforehand. The users can choose the amount that they need according to their usage, and the digital screen also allows them to monitor their usage. Prepaid meters need to be recharged monthly. The users can use their monthly recharge as a limit to their electricity usage, or the meter can be topped up throughout the month if necessary.

Post-paid meters
Post-paid meters require users to pay after they have already used the electricity, much like standard electricity meters. This means that a professional will come in and take the meter reading, and a bill will be sent to you. You will have continuous use of electricity if the bill is paid within a specified period after receiving your bill.

Conlog gives you the option to switch between the post-paid and prepaid meter modes. You can easily switch to the past meter mode if you are no longer keen to use the current meter mode.
