Getting your bill

How do I get my bill?
You can get paper bills mailed to you or opt-in to eBilling to get them on your email. For more information, check How to subscribe to eBills.

Can I get both a paper bill and eBill?
Once you’ve signed up for eBill, you will no longer receive a paper bill. If ever you need a copy of your bill, you can print them by logging in to your My Shaw account. For additional details see: View a printer-friendly version of your Shaw bill. You can access bills from the previous 24 months. For more information, check How to view past bills.

Why haven’t I received my bill in the mail yet?
Your bill should arrive in the mail approximately 10 business days before your billing date. Do note that this doesn't factor in Canada Post's service disruptions. You can always view your bill and check your up-to-date balance through My Shaw. Sign up for eBill to get immediate notifications of when your bill is ready.

I’ve signed up for eBill, so why haven’t I received my bill?
You can log in to My Shaw to check the status of your eBill registration. Make sure the email listed matches the one you used to subscribe to eBill. If you still have not received your eBill, it may have been mislabeled and sent to your spam or junk folders. If you find your eBill there, make sure to mark it as “Not spam” to avoid this problem in the future.

Changes in your billing

Made a change to your account recently? Learn how to better understand transfer of balance, payments and changes made since your previous invoice on your current bill.

Why did my bill go up from last month?
There are several explanations for why your balance may have increased, including:

  • End of a special offer or introductory rate (check either My Shaw or the “Details of current charges” section of your bill for more details on your current promotions).
  • Addition of On Demand purchases from the previous month.
  • Addition of new services that were added during the previous month, including one-time installation fees.
  • Package changes and upgrades during your billing cycle can generate prorated amounts.

Why is my balance still showing past due even though I’ve paid my bill?
You may have paid your balance after your bill had already been printed. Your next bill should show that payment. Through My Shaw, you can always check the most up-to-date balance on your account.
