Dodo Supplier Guide
Dodo first started in June of 2010. Since the beginning, Dodo has been focusing on providing affordable power to citizens of VIC, NSW, SA, and South-East Queensland.
While Dodo offers electricity plans in all of the above states, they only provide gas plans for select postcodes in VIC and NSW.
More recently, Dodo has become a part of the Vocus Group, and provide far more services than just power. Instead of dealing with multiple companies for each utility, you can contact Dodo for energy, internet, home and mobile phones, TV, insurance, and of course, electricity and gas.
- Dodo provides power to residents of VIC, NSW, SA, and South-East Queensland.
- They provide a “Pay on Time” discount that applies as long as you keep up with your bills.
- Dodo provides incremental bills based on estimates, and allows flexibility on when and how you make your payments.
Pay On Time Discount
The Pay On Time Discount is available to all Dodo customers, but the amount you’ll save varies depending on your state and region.
The discount applies to bills that you pay on the agreed date. Your deduction reduces if you pay after the agreed date, and becomes void if you miss the due date.
Still, if you make every payment on time, these savings will add up.
Combine Your Policies
As part of the Vocus Group, Dodo is more than just an energy provider. You can purchase a range of services from the Dodo website if you live in the right area of the country.
By combining phone, internet, energy, television, your bills become much easier to manage. You won’t have to contact multiple companies if you have an issue or are moving homes. Instead, Dodo will be able to handle all of your concerns and complaints.
Of course, you don’t have to select a full range of services from Dodo. You can stick with them as an energy retailer if you find affordable mobile and internet plans elsewhere. For those who are looking to simplify their bills, though, Dodo provides a compelling option.
Energy plans through Dodo are always flexible and never fixed. You can get a better idea of how much Dodo will charge if you visit their website to look at a pricing breakdown, receive a quote, or view how they currently compare through our online tool.
Dodo provides electricity to residents of VIC, NSW, SA, and South-East Queensland. Your distributor will depend on your postcode, but all contracts are No-Term. This means that you can cancel your plan with no penalty as long as you give Dodo proper notice.
You’ll receive the following Pay On Time Discounts by entering a “No Term” contract with Dodo:
- 40% discount for residents of VIC
- 25% discount for residents of South-East Queensland
- 30% discount for residents of NSW
- 25% discount for residents of SA
Since Dodo gas isn’t available in most areas, not as many homeowners will be able to take advantage of their gas plans.
Dodo offers gas plans to people in VIC and select postcodes in NSW. You need to have an active electricity account with Dodo under the same name and address to receive gas from their distributors.
Dodo also offers plans that combine your gas and electricity in some states. By combining plans, you stand to save 20% on your gas bill.
If you’re planning on moving and staying with Dodo, you have to let them know at least three business days beforehand. Dodo allows a little more leeway than some other energy companies, and three days is usually easy enough to manage before you pack your things to leave.
Once you know where you’re moving, contact Dodo with your:
- Dodo customer number
- Current address
- New address
- Contact information
- Date you plan on moving
- Identification details
From there, the Dodo staff will take the proper steps to shut off the power in your previous home and get you set up with your new plan.
Concessions and Rebates
Dodo will automatically apply any available concessions or rebates to your energy bill.
Some of these rebates and concessions require proof, however, so make sure you cover this with Dodo before signing an energy contract.
We recommend contacting Dodo throughout the process to find out more about your options.
Each state has different requirements for rebates and concessions, and the Dodo staff will be able to give you information on what evidence they need to see.
Receiving Your Bill
When it’s time to pay your electricity bill, Dodo will send you a notification via email. You can then view and pay your bill on their online portal.
If you prefer a printed bill in the mail, Dodo charges an additional print fee. This will apply to both your gas and electricity bill.
Paying Your Bill
You have a few options when it comes to paying your Dodo power bill. If making lump-sum payments on every bill is too much of a strain on your bank account, Dodo can make incremental withdrawals from your linked account to lighten the burden when your bill is eventually due.
These incremental payments will be estimated since Dodo can’t read your meter themselves. They’ll take the information you provide or material from your previous bills to calculate what you’ll owe in the future.
If you don’t have enough funds in your account to cover one of these payments, you need to inform Dodo three business days before you’re scheduled to be charged.
If you fail to notify them in enough time, the missed payment will force you to pay a dishonour fee.
Dodo aims to be flexible with their customers, so if this direct debit system doesn’t work for you, contact Dodo for other options.
If you have a problem with the price of your energy bill, first take account of some elements you might not have considered.
You might have received an estimated bill that was far too low. If this was the case, then your determined bill might be higher than you expected.
Also, make sure you’re not comparing bills from different seasons. Your energy bill will usually be higher in the winter, for example, as you use more power to heat your home.
If you have a legitimate dispute, however, take a look at the meter reading on your bill and check it against your current meter reading. Call Dodo and explain the situation if this is the case.
If your meter reading matches the bill, but you still think it’s wrong, contact Dodo and request a special meter reading. However, you might receive an extra charge for time spent if the meter is accurate.
