The City of Cape Coral is pleased to announce the transition to a new online billing and payment solution is complete and the system is now open for customer enrollment.
How to Pay Your Utility Bill:
Sign into the new Tyler Munis online billing system - https://selfservice.capecoral.gov/css/ - which allows users to set up electronic billing, schedule automatic bank draft or credit card payments, and make one-time online payments.
Registering in the new system is quick and easy:
- Pull up a past utility statement to access your Customer ID and Account number as this information is required to enroll in the new system; You will also need the primary phone number that was used to set up the account originally.
- Note: On the example of a previous utility statement shown below, the Customer ID is the number located to the left of the dash (999999) and the Account number is located to the right of the dash (111111).
- If your account number is less than six digits, you will need to add leading zeros to pad the number to six digits. For instance, account number 1234 would need to be entered as 001234.
- Click here to watch a short video on how to enroll in the new system, link your account, add or reinstate electronic billing statements, and make payments online.
Note: If your February or March statement amount is higher than usual, please understand the billing system transition may result in more billing days in January/February as new billing cycles adjust.
