Can I use PN Static IP for remote dial-in, Draytek 2860

I’m looking for some help with remote dial-in on a Draytek 2860.  At the moment I subscribe to DYN for a DDNS service, but I’m thinking that with the static IP I have since moving to PN, can I use this to enable remote dial in.  I have VPN’s set up on an iPhone and remote Mac and both get an IP from my ‘home’ network as if I’m connected to my home network when connected to the VPN.  This works great but do I really need this now?  I changed to PlusNet because they offered a static IP but need help with config if it can be done.  I won’t be leaving PN if not!   Sorry to be long winded and appreciate any help.

Simple answer is , yes. If you have a static IP then  the url <youraccountname>.plus.com will resolve to your public IP. So you can use that instead of DDNS.
