Payment for services are monthly in advance. That’s also how I am billed when using service providers.
When you place a new order an invoice will be generated and once paid, your hosting account is activated immediately.
You have a choice for monthly billings, quarterly (most preferred option) or annually (getting it out the way – but not all clients can afford this in one go).
Payment can be made via EFT or Paypal for out of country transactions.
I send out invoices during the middle of the month, due for the last working day of the month.
If you do miss a payment, because life sometimes happens, your service is not cancelled immediately, just suspended until payment is made. Once payment has cleared, please allow for up to 24 hours for service to resume.
Services are cancelled when you give notice, miss more than two payments or if you do not renew your domain (renewal notices goes out in the 11th month).
