Billing Frequently Asked Questions
The Frequency of Billing
We will invoice you one month in advance until termination either on the date you commenced the service, or invoice you pro-rata for the first month and thereafter on the first day of the month to align to calendar months.
Service charges are invoiced monthly. Excess Usage (where applicable) charges will be calculated at the end of the month.
We will automatically charge the invoiced amount to your nominated credit card or direct bank debit to you nominated account. This amount will include the monthly charges for the service, charges for additional features on your account, and any excess charges as may be applicable for your Service.
If your credit card is declined or your direct debit bank account has insufficient funds available, you will be charged a $14.80 handling fee by our merchant provider EziDebit. In addition your service may be suspended. If charges remain unpaid after 14 days, Ascensa may at its discretion, in addition to any other remedy available to it, terminate the service and/or charge a late administration fee $7.70 and commence our debt recovery procedure.
