Why your account may be suspended

If you're not enrolled in autobilling:

  • Your last month's statement is due on the 1st of this month.
  • If your statement is not paid by 12:00 a.m. UTC on the 16th day of the month (or 7 p.m. ET on the 15th), it will become overdue and you account may be suspended.

If you're enrolled in autobilling:

  • If we're unable to process a payment using your card on file, you'll receive an email and on-site notifications reminding you to provide full payment within 5 days.
  • During this 5-day grace period of nonpayment, you'll continue to receive incoming orders, but certain account privileges will be restricted.
  • If your account continues to be overdue after 5 days, your account will be suspended.
