If you’re in the EEA

If you're in the EEA, which comprises the EU, Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein, you may be asked to authenticate your payment when you choose Submit Payment.

To authenticate a payment, you will need to respond to a prompt from your card issuer and provide additional information. Depending on your card issuer, this may include a correct response to a question, a password, or a passcode.

When does a bill become overdue?

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 am UTC on the 16th day of the month (or 7 pm ET on the 15th), it will become overdue and your 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.
