Postpaid

For the postpaid method only monthly billing cycle is available.

Charging for postpaid is done on the 1st of the nearest month; cycle (monthly) payment amount will be prorated according to the number of used days in the month (counting from the first day of purchase).

For postpaid orders the charge for 1 active day is calculated as the order’s amount divided by the number of days in the last full billing cycle (month).

The amount charged for the postpaid order is thus calculated as:

(Price / Number of days in the month) * Days active

In the shown figure the order will be charged on the 1st of Month 2 for the following periods of Month 1:

  • From the first activation date till the suspension date. In the shown example this will be the period of [5th of Month 1 – 15th of Month 1].
  • If activated again during the month: from the activation date till the next suspension date if suspended, or otherwise till the end of the month. In the shown example this will be the period of [25th of Month 1 – 1st of Month 2).
