Auto payment. Configure and use Auto payment
Auto payment is a function that recharges the balance automatically. If you have no enough money on the balance to pay for the service, the system will take the required amount straight out of the bank card. There is a charge-off limit — you specify the maximum amount that can be charged off per month.
Auto payment only helps to pay for the tariff and cannot takes money for traffic overcommits. If your server has a tariff price of € 2/day and today you have € 0 on the balance, tomorrow the server will continue to work — Auto payment will simply takes € 2 from your card. But if today the server has exceeded the internet traffic limit (the tariff allowed 20 TB per month, and the server started spending 21st TB), tomorrow the server will stop working — there will be a debt that AutoPayment cannot satisfy. You would better to have some money on the balance for the case of overcommitment.
We always send notifications about traffic overcommitments. Having received it, check the balance: if there is no money enough to pay for the overcommitment, recharge the balance manually.
