Payment options

Pre-Payment: At first, all new registrars will be on pre-pay by default. We will give you an overdraft credit limit of $2,000 (100 registrations).  In case your account reaches zero dollars, transactions will still go through up until the end of the $2,000 credit.  All deposits will first go against credit used with the remaining amount being deposited into your .blog registrar account.

Post-Payment: For those of you that require a higher limit, you can move to post-pay.  To do this, we require a deposit of an amount of your choice that we will hold as a non-interest bearing security deposit.  We will not credit this amount to your .blog registrar account, but instead, you will obtain a credit limit twice the amount sent.  To ensure you have enough credit we recommend a deposit equal to one month’s worth of transactions in which you will then receive twice that amount as a credit.  At the end of each month, we will invoice you for your usage. Our invoices are payable with a net 30 days term.  If we don’t receive payment within the net 30 days term, we will have to resort to moving your account back to pre-pay terms.

Please Note: At our discretion we reserve the right to waive the post-payment deposit for any registrar.
