Automatic Payments via PayPal Now Available to All ICDSoft Partners

Back in June, we introduced a safe and convenient way for all partners with an active account balance/overdraft to have their services renewed automatically. We got a lot of positive feedback about this feature, and quite a few of our partners are already happily using it. This way they can let the automatic system take care of service renewal, while they focus on developing their web projects and growing their business.

So, following the great reception, we are now bringing automatic payments to all of our partners. From now on the only thing you need in order to use automatic payments is a PayPal account.

How to enable automatic payments?

You can easily enable automatic payments for your account from the ICDSoft Account Panel Dashboard > Auto Clear Balance via PayPal > Enable. You will be taken to PayPal's website to complete the activation process.

Once you do this, you will be able to activate the Auto Renewal option for any hosting account, domain name, and SSL certificate via its management page in the Account Panel. The automatic renewal of any hosting resource (domain name, SSL certificate, Extended Backups, Advanced Security, Dedicated IP address) associated with a hosting account can be enabled or disabled separately.

You can check and manage your automatic payments at any time via the Billing section in the Account Panel > Automatic Payments.

How do automatic payments work?

When you have a hosting service due for renewal, and you have enabled the Auto Renewal option for it, the system will automatically renew the service and add the renewal fee as a debit to your Account Balance. Once a month, the system will automatically clear any outstanding balance by charging your PayPal account.

You can always pay for a certain service manually even if it is included in an automatic payment. Upon manual renewal, the payment and expiration dates of the service will be updated automatically. You can cancel your automatic payments at any time without any extra fees.
