Billing

General Provisions

  • In order to make timely payments for the service, you need to provide your bank card(s) information to PickPoint and keep this information updated.
  • The payment due date is the day you purchased the service. If the payment due date is later (for example, 31) than the last day of month (for example, 28), then the last day of such month will be considered as the payment due date. The payment due date may change after Changing the Subscription Plan
  • Subscription payments are debited from your card every month on the payment due date. The monthly subscription is paid in advance (unless cancelled by the user). The price of extra calls (if available in your subscription plan) is totaled up for the previous month and added to the payment amount due.
  • If the amount cannot be debited from the current card, PickPoint will attempt to debit money from other cards, in the order they are listed in your account. If the payment fails for all your linked cards, PickPoint will attempt to debit the payment the next day. PickPoint will notify you by email of failed attempts on the first, third, seventh and tenth day. If after 14 days the payment has not been made, the system will suspend the account.
  • PickPoint can debit additional payments in the following cases (including but not limited to): declined card fees, processing fees, service fees, taxes, insufficient funds fees, etc.
  • PickPoint is not responsible for transfer fees, exchange fees, or other service charges requested by your financial institution when paying for PickPoint services.
  • PickPoint may change the subscription or service rates from time to time. Also, PickPoint can decide whether the new or old rates should apply for further payments. In cases where PickPoint decides that your service rates should change, we will notify you not less than 5 days prior to changing your subscription rates.

PickPoint Credits

  • PickPoint Credits represent the user's balance in the pickpoint.io system
  • The current balance is shown in the billing section of the user's dashboard
  • PickPoint Credits can be added by the PickPoint system, or in accordance with the SLA terms, or when changing the subscription plan.
  • When making any payments, the amount due is first debited from the available PickPoint Credits. If the amount of PickPoint Credits is insufficient, the balance of the amount is debited from the card.

Changing the Subscription Plan

In case of changing the subscription plan, a recalculation for the billing period is carried out. The remaining balance is the difference between the cost of the current subscription plan, cost of the plan for the past period, and the cost of extra requests made.

OutstandingBallance = CurrentPlanPrice - CurrentPlanPrice*UsedDays/TotalDays - OverlimitAmount*OverlimitPrice,
where:
  • CurrentPlanPrice - current subscription rate
  • NewPlanPrice - new subscription rate
  • TotalDays - total number of days in the current accounting period (depends on the number of days in the current month)
  • UsedDays - number of days that passed since the last payment was made
  • OverlimitAmount - number of extra requests made in the current period
  • OverlimitPrice - cost of extra request according to the current subscription rate

In case your OutstandingBalance is a positive amount, it gets converted to PickPoint Credits. If the PickPoint Credits is a negative number, which can happen when changing to a more expensive subscription plan, the resulting amount is debited from your card.

The new payment due date is set as the day after you changed the subscription plan.

Linking a Bank Card

To buy a paid subscription you need to link at least one bank card to your PickPoint account. Our website works with an online acquisition service which allows you to pay for our services with Visa and Mastercard bank cards. To add a card to your PickPoint account, go to the 'Billing' section in the dashboard menu. Open the 'Payment Methods' section and click the 'Add' button. You will be shown a secure window with a payment page, where you will need to provide your bank card information. For additional card holder authentication we use the 3D Secure protocol. If your bank supports this technology, you will be redirected to your bank's server for an additional identification procedure. If you need more information about the rules and methods of additional identification, please contact your bank.

In order to check the credit standing of a newly linked bank card, PickPoint will debit $1 from it and then cancel this operation. This way we check if the card is active, while keeping your card balance unchanged.

Security Guarantees

The CloudPayments processing center protects and processes your bank card information in accordance with the PCI DSS 3.0 security standard. The payment information is sent to the gateway using the SSL encryption technology. Further transfer of information is carried out through closed banking networks with the highest level of reliability. CloudPayments never gives your card information to third parties. For additional authentication of card holders, the 3D Secure protocol is used.

Safety of Online Payments

The personal information you provide (name, address, phone number, email, bank card number) is confidential and is not subject to disclosure. Your credit card details are transferred in encrypted format and are not stored on our web server.

The cloud payments service provider guarantees the safety of all processed online payments. All operations with bank cards are carried out in accordance with requirements of VISA International, MasterCard, and other payment systems. When transferring information, special technologies for secure online payments are used, and the processing of information is carried out on secure high-tech servers of the payment processing company.
