  • Note: Pre-Authorizations are created only if invoice that is paid consist recurring service, otherwise one-off payment is requested
  • Direct Debit payment can take up to 5 business days, invoice in HostBill will remain unpaid for this period
  • If you wish your client's invoices to be marked as Paid immediatelly after submitting payment, enable Skip delay option in module configuration
  • Invoices containing items with pre-authorization set up will be automatically charged by HostBill cron
