We also offer postal invoices for your account. Postal invoices are sent approximately 14 days before your due date.

Accounts are invoiced and due in advance of service. Payment is due no later than the expiration date indicated on the customer invoice. Failing to make payments within 14 days after being past due will result in the account being suspended automatically by our billing software. There will also be a $10.00 late payment fee for all delinquent accounts.
If the subscriber’s check is returned to us unpaid the account is immediately in default of payment and subject to an insufficient funds fee of $20.00. Accounts in default of payment are subject to an interruption or termination of service without notice. An interruption or termination of service due to an account being in default does not relieve the subscriber from the obligation to pay any past due account charges.
Accounts in default for more than 45 days are subject to termination and submission to a collection agency and accruing a collection fee of $15, an interest charge of 1.5% per month on the outstanding balance. If the subscriber defaults in the payment of any amounts owed thereafter, they agree to pay Succeed.Net its actual expenses, including attorney and collection agency fees, incurred in enforcing its rights under this billing policy.
The subscriber is responsible for any additional charges from usage limit overages that they may have incurred over the included usage they have subscribed to. Succeed.Net is not responsible for ensuring that the subscriber stays within the subscribed usage limits.
