SEOWebHosting Community Newsletter Volume 1, Issue 5

WE NOW ACCEPT AMEX! now accepts American Express within our billing system directly. You can now pay due invoices with your Amex, if you’d like to do so.  You can also set up your Client Area for future, recurring Amex payments if you’d like to do so.  When you pull up your unpaid invoice within the Client Area, you’ll see two CC payment methods: credit card (one-time) and credit card (recurring).  Paying using the “one-time” method will not save your card on file anywhere.  Paying using the “recurring” method will save your card number in our payment gateway, making automatic payments possible.*
