Scheduled Payments (Automatic Top-Ups)

Scheduled payments help ensure your balance always has enough funds to pay for your services.

Scheduled payments can be enabled from the control panel after saving a bank card. The sum you enter will be automatically transferred from the "remembered" bank card every month on a user-defined day to the Main Balance.

Saving Bank Cards

To save a bank card, choose the Bank Card payment method while topping up your balance and check Remember my card.

Cards usually take ten minutes to process. Afterwards, it will appear in your list of available payment options.

Please note that Selectel does not store your bank card information. This data is transferred and saved in the PayU international processing center payment system. This is a highly secure system that holds the highest rated PCI DSS certification available.

Processing takes an average of 10 minutes. Afterwards, you will find your card on the list of available payment methods. This allows you to quickly add funds to your account without having to reenter your card information.

How Scheduled Payments Work

The minimum amount for scheduled payments is 100 rubles.

You will receive notification via email after each successful payment.

If you do not have enough funds on your card to make a payment, no charge will be made and you will be notified via email.

Please note the following:

  1. If payment fails for any reason, no other attempt will be made.
  2. After ensuring you have enough funds on your bank card, you must manually top up your balance in the control panel.
  3. Provided enough funds are on the bank card, automatic top-ups will resume as normal the following month.

Scheduled payment amounts are fixed and do not automatically change to meet monthly usage. In other words, if your monthly expenses rise or fall for any reason (expense optimization, modified resources, etc.), your bank card will be charged the same amount on the same date. To modify this amount, you will have to change your scheduled payment settings.

Creating Scheduled Payments

To create a scheduled payment:

  1. Open the card menu.

  2. Click Create scheduled payment.

  3. Enter the amount and date of the payment.

In the Your cards block, a Scheduled payments block will be displayed with information about the payment amount and day. You will be notified by email each time a scheduled payment is created.
