Scheduled Payments (Automatic Top-Ups)

With scheduled payments, funds are automatically transferred from a linked bank card to your account balance on a specific day each month.

Scheduled payments can be enabled from the control panel after linking a bank card.  This lets you configure top-ups so that your balance always has enough funds to continue using services.

Linking Bank Cards

You can link bank cards to your Selectel account to avoid manually reentering your card information every time you make a payment.

To link a card to your account:

  1. Open the Balance and payments menu from the upper right-hand corner of the screen.
  2. Open the Top up balance tab.
  3. Click Link a card in the Online payments section of the tab.

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

Please note: When linking a card, a verification payment of 1 ruble will be made. Once your card has been verified, this sum will be returned to your account.

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.

To unlink a card, open the card menu in the Your cards block and click Delete.

How Scheduled Payments Work

Payment from a linked card can be made for any amount between 100 and 15 000 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.

The amount charged for automatic top-ups is fixed and does 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 via email that a scheduled payment was created.

The entered amount will be debited from your bank card every month on the given day.

Changing, Disabling, and Deleting Payments

To change a scheduled payment (amount or date), open the scheduled payments menu and click Change payment.

To disable a scheduled payment, click Disable.

To delete it, click Delete.
