If your outlet ID begins with PZL you will be billed monthly - the date will depend on when your MID was approved. You'll then be debited around 10 days after your invoice is issued. This will detailed be on your invoice.

Why do I get two different bills?

When you join us, you have 2 separate contracts, which is why you will get two different bills. One from us, and one from your acquirer, such as Barclaycard, Elavon or Cashflows.

The bill from us will cover the cost of your products and equipment, including terminal hire, online services, virtual terminals, PCI, EPOS and any other product that you take with us.

The second is from your acquirer and this will cover the cost to process your transactions.

It's likely that these bills will arrive at different times of the month.
