Failed payments

What happens when an automated payment fails?

If the recurring payment for your Buzzspark Plan fails, the account owner and all account users with the Billing role will automatically be notified via email.

Your account will remain fully operational for a further 2-day grace period, during which you can log into your account and manually pay outstanding invoices.

What happens after the grace period?

At the end of the 2-day grace period, your existing subscription will expire. Your account will remain accessible for a further 30 days, however all features such as aggregation of new content, Displays, etc. will be disabled. You can log in to your account and upgrade an expired account at any point during this timeframe, or you can delete the account if it is no longer required.

30-days after the account expires, the account and all its data will be automatically and permanently deleted.
