Installments calculated from the date of registration
Installments are calculated from the attendee's registration date. If installments are paused (due to insufficient funds), and at a later date the attendee then navigates to events.adventist.org.au/payinvoice and selects 'pay by installments' for the remaining balance, the installments will be from that later date.
Process where a scheduled credit card payment is declined
- If an installment payment 'bounces' due to 'insufficient funds', a statement is issued by email to the attendee "Scheduled Payment Error". After 24 hours another installment payment attempt will be made.
- If the attendee's bank returns a message other than 'insufficient funds' on the first attempt to pay an installment (e.g. stolen card/do not honour), or if the second installment payment attempt (24 hours after the first attempt) fails, both the attendee and the event organiser will receive an email advising the installment payment has failed. Installment payments will be paused at that point.
- To re-instate installments, the attendee may visit https://events.adventist.org.au/payinvoice/ to re-commence payment by installments or alternatively may pay the outstanding amount in full (so long as this is before the 'Final installment' date), or make alternate arrangements with the event organiser.
- Each transaction (successful or failed) appears on the attendee's Statement.
