Invoices

Your invoice is generated at the end of each month. The amount is charged automatically to the default credit card, and the invoice and receipt are emailed to the address on the billing profile. If you are using a payment method other than credit card, the invoice will be settled out of band.

Invoices lists your active and past invoices, along with a running total of usage for the current billing period. To review a specific invoice, select it in Invoice History.
