Step 5: Pay for Your Order
Services can be paid for using your account balance or a separate online payment.
1. Your account balance is a total of your cash account balance and credit account balance. If your order amount does not exceed your account balance, fees will first be deducted from your cash account balance, then from your credit account balance. If your order amount is greater then your total account balance, please pay online.
Example 1: Suppose that your cash account balance is 100 dollars and the credit account balance is 1000 dollars. $100 will be deducted from the cash account and $200 from the credit account when you select Balance for an order of $300.
Example 2: Suppose that your cash account has no balance and the credit account balance is $1000. $300 dollars will be deducted from the credit account when you select Balance for an order of $300.
2. If you choose online payment, you need to link a bank card to your account.
Unpaid fees will be collected and billed to your account on the third of every month. These fees will first be deducted from your credit balance, before being deducted from the bank card bound to your account.
