Can I have more than one Billing Agreement?

Yes, we are able to support multiple Billing Agreements on the same account.
This allows the capability of assigning one Billing Agreement as the “Main” Agreement and if that one is not able to complete a payment, our automation would be able to pull from any others you have on file with us.

Thus making it even easier to ensure that your services are paid and do not run the risk of being interrupted. The highlighted entry would denote the “Main” Billing Agreement, which would be used for processing payments by default.

Can I Still Pay Manually?

Provided you want to do so early and your Billing Agreement is active, yes. You would need to visit your invoice page, select PayPal as the payment method and then click the “check out” button.
