This is a followup to our previous announcement regarding our new billing platform. For further background please see New Billing Platform . For information on how to access our website directly after the eBay App Center closes please see Deprecation of eBay Apps Center .
We have finally been given the green light by eBay to transfer App Center accounts’ billing to our own billing platform.
All users will need to set up a new payment method by going to our billing page at https://www.pricespectre.com/billing.php . Now that we are finally in control of our own billing subscribers should hopefully see most of the friction created by eBay finally removed.
Fees have not been changed for any of our subscribers but all subscribers are now moved to a billing cycle of the 1st of the month. We will however attempt to close open invoices faster than eBay who waited waited 2 weeks to charge and only made one attempt per month leading to many customers to be suspended or cancelled despite trying to keep current.
Below explains your first invoice depending on your prior billing cycle on eBay :
1st billing cycle
Your subscription with our billing platform will start on November 1st. Your invoice on November 1st covers your fees from October 16th – October 31st. You will receive a second invoice from eBay which covers the fees for October 1st – October 15th. This invoice from eBay will be the final invoice from the eBay App Center. All subsequent invoices will come through our billing platform.
15th billing cycle
Your subscription with our billing platform will start on November 1st. Your invoice on November 1st covers your fees from October 16th – October 31st. An invoice for October 1st – October 15th was previously generated on or around October 15th by eBay. This was the final invoice from eBay App Center. Automatic payment should have occurred on or before October 30th. If it did not please make sure to pay it to close out your billing. You are now moved to billing on the 1st so subsequent invoices will always occur on the 1st of the month. This eliminates the small variations above and below our quoted fees that 15th billing cycle subscribers saw.
