How do Recurring Payments work?

Can I cancel the Recurring Payment after it is set up?
Yes! You can cancel a Recurring Payment, go to the Account Summary page. Locate the recurring payment you want to remove and click on the confirmation number. Select the delete button and confirm that you want to remove this recurring payment. NOTE: This will delete the entire series of recurring payments scheduled.
Can I make other payments even though I have a Recurring Payment in place?
Yes, you may set up additional One Timepayments alongside your recurring payment. Simply select the Schedule Payment and enter details of the payment you'd like to make.
When will my payments be applied?
