TeraCLOUD Payment Method
Payment for TeraCLOUD capacity upgrades is handled through PayPal subscriptions (automatic recurring payments).
A valid PayPal account is required for capacity upgrades.
For more information about PayPal, or to sign up for an account, please refer to the PayPal website.
The timing of payment for capacity upgrades is as follows.
- First payment: Date of capacity upgrade
- Subsequent payments
- Monthly subscriptions: One month from the previous payment date
- Yearly subscriptions: One year from the previous payment date
The next payment date is also listed in the confirmation email from PayPal.
- The payment date may vary slightly depending on PayPal's system.
Multiple Capacity Upgrades
Multiple simultaneous capacity upgrades are possible with TeraCLOUD.
When multiple capacity upgrades are purchased, the following details apply.
- Usable Capacity: Total available capacity at the time of calculation
- Payment Date: Date of payment for each individual capacity upgrade
Changing Upgrade Capacity
It is not possible to directly modify the capacity or payment period of upgrades.
However, it is possible to change the contents of capacity upgrades by exchanging one PayPal subscription for another, as follows.
- From the TeraCLOUD upgrade screen, select the capacity and payment method reflecting the desired change and perform a capacity upgrade.
- After confirming that the desired upgrade is complete, cancel the previous upgrade subscription through PayPal.
- If the PayPal subscription is canceled, the corresponding TeraCLOUD capacity upgrade will deactivate at the end of the current subscription period.
- If all paid capacity upgrades associated to an account deactivate, the account will revert to a free account.
In this event, any bonuses (such as long-term incremental bonuses) that are only valid for paid accounts will be voided. Please exercise due caution with upgrade payment settings.
