I am going to try to keep this as generic as possible about a situation that happened to me today.
When I signed up for a service, there were two ways to pay. One way was automatic, the other way was manual. The automatic payment will send you an invoice, then charge your payment (card) a few minutes later ... 10 days before the due date. That part is ok.
I specifically signed up for the manual pay. Email stating thus. A month later, I was hit with auto pay. Company (so far) cannot do anything about it.
Is this normal in the web hosting industry? This is the first time I ran across this issue (transferred from manual pay to auto pay with no notice).
