If a payment is due on a date which doesn’t exist in a month, such as the 31st February, then payment will be taken on the last day of that month.
We’ll send you a reminder by email or SMS 10 days before your payment is due detailing the amount of your payment, the payment due date and the funding instrument the payment will be taken from.
