The default payment plan for Wix domain subscriptions is autorenewal. If your domain is on a yearly renewal cycle, the payment will be attempted two days before the anniversary of your original payment. If the initial payment attempt fails, your domain name will expire on the anniversary of your original payment and your Wix site will no longer be accessible through the domain name.
 

Even though the domain name will have expired, the Wix domain subscription will remain active and our system will continue to attempt to collect payment. If payment is made successfully within the 30 day grace period, your domain name will be reactivated.

 

If payment is not made within the 30 day grace period, your domain name will be cancelled and will enter a redemption period lasting approximately 35 days. The redemption period is designed to give domain owners one last chance to retain their domain name before it becomes publicly available, however the cost of retrieving a domain during the redemption period is high ($250).

 

We strongly advise that users try to resolve payment issues before the domain enters the redemption period.

 

If you are unsure why your payments have failed, please contact us and we will assist you.

    I renewed my subscription but my site at www.iampaulyoder.com is crashing each time I try to access it. It claims that wix gave me that domain, but this is what I get when I try to acess my wix link. This site is on all my business cards and such. Please help!

      I have been able to recreate the issue.

       

      Please note that your pointing configuration in your registrar (not Wix, but your actual domain host) is incorrect.

      Two things:

      1) I cannot understand your response. Recreating an issue is a bad thing. "Pointing configuration" isn't even a thing at all.

      2) I bought my domain on wix. I believe that makes wix my domain host.

      Hi,

      Your domain was purchased through Wix on: 25/5/2013, however your domain was not renewed on: 25/5/2014 as your credit card was declined.

      Your domain subscription was canceled.

       

      In general if a domain name has expired, the Wix domain subscription will remain active and our system will continue to attempt to collect payment. If payment is made successfully within the 30 day grace period, your domain name will be reactivated.

       

      If payment is not made within the 30 day grace period, your domain name will be cancelled and will enter a redemption period lasting approximately 35 days. The redemption period is designed to give domain owners one last chance to retain their domain name before it becomes publicly available, however the cost of retrieving a domain during the redemption period is high ($250).

       

      If you do not want to pay 250 $ to release your domain, you can wait 70 days from the moment your domain was canceled and repurchased the domain again from Wix.

      Okay. I renewed my subscription almost a week ago, and it's still not working. Does it usually take this long for a payment to go through?

      Hello,

       

      Please make sure you have properly inserted payment details, as I can see you have not yet paid for your domain.

      You can see all the relevant payment details when mouseovering the login drop-down menu on the top right end of the page (Hello, iampaulyoder) > Billing & Payment.

      2. Go to My Sites > click the user panel on the top right of the page > click Billing and Payment.
      3. From Billing and Payment, next to your plan, click Manage.
      4. Next to Invoices, click View invoices.
      5. Click an invoice from the list to view it.

      Your invoice opens in a new browser window/tab.

    For some reason the auto payment failed.

    I have used a different card (a debit card), but this has also failed. I know there is sufficient funds I have just checked it.

    Now what should I do, my site is down.

    • Barrios Wix Team

      Replied by Barrios July 9, 2014

      Hi,

       

      The initial or renewal payment for your Wix domain or premium plan may have failed due to one of the following reasons:

      The payment has been declined by your credit card provider

      - The credit card provided has expired or has insufficient funds

      - The credit card number provided is invalid

      - The credit card provided has not been approved for recurring payments 

       

      Please contact your bank/credit card company to check the reason for the failure, or add an alternate card.

      Note: If your renewal payment is not successful your domain name will expire and you will not be able to access your website via this domain.

       

      Feel free to contacts us should you have any further questions.

      Many thanks, Barrios

      It appears that your domain expired on the 29th of May 2014.

      Although the domain name expired, the Wix domain subscription will still remain active and our system will continue to attempt the payment. If you are unsure why the payments are failing, please contact us.

      If payment is made within 30 days of the expiration date, your domain name will be reactivated. Please see the best reply above regarding the possible renewal times.
