Your first bill
Often, with a new service, certain one-time fees can occur, as well as a prorated charge that covers from the date that service began. With billing in advance, if you start service in the middle of the month, you will be charged for the last half of the month service was provided, as well as the next full month in advance.
For instance, if you sign up for service on August 24th and your billing cycle is the 5th of every month, your first bill on September 5th will include your normal monthly rate PLUS the 13 days you had service between August 24th and September 5th. Essentially, you are always paying for your service in advance and your first month’s bill includes some service that you’ve already received.
This only happens when you first join Melita. Your bill settles down after that.
