Billing FAQs

Am I charged for toll-free calls? 

By default, Nextiva charges 2.5 cents per minute for inbound calls only. If you forward your toll-free number, the number will still accrue charges for each minute the call is transmitted until the call ends.

How does Nextiva bill for services?

Nextiva automatically processes the monthly, quarterly, or annual renewal at the start of the billing cycle. The billing cycle date is the day the account was created with Nextiva. The renewal is charged to the payment method on file automatically, per Nextiva’s Terms and Conditions.

How am I notified of my renewal?

The billing email address on file will receive a pro-forma invoice seven days to the renewal date. The pro-forma invoice allows customers to view the charges that will automatically be billed on the renewal date. The pro-forma invoice will include the toll-free and credit usage on the account as of that date, if applicable. The total amount due may change if additional toll-free, international, or minute usage fees are accrued in the interim. The invoice may also alter if other product offerings are added to the account.

Is a receipt provided after my account renewal?

Once the account has successfully renewed, Nextiva automatically sends a copy of the receipt to the billing email on file.

Can a partial payment be applied to my renewal?

Partial payments are not accepted at this time. The total renewal amount is due on the billing cycle renewal date. If payment is not received within seven business days of the renewal date, service may be affected.

Can my renewal be processed on two different credit cards?

Partial payments on two different cards are not accepted at this time. Renewals can only be processed on one credit card for the full amount owed.

What If there is a problem with my credit card?

If the renewal cannot be processed for any reason, we will notify customers immediately via email. The payment process will be reattempted the next day, continuing for seven days before the service may be interrupted. If Nextiva does not receive a payment within seven days, the account may be disabled. To avoid a suspension of service, it is essential to make sure the credit card information is correct, and funds are available.

Why does Nextiva charge a regulatory recovery fee?

VoIP service is regulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), but as an information service rather than a telephone service. Thus, it is regulated in a different, less comprehensive way than traditional telephone service. The FCC has also precluded state authorities from regulating certain aspects of VoIP services in the same way as traditional telephone services. However, the FCC has indicated that states may still impose specific requirements on VoIP providers and may continue to impose appropriate sales use and telephone taxes.

What is the universal service fee?

All phone customers are charged the Universal Service Fee (USF). The rate is regulated by the FCC and changes quarterly. To view the USF rate for the current quarter, click here.

What if I am tax exempt?

Please contact a member of our Amazing Billing team by emailing [email protected] to set up tax-exempt status. Please note, customers with tax-exempt status are still responsible for service fees, including the RRF and USF fees. Once the necessary paperwork is received, customers will not be required to pay sales or excise tax.

What is a CVV? What does CVV stand for?

The Card Verification Value (CVV) is a 3, 4 or 5-digit code found on the front or back of a debit or credit card.

A CVV code is often asked for by merchants to secure transactions occurring over the Internet, email, fax, or over the phone. This is an extra security step Nextiva uses when signing up new customers. It is typically a 3-digit number on the back of Visa, MasterCard, and Discover cards, and a 4-digit number on the front of American Express cards.
