3Play Media Billing and Invoices

Invoice Statuses

Invoices are organized into 3 states: Current, Closed/Unpaid, and Paid.

Invoice Statuses

Current Invoice

This state means the invoice is open and accruing charges.
Once a request or service is completed it is listed as a line item in your current invoice. 
Invoices are listed as Current until the last day of each month when they automatically close and move to the Closed/Unpaid state.

Closed Unpaid Invoices

This state means the invoice is no longer accruing charges and is ready to be paid.
All invoices move to the Closed/Unpaid state on the last day of each month.
When an invoice moves to Closed/Unpaid all billing contacts will receive an email with a PDF copy of the invoice.

Paid Invoices

Invoices are marked as paid upon receipt of a cheque or wire payment or after a successful payment by credit card through the 3Play Media account.


Payment Methods

Credit Card

Multiple credit cards can be added and saved to your account.
3Play Media accepts MasterCard, Visa, and American Express.
Unfortunately payments cannot be made with a Discover credit card.

Use a stored credit card to pay an invoice manually or set up an Autopay option with a specific credit card.
When Autopay is set up, a current invoice is automatically paid on the last day of each month when the current invoice closes and then moves to the Paid state automatically.
Partial payments can be made manually using a credit card.

See more information on how to pay by credit card.


Closed/Unpaid invoices can be paid by check,
BEFORE mailing your payment please manually mark your invoice as Closed/Unpaid.
Upon receipt of a check/cheque, this Closed/Unpaid invoice will move to the Paid state.

See more information on how to manually close an invoice and pay by check.
