About your Nexcess credit balance
The account credit balance is a balance on your Nexcess account that you may have received or earned in different ways. You might have redeemed a Nexcess promo code, or, most likely, earned credit via our affiliate program.
Account credit is internal to Nexcess. It is not something you can add to or reload. This credit is only usable for paying your invoice online at Nexcess and is non-transferable. Let's take a look at how to check your credit balance.

Missing Nexcess credits in your account?
If you think you should have credits, but none are showing in your account, please double check that you are signed into the correct Nexcess account.

About your Nexcess billing credits
There are some things to keep in mind about your Nexcess billing credits. The most important being is that if you have a positive credit balance, it will be applied before your payment method is charged. If your invoice is ever much less than you expect, checking your account's history is a great place to start your investigation.
There are many ways to pay your account balance. For example, you can set up a prepaid plan, so you never forget to pay the invoice. You may also pay one invoice at a time with your account credit, a credit card, or with PayPal. You can learn more about how to pay your invoice with an account credit in knowledge library. If you need further assistance in paying your invoice, you can learn how to pay with a credit card or how to pay with PayPal online as well.
As previously mentioned, you can earn account credits via our affiliate program. The Nexcess affiliate program pays $150 per converted customer from your affiliate links or pages. Nexcess also will pay 50% more if the converted plan is prepaid. It might take some time for your referral to make up their mind, and that's ok!
