If I choose monthly payments as my payment option, how does the automatic billing work?

The Automatic Billing Plan (recurring billing) allows guests to establish an evenly divided payment schedule up front. Zumba then automatically charges the guest’s authorized credit card for the applicable charges on the scheduled dates (the 30th or the 15th of every month depending on when you originally registered). Guests who wish to enroll in the Automatic Billing Plan will be required to make the initial deposit at the time of registration, and then authorize in advance monthly payments to be processed on the the 30th or the 15th of every month depending on when you originally registered. Because the payments are evenly divided, guests are not faced with a large final payment. There is no additional charge for selecting the Automatic Billing Plan. Final payment will be processed on March 1st, 2017.
