FAQs

Are there payment thresholds for my Post-Pay account?

Yes. For Self-serve Gemini accounts, the thresholds are $10, $25, $50, $250, $500 and $750. For all new Gemini sign-ups and those who have converted to self-serve, the initial threshold for ad spends is set at $25.

Each time your credit card is successfully charged for a spend amount, the threshold will automatically be bumped up to the next level. For example, once you pay $250, you’ll be bumped to $500 for your new threshold.

Note, however, that if you’re a self-serve Gemini advertiser, your threshold value cannot exceed $750.

If you spend $1500 per month with Gemini, you’ll see two equal payments of $750 each in your monthly statement, with two separate billing periods.

Will I get notifications when my credit card is charged?

No. You will not receive a notification when your credit card is charged. If you would like more information regarding charges, check your billing history in your Gemini account.

How are thresholds determined for my account?

If your Gemini account is self-serve, the thresholds are $25, $50, $250, $500 and $750. For all new Gemini sign-ups and those who have converted to self-serve, the initial threshold for ad spends is set at $25.

What if my credit card fails for the auto recharge?

If your credit card fails for the auto recharge, the secondary credit card on the account will utilized for the charge.

You will also see a notification when logging into the UI in the upper right hand corner. The bell icon will show a notification regarding the credit card charge failure.

What if my primary and secondary credit card fail to charge? If all of your credit cards fail to charge, you will need to add another credit card as a form of payment. Until that card is successfully charged, you will be unable to fund your account further and it may go dark.

How frequently can I expect my credit cards to be charged? Is it daily? weekly?

Your credit cards will be charged when you hit your threshold or within the 30-day time period – whichever comes first.

Can I specify other thresholds than the ones Gemini has specified. Can I change them?

No. You will not be able to change your thresholds.

When will Post Pay officially become the credit card payment type and prepay phased out?

The process of phasing out prepay as a payment type has already started. You can expect additional communication regarding official deadlines and plans soon.

If I decide to flip to post pay now, but have a prepay balance, what happens to that balance? The balance left from the prepay payment will be applied as a credit to your account. The prepay balance will first be used until depleted. Once that money is gone, the post pay plan will go into effect.

How is the spend accrued on my account? Is the budget amount based on monthly totals?

Will spend be accrued throughout the month and then reset at the first of the month?

Spend is accrued throughout the month. Unless, you hit your threshold before the end of the month, then you will get charged at that point for meeting the threshold.

How will I know if I have been successfully opted into Post Pay?

A welcome email will be sent to you notifying you that you have successfully opted in to Post Pay.
