Billing procedure

APNIC membership terms are effective for one year. APNIC Members must renew their membership every 12 months to keep the Membership account open.

  • Please include the invoice number and membership account name in the payment details to avoid processing delays
  • Payment may be made by either wire transfer, or bank draft
  • Payment can also be made via secure online credit card. Payment is processed in the AUD equivalent as at the day of processing. A secure server is available for submitting your credit card details.

Membership expiration

An annual membership renewal reminder is emailed to all APNIC Members approximately 30 days before the membership expiry date.

The invoice for membership renewal and the payment instruction letter is emailed to Members the day after the account expiration date.

  • The membership fee is based on the account’s Internet resource holdings as of the membership anniversary date.
  • A hard copy of the invoice may also be obtained via MyAPNIC under Administration > billing history or upon request.

All payments are due within 30 days of the membership expiry date, or upon receipt of the invoice.

Failure to pay APNIC membership fees will result in suspension of services and a withdrawal of all resources previously allocated.
