    Is there a way to change my billing dates on my UO accounts so they all come out on the same day?

    The only thing I can think of is to cancel them and then restart them all on the day I want, but that involves account down time that I was hoping to avoid.

    That's the only way I can think of to make them match up. I've been thinking about doing the same thing. One of mine is the 7th of the month, the other the 22nd. I'd rather have them both on the same date, but like you I don't really want to have one of my accounts down for nearly 2 weeks.

    I did the exact same thing to sync my account paymnent dates. Had to bite the bullet and had about 10 days down time on one account but I cant think of any other way to do it.

    Hmm. On the other hand if you REALLY didnt want downtime then there is a way the more I think about it.... but as with many things theres a $$$ price...

    To take Black Suns example of 7th and 22nd of the month ... On 22nd of the monthyou could cancel the one that was paid on the 7th, choose the option to NOT use any remaining game time and then reactivate it the same day. No down time, the accounts are in sync, but the downside you lose the gametime that you would have had on the cancelled account between 23rd of month and 7th of next month.

    Does that make sense?

    While I understand the method, it doesn't make "cents" to do that. :lol:

    Heh heh. I suppose it all depends whether your willing to pay the price of half a months UO subscription in order to have the dates aligned. I probably would have done it if id thought of it at the time...

    Aye I know about the dollar not worried about that.

    Just inherited some accounts and would like my billing dates to be closer together.

    You tried calling Customer Support and seeing if they can move the latter billing date up?

    Surely a call to CS should be able to do that... right?

    I agree with Black Sun, shut them down with the time left till off option then wait till the day you want the billing to happen on. I do. Make sure you got a day or 2 lea way so if the funds are not there you got time. Dont forget they will post billing to the card you use 7-10 days in advance so dont get freeked out if you see alot of pending on your bank page, not sure about your bank holding those funds hostage till the billing clears so check with your branch to be sure.

    I'd rather deal with a week or two of downtime.
