I received a Mail today from both PayPal and Cloudflare.
PayPal send me a mail, telling me that I authorized a payment for Cloudflare, which is fine and expected as Cloudflare informed me about an upcoming Domain renewal (I use Cloudflare Registrar).
The mail from Cloudflare however was confusing. In it they told me that the auto-renewal failed and that I should try to manually renew because they won’t attempt this again.
So I logged into my account went to the registrar tab of my domain and saw the note that my contact details aren’t up to date. No problem, quickly updated it, yet this banner stayed.
Not only that but manually adding another year told me that the domain would end in April of 2023… And trying to find info about it’s current expirey time made it more confusing because on one place does it tell me it will end in April 2021, while on another it tells me that the bill is paid (That there aren’t any open bills to pay) and that the domain expires in 2022.
Checking my recent payment history only showed a payment from January this year.
I now quickly payed for an extra year (So it expires in 2023) just to not fear to lose the domain, but this is a rather weird and annoying experience I made with Cloudflare’s payment setup.
Where exactly do I see all my recent payments and where can I check currently stuck payments or similar?
