E-billing FAQ’s

  • Why the abbreviated 3 month billing cycle?
    In order to better serve our members, the Association is working to create more convenient payment options. To accomplish this, the current MLS/MRED billing will be an abbreviated billing period of 3 months, July - September.
  • If I wish, Can I pay for my MRED/MLS service past September?
    We cannot accept payment for MRED/MLS Services after September. In order to better serve our members, the Association is working to create more convenient payment options. To accomplish this, we need to keep all members on the same abbreviated billing cycle, of 3 months, July - September.
  • How does e-billing work?
    You will receive your MLS invoice and Annual Dues invoice via e-mail to your specified e-mail address. This e-mail will include a link to a PDF of your invoice as well as a link to pay your invoice online at with your credit card. The first MLS/MRED invoice for July - September was sent on May 1,2009
