Credit purchases and top-ups

Lago automatically generates an invoice for each purchase. Taxes do not apply to credit purchases, which are considered as advance payments.

Payment must be made in order for credits to be added to the customer’s wallet (i.e. the status of the invoice must be succeeded).

Setup recurring top-ups

When creating or editing a wallet, you have the option to enable recurring top-ups based on either an interval or a threshold trigger.

Interval trigger

For an interval trigger, specify the frequency of the automatic top-up: weekly, monthly, quarterly or yearly.

Once the interval is defined, the system will automatically perform a top-up:

  • Weekly, on the same day each week (e.g., every Monday).
  • Monthly, on the same date each month (e.g., every 2nd of the month).
  • Quarterly, on the same date every three months (e.g., every 2nd of the quarter).
  • Yearly, on the same date every year (e.g., every 2nd of January).
The reference day for the top-up is determined by the wallet creation date.

With a threshold trigger, set a specific number of credits that will trigger an automatic top-up. Lago monitors the ongoing balance, and if it falls below the defined credit threshold, an automatic top-up is initiated.
