  1. Credit card numbers are not saved after the first online payment.  You have the following options:
    • Call the AMTA office at 301-589-3300 and provide a credit card number for the file so it can be run every 30 days (15th or 30th of each month) until all installment payments are complete.
    • Go online and make a payment through your AMTA member account each month.  Log in with your email address and password, go to “my account,” “my transactions” and then “pay open orders”.  Make sure the last page reflects the installment amount and not the full amount (click the installment box).
    • Call the AMTA office once a month with your credit card number.
    • Send a monthly check for the payment installment amount until all installments are paid. Send to 10125 Colesville Rd.,#136, Silver Spring, MD 20901.
