@MikeL, If your auto pay didn't go through yesterday, and your card was fine, please get in touch with the moderators team (via private message), so they can correct the situation. There have been some recent hiccups with the auto renewal system of late.
I have learned not to rely on autopay when it comes to renewing..
This is unfortunate to hear. I'm always a bit confused about the number of individuals who consistently have issues with autopay. I've been with PM for 2.5 years and have never had an issue with autopay. The closest call I had was when I realised that my CC # had changed and I updated the card the day before without hiccup for autopay. The same experience has been with my wife's account and so far with the friends I help manage their PM accounts as well. I still monitor autopayments every month just to be sure.
If anyone finds autopay this unreliable, I would continue contacting the moderators to look into it as I don't believe this is the norm, it is possible something is wrong with your account or payment info.
