Question Application for ECMFG Certification confusion

Hello!

I tried to file my Application for ECFMG Certification on the 25th June 2012, but unfortunately, when it came to paying the appropriate fee (50USD), I tried to use a prepaid credit card that apparently was not recognizable. Seeing that my efforts to finish the application were to no avail, I closed the webpage. Later on, I logged in on OASIS, and saw that my financial account was charged with 50USD. Should I assume that this meant that my application was filed, yet halted by my inability to pay the relevant fee?

In any case, on the early hours of the 26th of June, I managed to procure a valid credit card which I used successfully to make a payment of 50USD on my ECFMG financial account, via OASIS. Thus, the balance of the account was set to 0USD. However, under the tab 'Application For ECFMG Certification Information' on my OASIS personal page, there is no information about any submitted application (i.e. all fields are blank). Will this tab be filled after my application has been approved or does this mean that no application was submitted whatsoever, despite me being charged 50USD? If the latter is true, should I proceed with a new Application for ECFMG Certification?

I have sent a similar inquire to the ECFMG via e-mail, yet due to heavy workload, I have been informed that I must wait several weeks before getting an official answer... So, any ideas anyone? Thanks in advance!

ECFMG email is a slow and painful process. I recommend you give them a call tomorrow morning and they should know if you have succeeded or not.
