Paying fees for non-public applications

When trying to order priority documents for a non-public application and to pay fee at the same time, I received the following message: "It is not possible to attach both fee payment instructions and non-public document to the same request".

The only way I found is to create two requests, the first one for ordering the documents (i.e. transmitting my letter to the EPO) and the second one to allow the EPO to debit our current account.

I wondered why it is impossible to do so with the OLF software, since it is possible to do so by simple letter or fax to the EPO...

Sincerely yours,
