In this post we will review the payment process for the Premium plan. The payment program is flexible and fair, and our prices are very attractive.
The service cost is calculated based on the number of websites in your account to include in the Premium plan. You build the package that suits you best. The basic package covers 3 websites in the Premium plan, for a period of 3, 6, 12 or 24 months. The longer the period, the lower the price per month. The following table demonstrates the service costs in relation to the selected period and number of websites in the Premium plan.
Example: for a period of 12 months, the cost is $10/month for 3 websites in the Premium plan. For 4 websites, the cost is $12.50/month, and so on.
The cost is just one parameter of the payment system. We wrote that the program is fair, and we mean it. As is known, every new website automatically gets access to the Premium features for 36 days (trial period). If the account owner purchases the Premium plan during the trial period, we will add the remaining time of the trial period to the Premium plan time, so that the trial period is not lost! For example, a website owner who opened an account received 36 days of trial period. 6 days later, they decide to purchase the Premium plan for 1 year time. We will add the remaining 30 days of the trial period to the year's plan, so that it will expire after a year and a month.
Sounds fair? That's not all. We know it's not easy to commit to long periods of time, and surely not knowing how many websites we will own in the future. For this reason, we let you switch quickly and easily from one plan to another, while refunding the remaining time of the old plan. For instance, you have purchased the Premium plan for 3 websites for a duration of a year for $120. After 2 months, you have decided to add a 4th website to the service. We will refund your account for $100 (10 remaining months), so that the new plan will cost just $50 for a year, starting to count from today ($150 minus $100). We deduct PayPal's processing fee from the refund amount.
For your convenience, we offer 2 types of payment: auto-renew payment, and one-time non-recurring payment. The recurring payment has a few advantages. Beyond the hassle involved in manual renewal which is spared, the first installment is not processed immediately, but only when the account's trial period expires, so that if you have 14 days remaining to the trial period and you purchased the Premium plan now, the first installment will be collected only 14 days from now. This is as opposed to the one-time non-recurring payment, which is processed right away, and the trial period is added to the plan time. Immediately after each payment you receive an email with the payment details, so that everything is transparent and straightforward. The recurring payment can be stopped anytime. When stopping a recurring payment, your account will remain in the Premium plan for the duration covered by the last payment, and then will be automatically switched to the free plan.
The payment system development took a considerable amount of time, because we did not want to compromise on any option. We want to give you the best value for your money, and maximum control on the payment type, with the flexibility to make changes and not be bound to a plan that no longer suits your needs. In fact, we don't know of any other service which offers such flexibility, and we hope that the investment will pay off - for both sides.
