Yes, while on the annual pre-pay plan, any additional users or stores on your account are discounted and billed for the entire year.

If I cancel will I be refunded?

We will prorate the charges for the remainder of the year once you have upgraded.

For example:

If you paid for the yearly Basic plan, then upgraded to the Plus plan partway through the year, you would be on the Plus plan for the following months.

  • Basic plan for the year is $295.80.
  • If you have spent 6 months on the yearly Basic plan, you have used $147.90 and have $147.90 remaining.
  • Plus plan for the next month is $49. 
  • Apply the credit for unused time on Basic ($49 - $147.90) and the remaining credit would be $98.90.
  • The remaining credit will be drawn from each month until fully used.

Can I get EasyReferal credits while on Annual Prepay?

Yes. For each EasyReferral credit that you redeem, you will receive a 1/12th credit towards your next annual bill.

For example:

If you paid for the yearly Plus plan and then referred a new account for an EasyReferral credit, you would see your next bill reduced by 1/12th:

  • Plus plan for the year is $499.92.
  • EasyReferral credit is equal to 1/12th ($499.92/12) or $41.66.
  • The credit of $41.66 will be applied towards your next bill. 
  • At the start of your next annual billing cycle, you will be billed the difference ($499.92-$41.66) of $458.26.

With all EasyReferral credits, you can accrue multiple credits, one for each referral. Each credit will be equal to 1/12th of the originally Annual Prepay amount. All credits accrued over the year will be applied towards the subsequent annual bill. Learn more about EasyReferral.
