When a contributor is added to the account, your payment method on record is automatically billed a pro-rated amount for that seat based on your billing cycle and subscription. This way, you're only charged for contributors based on how long they're in that seat, even if they're added mid-month or mid-year.
Once the pro-rated amount has been charged, the monthly or annual charges will update to reflect the new number of contributor seats for your organization.
- Example billing scenario for an annual Business subscription. Propeller, Inc. subscribed on January 1 to the annual Business plan for a team of 5, making their first bill 900 USD. On March 1, Propeller adds 2 new members as contributors to their organization and they're automatically charged an additional 300 USD for the remainder of the annual billing cycle for the new contributors. The following annual bill will update to 1,200 USD.
- Example billing scenario for a monthly Starter subscription. Propeller, Inc. subscribed on January 1 to the monthly Starter plan for a team of 5, making their first bill 50 USD. On March 1, Propeller adds 1 new member as a contributor to the organization and they're automatically charged an additional 10 USD for the month for the new contributor. The monthly bill will update to 60 USD each month moving forward.
The same logic applies if you remove a contributor from your organization; we credit your account based on the remaining time in the billing cycle. Credits are automatically applied to your next invoice before a new charge is made, so you don't have to do anything to use it! 🎉
