Upgrades: You can upgrade your plan anytime. An upgrade takes place immediately and starts a new billing cycle. The unused days of service will be deduced from the price of the updated plan.
For the purpose of this example we will assume the prices:
- Crystal Premium: $419.52 for the entire year
- Silver Premium: $969.48 for the entire year
Tom purchased an annual Crystal Premium on March 15, 2019. On June 10th, Tom decides that his business needs more mailing power so he upgrades to Silver Premium.
The cost per day on a Crystal Premium Plan is $1.15. Tom has already used 88 days of his Crystal Premium plan and has 277 days remaining (or $318.55).
For the Silver Premium Plan upgrade, Tom will be charged:
$969.48 (Silver Prem Plan) - $318.55 (unused days on Crystal) = $650.93
Tom will start a new billing cycle (June 10th), and it will automatically renew on June 10th, 2020, unless he decides otherwise.
Downgrade options (to a lower plan or monthly payments) will only be available in the last month of your annual billing cycle. And downgrades are scheduled to take effect at the end of your current billing cycle.
