Billing Cycle Explained

Sign Up (i.e Day 1)

The users are provided an option to select a product package as part of the signup process. In case you did get the option, then you are automatically subscribed to the Starter package. The account is provided with a 30 day free trial period to allow the super admin to configure the account to their organizational needs and evaluate Empuls with a few initial users.
The super admin can add his billing information by navigating to the Billing and Subscriptions page under the Platform Settings menu to set up their billing details. The user is required to provide Address, Card Information, and Tax id to commit to using the Empuls product. An intermediate reminder will be sent in case no card details are linked to your account.
Alternatively, the super admin can cancel the subscription to stop using the Empuls platform.

Trial Period Ends (Day 30)

Once the trial period ends, an invoice for the next month is generated and shared with the Super Admin. This invoice can be paid in the next 30 days for continued usage of Empuls. It can be paid by using the Pay Now option or by adding card details on the Billing & Subscription page.
Invoice Value =
InvoiceValue=(Pricing/user/month)βˆ—(NumberofEmployees)Invoice Value = (Pricing/user/month) * (Number of Employees)
The account will be suspended if the invoice remains unpaid for more than 30 days.

The Next Invoice (Day 60)

The invoice for the next month is generated only if the invoice for the previous month is paid. The invoice generated will include
A)Estimated usage for the next month calculated as per the formula above
B)Prorated usage from the previous month factors the addition of any new users during the previous month after the previous month's invoice was generated. The system is configured to calculate the prorated usage according to the pricing plan selected.
For e.g: 10 new users were added on the 15th day of the previous month. The prorated cost will be $15 i.e ($3/30*15)*(10). The formula for calculating the prorated cost is provided below.
ProratedCost=(Costperdayβˆ—numberofdaysused)βˆ—(Noofusersadded)Prorated Cost = (Cost per day * number of days used) *(No of users added)
In case the user accounts are disabled, the number of users added will be factored as a negative value.
