Discounts For Different Billing Periods

Credit Limit

The control panel accumulates user fees up to a certain amount before credit card payment users get charged and check payment users get barred from buying more resources. Credit limit is set in the plan and can be increased (decreased) for individual accounts and reset for all users in the system in one go.

 

Billing Profiles

Users can create and switch between multiple billing profiles. One billing profile can be used for several accounts. Trial users don't have billing profiles.

 

Refunds

The control panel allows complete refunds during the specified initial period and partial refunds after this period has expired. The duration of the period and refund percentage is configurable from the control panel. Only the latest billing period/month recurrent charges can be refunded, while as other charges can be returned by crediting accounts manually.
