Prepay is a payment option that gives Method customers the option to pay for 12 months of Method up front, for a discount.
When you select the Prepay option, we calculate 12 months at your current subscription amount. We then take off a 10% discount and that is what you will get charged. This amount is now your balance, and each month this balance will go down the amount of your current subscription (less a 10% discount).
If the details of the subscription change (ie. add/decrease licenses or add/decrease packs or metered usage such as portals) the monthly billing changes, and the Prepay balance is deducted accordingly.
You will see a link on your monthly payment receipt if you qualify.
We will automatically renew (and charge) the subscription when the Prepay balance runs out. The amount charged will be 12 months (less the discount) on your current subscription amount.
If necessary, you can opt-out of automatic renewal.
Balances will expire within 18 months of original purchase. Learn more.
Method provides the choice between monthly and prepaid (Prepay) payment plans. There may be a price difference between the two plans. You are free to choose whichever option that best suits your needs.
Prepay Balance is not considered a credit and hence is not eligible for a refund. After enrolling in the Prepay plan, within the Prepay Grace Period, you may switch back to monthly billing. We will make this switch and refund any remaining paid balance (prorated on the daily basis) minus any applicable discount. Please contact us if you need to make the switch back to monthly.
Method believes in providing software that fits your ever evolving needs. Method allows you to change your subscription (including but not limited to number of users, number and types of packs, metered usage etc.) as you see fit and as your needs change.
At any time, you may change the usage of your Method products.
For Prepay plan, once a month, on your Monthly Billing Date, we calculate your Current Subscription Price. This will be deducted from the Prepay Balance (taking into account discount and taxes) until it is fully used up, as long as it’s within the time specified by the Balance Expiration policy.
If your usage (for example, numbers of users) has increased, your monthly deductions will increase accordingly and your balance may be depleted before the annual anniversary date. When your balance runs outs, we will automatically renew your Prepay Plan and charge a payment accordingly. Correspondingly, if your usage has decreased, your anniversary will be delayed up to the period specified in the Balance Expiration policy.
As your Monthly Subscription Price changes, your balance will be charged accordingly.
Your annual prepaid balance expires 18 months from when you last enrolled into Prepay plan or the last past Prepay Renewal Date. Prepay Balance is not credit and hence not eligible for refund or carry forward.
For example, if your usage (such as number of users, packs and other metered usage) dramatically declines after you enroll such that your prepaid anniversary date is delayed by more than 6 months past the initial 12 month period, you may have some balance outstanding at the end of 18 months. At this time, this balance will expire.
For Method accounts enrolled in the Prepay Plan, applicable prices of packs installed during enrollment or renewal are guaranteed for the duration of the initial balance (typically a year but may be shorter or longer as defined in the Balance Expiration policy.)
Any Method product price changes for packs you are using (have installed and are currently being charged for) will not be applied and Method will honor the original prices for those specific packs. Any applicable tax changes will be applied on monthly basis and may change according to applicable laws.
We will transfer the Prepay plan balance from one Method account to another Method account given the closure and creation happen at the same time. The customer will not be eligible for any free trial or grace period.
Multiple Method accounts are billed separately and based on their own usage and payment plan. Additional professional services charges may apply should you choose to engage Method staff for consulting, data migration or any other services.
You may cancel your Method account at any time by contacting your Method Account Manager and receiving a confirmation back.
For Prepay Plan accounts, with the exception of aforementioned Refund and Transfer Policy, no refund or credit will be issued within the term of the Prepay plan. Before a plan renews, you may cancel it to ensure it is not renewed.
For your convenience, the monthly and Prepay plan subscriptions will auto-renew until you cancel the service in accordance with the Cancellation policy.
For Prepay plans, within 30-days in advance of the auto-renewal date, you may notify Method in accordance with the cancellation policy to cancel your account on the renewal date. After the renewal date, in accordance with the Refund Policy, you may switch back to the monthly plan within the Grace Period.
You may choose to opt-out of auto-renewal by notifying Method and confirming with a Method representative. The auto-renewal amount will be based on the expected monthly Current Subscription Price at the time of renewal. You will be immediately charged the full Prepay amount at the time of renewal.
