Plan Downgrades

Downgrades can be scheduled from the billing page by the Organization owner and Organization admins. Downgrades are automatically scheduled to take place at the end of your billing period.

How to schedule a Plan downgrade

  1. Go to your billing page, which has all your plan details

  2. On the panel with your current plan, select the "Change Plan" option

3. You will be directed to the Pricing page, where you can choose which lower plan you want to change to.

4. After selecting your new choice, you can compare your current plan to your new choice before making a final decision.

5. If all is good, proceed to downgrade your plan. On your billing page, you should see the upcoming downgrade in the panel "Requested Plan."

  • Switching your subscription from an annual plan to a monthly plan is considered a downgrade which will also take place at the end of your billing period.

  • If you have any remaining credits, they will not roll over to the next plan.

Manage Organizations with downgrades

When you downgrade your subscription to a lower plan with fewer organizational seats, any excess members on the new plan will be deactivated, and their status will be changed to "Inactive". However, you can remove active members and switch them with inactive members who you want to have access to your organization.


Does this update affect Legacy plan users?

Legacy plan users cannot downgrade their subscriptions, while plan features like White Label or API are available only if they were part of the current legacy plan.

Any plan changes will be done according to the current pricing and plans. If you need to change your subscription, please reach out to the support team via chat or at [email protected] for help.

How can I set up Whitelabel and API?

At the moment, Whitelabel and API add-ons can only be set up and removed by the support team. You can reach out to them at [email protected].

What happens to the add-ons on my account when I downgrade?

When you downgrade your subscription, your add-ons will still remain on your account and renew on your billing date. At the moment, add-ons can only be removed with the help of the support team, so please reach out to [email protected] for help.

Can I cancel the add-ons on my account?

At the moment, you can't cancel the add-ons on your account from your dashboard. If you need to cancel your add-ons, please reach out to the support team via chat or at [email protected] for help.
