RingPlan Now Featuring a Fair Billing Policy

RingPlan takes a stand for fair billing practices because you should only be paying for extensions you are using. A big win for new and existing customers.

RingPlan_Savings2-02With RingPlan, you’ll only be charged for active users on any paid account. In order to remain in a paid tier, you must have a minimum of 1 active user. Those who become inactive will be automatically removed from your bill. Customers can easily see their fair billing calculation in their bill, along with a list of active and inactive users.

Prorated Rates for New Users

With RingPlan, you only pay for the time used by new users who are added to your plan. If you add a new user anywhere through your billing cycle, you’ll only be charged part of the month the user is active. For example, a user who is added halfway through your billing cycle would only cost half the monthly rate for their first month. We will calculate these discounts automatically and report these savings in your monthly bill. Customers on an annual plan will be sent an invoice at the end of the month for the added annual cost of adding the new user on a prorated basis.

Credit Card Charges

With RingPlan you will only see credit card charges on the day you subscribe to a paid plan; monthly thereafter, if you are on a monthly plan; on your annual renewal date, if you are on an annual plan; and at the end of the month, if you are on an annual plan and there is an outstanding balance on your account from adding new users.

Automatically Detecting User Inactivity

RingPlan automatically detects user inactivity and credits your account on a prorated basis for each inactive user. Customers will see credits applied to their bill on their renewal date or when new users are added to their plan.

Prorated credits are calculated by dividing the user cost by the number of days in the month (30), and multiplying this value by the number of days the user used RingPlan. Credits have no monetary value, are non-transferrable, and non-refundable. These credits will expire upon account termination or if downgrading to a free plan from a paid plan.  

Defining an Inactive User

A user becomes inactive after 14 days of inactivity or if deactivated by the account owner. A user can be reactivated by the account owner or if RingPlan detects the user using the service again. Customers don’t need to lift a finger, RingPlan automatically detects user activity.
