For almost all customers, you are able to manage the billing of your intelligentcontract account online.
The Billing area is available for access only by the Key User for the account, and will display different options depending on if your account is still within a Trial, is a Free Account, or is a paid Account. To access the billing area, click on the Billing icon at the bottom of the black navigation bar.

Billing Options Whilst in Trial
If you are still within Trial you will have the following four options available:
Change Trial Plan
When you create a Trial, the Plan that is selected is Professional - at any time during the Trial, you can switch Plans to see the different features that are available.
Click on the option and a pop up screen will display showing you the Plans available.

Each plan will detail its associated features so you can decide which Plan you would like to switch to. At the bottom of the page, there buttons titled [Switch to this Plan]. Click on one of these and your Trial will update to the new plan, and your Trial will now have all the associated features to reflect it.
You can switch back and forth as many times as you'd like, if would you like to make comparisons. More information about how to switch plans can be in this article.
This option is available if you wish to cancel your Trial account. By default all trials expire after 14 days, but if you wish to close the trial earlier this this, then you can use this option. We keep a record of your data for 6 months, in case there is a requirement to re-activate the account. After 6 months however, all data is permanently deleted from our servers.

Change Key User
The person that created the trial is allocated as the Key User for the account. The Key User will ultimately be the main contact that we will consult with in regards to everything to do with the account. If any alterations to the account or data are required, then the Key User will be asked for confirmation beforehand. If either during or after trial, this Key User needs to be changed, then it can be done via this option. Full details of how to change a Key User can be found in this article.
The orange [Start Subscription] button allows you to subscribe to an intelligentcontract account. When pressed, you will be presented with the option to confirm your required Plan, User Levels, and also any additional requirements that you may have to create the correct subscription for your organisation. Please refer to this article, which explains how to move from a Free Trial to a Paid Account.
