Please see the Cloud Billing documentation for more detailed information on the Cloud billing process.
If you’re on a monthly Cloud subscription, you can add more users to your instance which will be reflected on your monthly invoice. If you add new users in the middle of a billing cycle, you’ll only be charged for the days that the user is registered.
When you subscribe to an annual plan with Mattermost, you may incur retroactive charges on a quarterly basis for the actual number of registered users within your system if you are above the amount you subscribed in your purchase order. A registered user is a user who has an account in a workspace and does not show as Inactive in System Console > User Management > Users.
If you have more total active users than what you purchased in your annual subscription, we will provide you with an invoice and an amendment to your purchase order for the new users added. The additional invoice will be pro-rated based on the number of months left in your subscription term, including the months for the calendar quarter at the time we review your user counts. We will not provide downward adjustments. Mattermost will invoice based on Mattermost’s current list prices.
Your first Cloud subscription charge is at the end of the calendar month, and all monthly charges are billed in arrears on the first day of each month, e.g., June billing will be done on 7/1 for the period 6/1 - 6/30.
After your first month, the billing period begins at 12 AM UTC on the first day of each calendar month and ends at 11:59 PM UTC on the final day of the same calendar month. Per-user pricing for each billing period will be based on the number of registered users.
If you begin your subscription in the middle of a billing period, charges will be prorated. For example, if you signed up 6/15, we’ll charge you on 7/1 for the period 6/15 - 6/30.
Similarly, if you end your subscription in the middle of a billing period, charges will be prorated. For example, if you cancel your account on 6/15, we’ll charge you on 7/1 for the period 6/1 - 6/15.
If you upgrade in the middle of a billing period, charges will also be prorated. For example, if you upgrade from Starter to Professional on 6/15, we’ll charge you 7/1. This will be a single charge for Starter for the period 6/1 - 6/14, then a separate charge for Professional for the period 6/15 - 6/30.
Yes. Contact email@example.com to learn more about annual Cloud subscription options.
If you upgrade during a monthly billing cycle, charges will be prorated. For example, if you upgrade from monthly Starter to an annual term of Mattermost Professional on 6/15, we’ll charge you on 7/1 for Starter for the period 6/1 - 6/14. A separate invoice will be provided for the annual Mattermost Professional subscription period starting 6/15.
