What happens when there is an issue with billing on your account

Payments can fail for a number of reasons. It might be a declined or expired credit card or it might be an insufficient balance. If there’s ever an issue, we email the primary billing contact on your account.

  • Expired credit card

  • Missing or incomplete billing information (Zipcode, CCV...)

  • Lost or stolen cards

  • Insufficient funds/balance

  • Expired trial

Expired Trials

In the event, that your trial has expired and you have not upgraded to a paid plan, any active data pipelines will be paused. Upgrading to a paid plan, with current payment information is required to continue the use of the service.

Preventing Failed Payments

We will proactively send an email to customers asking that their payment information is up to date. This includes emails for upcoming renewal events 3 days before a subscription renews.

Billing Error Notifications

To help resolve payment issues quickly, here is what happens once we are unable to process payments:

If you've run into a payment issue simply update a payment method from the Profile page in your account. Any updates can be made directly in your Customer Billing Portal.
