Switch billing plans

During your free trial period, you can switch between the Flexible Plan and Annual Plan at any time. When your trial is over and your paid subscription begins, you can switch from the Flexible to Annual Plan at any time. However, you can't switch from the Annual to Flexible Plan until your annual contract is up for renewal.

If you're on the Annual Plan and your free trial has expired, you can't switch to the Flexible Plan until it's time to renew your subscription. If you cancel your Annual Plan subscription before its renewal date, you'll be required to pay a closeout charge.
