Updating a Plan uses Stripe prorated costs on plan switch. Current plan unused remaining time is credited and new plan remaining time is added to the invoice.

For example, say your current plan cost is $10 per month. Your billing period starts 1st of each month and you switch plan in the middle of the billing cycle. In that case, you have already paid $10, and used half of the current billing cycle.

When you switch to the new plan, with a cost of $25, the unused portion of the previous plan results in a credit of $5. The cost of the new plan for the rest of the billing cycle will be $12.50. Therefore, the total prorated cost of switching from the cheaper plan to the expensive plan is $12.50 - $5 = $7.50. This amount will be added to the next invoice and next invoice is $7.50 + $25 = $32.50

When you switch subscription plans in the middle of a billing period to plan with different billing frequency. For example monthly to yearly. You will be charged immediately with prorated costs.

Adding new users to an organization. How is that billed?

Organization plan starts from 5 users. New users are automatically added to your organization when you add new teammates to any of your organization’s teams. Number of users in an organization is checked daily. One user can belong to multiple teams, but will be charged only once.

Team member invitations to an organization team are not calculated to as an active user. Only when user has accepted an organization team, user is part of the organization.

When you add more than 5 different users to your organization, a new organization user will be prorated for the remainder of the current billing period. This is tracked automatically for you and added on your next bill.

Delete user from an organization

Sketchboard checks daily how many different users there are in the organization. When user is deleted from your organization you will have prorated credit in your next bill.

Note that minimum charge for organization is 5 users. If you need smaller plans you can choose separate team plans.

Storage space for organizations

Organizations’ have more storage space. Storage space is calculated per user in the organization. For each user in the organization, storage space is increased with 1 GB. E.g. if you have 15 users in your organization your will have 15 GB of storage space for all your organizations’ teams available for images and board versions.
