Billing Basics

SUMMARY
Securely manage your billing information directly in Paperless Pipeline.

Upgrade / Downgrade Your Account

Paperless Pipeline is offered free of long-term contracts, lock-in, sign up fees, or termination fees. Just pay as you go with a debit or credit card, and cancel if you no longer want to use the application. To keep our billing simple, we do not allow payment by check or any other alternate arrangement.

Master admins may upgrade or downgrade their account by:

  1. Click [Upgrade / Downgrade] from the left menu of their dashboard. From there, click an account option to upgrade or downgrade your plan.

Your account will be charged the new plan amount on your next bill date, then will continue to bill at that amount each month on your monthly bill date as long as you stay at that plan level. Your billing cycle begins on the date you signed up.

You are never billed more than once every 30 days, regardless of any upgrades or downgrades made to your account mid-cycle. If you upgrade your plan, you'll be granted additional transaction files immediately and billed the new total on your next billing date, which is shown on the Current Plan section of your admin’s Dashboard.

You can only downgrade to a lower plan if you have created fewer transaction files than allowed for that lower plan in the current billing month. If you've exceeded the amount allowed by your desired plan, you will need to wait until next month for your transaction limit to reset.

Monthly Limit / Transaction File Quota

A transaction file is any newly created transaction in your account. You may add only as many transactions as your plan allows in any billing period. Transaction updates, such as changing the status of a single transaction from "Working" to "Closed", do not count against your monthly transaction limit.

When you create a transaction file, it counts against your quota for the current monthly cycle. Your transaction quota is reset at the start of each month and any open transaction files you created in previous months will not count against your new quota.

If you need to add more transactions in a billing period than your plan allows, you’ll need to upgrade to a higher plan level. You can downgrade back to your previous plan once you are billed and your quota resets.

Update Credit Card

To update a credit or debit card on file:

  1. Click your name in the upper right corner then "Admin / Settings".
  2. Click [Update Credit Card] from the left menu.
  3. Enter a valid credit card number, expiration date, and billing zip code.
  4. Click [Update Credit Card].

To validate your credit card, we will make a small authorization between $.00 and $1.00 on your card. This is not a charge and this authorization will automatically disappear from your credit card statement within 3 to 8 business days.

By updating your credit card, you agree to the following:
