By selecting an Upgrade you agree to pay Serverful the monthly or annual subscription fees indicated for that service. Payments will be charged on a pre-paid basis on the day you sign up for an Upgrade and will cover the use of that service for a monthly or annual subscription period as indicated.

Minimal Hardware and Software Requirements for Using Serverful: Serverful can be used with any operating system (including mobile) that can run a modern browser (Edge, Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox).

Purchase Process: Services provided by Serverful can be purchased through the "Upgrade link" that can be reached after logging in to the products. The process works as follows:

  1. You select the desired paid plan or the number of SMS message / voice call credits or desired number of extra seats

  2. Complete the payment with a credit card, debit card, or PayPal

  3. Serverful sends an e-mail mentioning that the purchased service can be used

Automatic Renewal: Unless you notify Serverful before the end of the applicable subscription period that you want to cancel an Upgrade, your Upgrade subscription will automatically renew and you authorize us to collect the then-applicable annual or monthly subscription fee for such Upgrade (as well as any taxes) using any credit card or other payment mechanism we have on record for you. Upgrades can be canceled at any time in the My Settings section of your site's dashboard.

Refunds: You may terminate your subscription to the Upgrade at any time and you will not be obligated to pay any additional fees for upcoming subscription renewal periods. However, any subscription fees you have paid in advance will not be refunded unless there has been 10 days or less since the payment. For payments made in the last 10 days or less, only those payments are refundable.
