  1. You must provide and maintain accurate billing information. Subscribing to a paid GTmetrix account gives GTmetrix license to charge you and/or bill your credit card/PayPal account for GTmetrix related fees, as well as any applicable taxes.
  2. Payments will be charged in advance on the first day of each billing cycle for that cycle.
  3. Subscription fees will be charged automatically unless you cancel your service.
  4. You can change between different billing cycles at any time. By default, if you are downgrading your plan, the new billing cycle length will take effect after the expiration of the current cycle (i.e. at the next renewal date). Plan upgrades take affect immediately. See Changing Account Types point 4 for information on immediate downgrades.

Changing Account Types

  1. You may upgrade or downgrade your GTmetrix account at any time from the GTmetrix Pricing/your Account page. An upgrade is any plan where the cost per billing cycle is greater than or equal to your current plan's cost per billing cycle. All plan changes which are not upgrades are considered downgrades.
  2. After an upgrade you will be billed immediately for the remaining time until the next renewal. This bill will be pro-rated in accordance with the amount you have already paid.
  3. After a downgrade you will be billed at the new rate on the next renewal date.
  4. If you wish to downgrade immediately, you may shift to any plan of equal or lesser value than the pro-rated amount remaining on your current billing cycle.

Refund Policy

  1. No refunds or exchanges on subscription services, except as assessed on a case-by-case basis. To request a refund, contact us within 14 days (2 weeks) of the payment date stating the reason for your request.
  2. If you do not receive this receipt e-mail it is your responsibility to contact GTmetrix within these 14 days via e-mail to confirm that GTmetrix has received your request.

Cancellation and Termination of Service

  1. You may at any time cancel your paid subscription by downgrading to GTmetrix Basic (Free), provided that any past invoices have been paid. This can be done from your Account page. GTmetrix does not accept cancellations via e-mail or phone.
