A valid credit card or Paypal account is required for paid subscription Products and Services.
When you subscribe to paid Products and Services, your credit card or Paypal account will be billed according to current BCC rates for the selected subscription plan to prepay usage of Product and Services for the current period. For monthly plans you will be charged subsequently on the same day of each month. If the billing date is the 29th — 31st, and the billing month does not contain this date, then the billing date will be adjusted to the last day of the current calendar month. Annual plan renewals will be charged on same day of the following year to prepay usage of Product and Services for the next annual service period.
If you choose to downgrade your subscription by switching to a free subscription plan, BCC will change your account immediately. No credit will be applied for the unused portion of service.

The payment for the unused portion of service from your Old Plan will be credited toward the price of the New Plan. Your future monthly billing date will always remain the same. If the Plan change is a downgrade, credit will be applied to future months and your next monthly fee will be charged when the credit from the Old Plan has been used. If the Plan change is an upgrade, you will be charged the remaining portion for the current billing period immediately, and subsequent months will be charged on your previously existing billing date. Remaining credit from the current billing period will be calculated based on the number of remaining days in the current billing month.
