This course will explain how subscriptions work, and how to change details like credit card numbers and subscription type. You can also earn a free subscription by earning points and referring friends.
You can try out your site for free as long as you like. You’ll be charged the first time you Publish.
Once you publish, you’ll be charged for anything that you purchased (like images or a paid template), and you’ll have to pick a subscription type.
When you publish, you can apply Rewards points. (We’ll talk about how to get a free subscription later.)
And you can select the type of subscription you want.
You can subscribe:
Cost: $5.00 per month
For a monthly subscription, you’ll be charged every month on the 1st.
The first month will be prorated, so if you sign up on the last day of the month, you’ll only be charged for that day—not the whole month.
You’ll see this prorated discount when you pay.
Cost: $50.00 per year
Yearly subscriptions are changed once a year on the day that you first published.
As you build your site (e.g., when you first update content and preview your site) you’ll earn Rewards points. You can apply these points toward your subscription.
Learn more about rewards.
The best way to earn points is to refer friends.
For example, if you refer 2 friends who both register, you’ll earn enough points for a free month. If you refer 2 friends who both publish, you’ll earn enough points for a free year.
