Will I be charged for the Smart Plan trial?

During your 1-month free trial of the Smart plan:

You will continue to be charged at the price of your Basic Plan (€9/ month - excl. VAT) but you will be able to enjoy all the features of your new Smart Plan at no extra cost.

After the 1-month free trial period has elapsed:

You will be able to continue your journey on the Smart Plan (no action needed on your side) at a cost of €19/ month (excl. VAT) or you can chose to resume on your Basic Plan at no extra cost by just cancelling your free trial anytime before the expiry of the 1-month period.

💡 You can check the expiration date of your Smart Plan free trial at anytime from your Qonto account by following this path: Settings > Subscription & Billing > Plan fees overview.

How can I cancel my Smart Plan free trial?

You can cancel your Smart Plan free trial at any time during your 1-month period. To do so, follow these easy steps:

  1. Log into your desktop Qonto account

  2. Click on Settings from the left panel

  3. Click on the Subscription & Billing section and then on Plan fees overview

  4. Click on the Change Plans button

  5. Select the Basic Plan and follow instructions

👉 If you invited your accountant to a view-only access of your Qonto account and/or created a second account, a page will open prompting you to * revoke your accountant's dedicated access; * close your secondary account. You will need to perform these actions before being able to cancel your Smart Plan free trial since these features are not available in the Basic Plan (these actions need to be taken from your desktop interface, not on mobile) - check here for more details about downgrading from your current plan.

Reverting to a Basic Plan after Smart Plan free trial has expired

If you didn’t cancel your free trial before its expiry date, you will automatically stay on the Smart Plan and your account will be charged on a pro-rata basis of days left until the end of the month.

If you want to revert to a Basic Plan after your free trial has already expired, you can do so from the Plan fees overview section within the Settings of your desktop Qonto account. By doing so, your account will be credited with the fee difference between the Smart Plan and Basic Plan based on a pro-rata of days left until the end of the month.

If I didn’t have time to use my free trial can I repeat it for another month?

Be mindful that your Smart Plan free trial is only valid once and for a duration of one month. Make sure that you activate it at a time where you will be able to make the most of it!

💡 Not sure where to start? We’ve got you covered, upon starting your free trial and during its 1-month duration, you will be receiving regular e-mails from Qonto to help you discover and get started with your new Smart Plan.
