From December 1, 2013 the following paid accounts & services are available to designers registered on Designeros.com:
1. User formating
Accounts are divided into three groups:
1.1 Free Account
Free account is for an unlimited period of time and allows the user to establish his/her online portfolio and present/sell three products and three concepts. The space provided for the designer’s self-representation is limited. The designer’s portfolio is not presented in the designer listing. The designer section/listing presents only designers with Business and Business + accounts
1.2. Business & Business + Accounts
The upgraded accounts have to be paid in advance by a credit card. Once Designeros receives the payment, the respected account is activated and the designer can start using the additional features for the predetermined period of time as specified. http://www.designeros.com/page/pricing-fees
Users can also purchase a subscription for a reduced price. The available subscription terms are 3, 6 or 12 months.
The one-time fee allows the user to enjoy the benefits of the upgraded account for the period of 30 days.
Every user is notified about the automatic renewal ten days before the account’s expiration and his/her credit card is automatically charged on the first day of the new term. In case that the user prefers to disable the automatic renewal, this can be easily done in his/her profile settings: www.designeros.com/account
Subscribers with active accounts may upgrade their subscription at any time and for the already paid subscription period will be charged only the difference between the two applicable subscription fees. Downgrading is not possible as any amount paid for the subscription is non-refundable. In the case of a mistaken upgrade, the refund can be issued only within 24 hours after the upgrade and the user has to contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org . When requesting the refund, please, state the reason and the email address under which the user account is registered on www.designeros.com.
In case that a user decides to terminate the Business or Business+ account and stops paying the fees, his/her account will be automatically downgraded to a free account.
