HOW ARE VIDEO VIEWS OF THE PLANS CALCULATED?
Every time a user starts watching a video, we count one video view. If a user resumes a video, we don’t count any views.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I EXCEED MY PLAN’S LIMIT?
You will be charged for the additional views at the end of your billing period.
WHAT IF I WANT TO CHANGE MY PLAN?
You can upgrade or downgrade your plan at any time. Select the plan that best meets your needs. Upgrades will be active at the same day and downgrades at the end of your billing period.
WHAT TYPES OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
We accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express.
ARE THERE ANY LONG-TERM COMMITMENTS?
There are no long-term commitments and you can cancel your subscription at any time.
WHAT COUNTS AS A VIDEO IMPRESSION?
Every time a video will be watched, we are counting one video impression. Refreshing the page and playing the video counts as one video impression. Pressing the play button after pressing the pause won’t be counted as an impression.
