For more information, reference our pricing page for a more comprehensive comparison.
No, there are no additional costs. What you see is what you get with your subscription.
The only additional costs you could possibly incur are if you decide to purchase a custom app or a premium trainer page, which are not included in any subscription level.
Great question. We like to keep things simple, so your bill will be prorated based on where you're at in your billing cycle.
For example, if you upgrade half way through your billing cycle then we take into account what you have already paid and the time remaining until your next bill date. That way you aren't charged for unused time on your new subscription level. Additionally, you won't be billed for your new subscription level until your next bill is due.
So if your bill comes on the first of every month and you upgraded on the 16th, then you won't be billed again until the first of next month, as usual, which will be prorated to only reflect the amount of time you spent on that new tier.
We use Stripe to facilitate payments and commerce through FitSW. With each transaction processed through FitSW, there is a fee collected of 3.9% + $0.30.
2.9% + $0.30 is taken by Stripe while we take just 1% of each transaction. These are some of the most competitive rates in business.
This is a great question. While PayPal, Cash App, or Venmo may have slightly smaller transaction fee's, we have an entire digital infrastructure built around financial transactions that is much more robust then a simple, one-time payment.
Whether it's building a subscription, a package, or advanced live class pricing, the difference is, we also enable powerful business processes to revolved around payments. Saving you time and therefore, money.
Along those same lines, creating a subscription service or offering advanced live class pricing like we do would be an incredible manual task with PayPal or Venmo. The key is, it's simply not scalable as a manual task in another payment processor and eliminates it as a viable business process. Our software handles a lot of the manual leg work that takes a non-scalable process and makes it scalable.
No, your subscription covers your use and your clients use of the app.
Absolutely. It's one of the first things you are given the opportunity to do when creating a client profile.
