Billing

Billing details are available in the workspace Preferences under the Billing tab:

Billing details overview

You need to be the workspace owner to access and manage billing settings.

Payments

Charging

The charge is made automatically upon adding the payment method and is repeated on the same day each month. For example, if you add your credit card on January 27, Buddy will charge you on the same day and schedule the next charges on February 27.

Payment methods

Buddy uses Braintree to process payments and supports credit cards and PayPal transfers. This means no billing information is stored on our servers as everything is served via the external provider. You can add and update your payment methods in the Billing information tab:

Payment method

Transactions history

Transactions history contains the history of all billing operations assigned with your user ID (payments, credit card updates, etc.), including declined payments with associated errors that can help you resolve credit card issues with your bank.
