In case the Customer changes from a monthly billing Service Plan to a yearly billing Service Plan, Codacy will bill the Customer for a full year at the next monthly billing date. If the Customer decides to upgrade to a higher Service Plan or increase the number of End Users in the Service Plan, Codacy will bill the Customer at the date of the upgrade or increase. Customer may change the Service Plan or increase the number of End Users at any time by going to the billing settings available on the “Plan and Billing” section on Services platform.
