You may cancel your subscription at any time, yes. We do offer a 30-day money back guarantee. If you are not 100% happy with our system you may contact us within your first 30-days for a complete refund on your initial subscription cost.

Yes! If you feel that your business needs additional features offered in other packages, or if you feel that you have features you are not using, you may upgrade or downgrade to another subscription plan at any time with us.

They do not, no. We believe in fair business practices and feel like businesses who have a larger advertising budget should not have an unfair advantage over smaller businesses. However, our higher packages do come with far more features which in turn attract more user activity within their business listings. Users who find more features available within a business’s listing are far more likely to interact and share that business place with other users more often.

That’s a great question! Most of our clients only log into their administrator portal occasionally to view reports or add any special promotions. Our system allows for automated specials, promotions, or discounts on a timed calendar basis so there is no need to maintain your platform daily. Please also be aware that we will assist with all your initial setup, and we are happy to help you at any time!

If your business has more than one location, you will be granted access to one online administrator portal that allows you to maintain all your locations from one portal. Furthermore, you can also grant limited access by location if you have additional staff or location managers that need online access as well.

Yes! However, the discounted pricing for the annual plan may not fully apply if switching later. We encourage that you start with an annual subscription today to take full advantage of the pricing model.
