Not every potential subscriber of Beyond CAD or Beyond Typicals has the same needs and options available for payment. While virtually all of our subscribers are using these products for professional purposes (B2B) some are part of a large engineering firm, some are employees of public agencies and others may be part of a small contracting company.
Because of this and to serve our subscribers in the best way possible, we have been working to make as many payment options available as possible from Beyondware. Following is a list of all the ways that potential subscribers can pay for any of our product subscriptions.
For context and transparency, we use Chargebee for tracking licenses and Stripe for our payment processing, and we never see nor have access to payment information.
1- Credit Card
Paying via credit card is the recommended payment option. If you are upgrading your account from a free trial, you will need to access your account by clicking on MANAGE ACCOUNT at the top of the website. You will receive a One Time Password (OTP) via email (check SPAM if you can’t find it) which will give you access to your account. To add your credit card information, click on Payment Methods toward the bottom of the account popup. Follow instructions to enter your information, address and credit card information.
You can also buy any of our subscription plans from the Pricing page at any time by clicking BUY NOW on the desired plan and following steps to enter your email, information and payment details.
2- Direct Debit
For direct debit we also use Stripe in conjunction with Plaid which handles the connection with the banks directly. This is preferred to many due to the lack of credit card fees necessary to handle the transaction.
To set up direct debit payments, you also need to access your account via the MANAGE ACCOUNT link at the top of our web pages. By default, it is set to the Credit Card page, but you can access the Direct Debit section by clicking the link at the top right (see images below). You will see a notification that we use Plaid and after accepting you will be taken to the ‘Select your bank’ page. Once you find your bank, you can then enter your credentials to log in to your account. Follow the steps to finish setting up the link.
Similar to credit card, your payment will be withdrawn automatically at the beginning of each pay period, and you’ll receive notifications before and after these payments via email.
3- Physical Check
If you are unable to pay via credit card or direct debit, we can also accept a physical check. If you prefer this method, simply contact us, and we can generate an invoice with the address to send the check.
When the check is received, we will cash it and activate the subscription for the preferred account (or start a new account). At the end of the payment term, you can send another check or opt to switch to credit card or direct debit.
Using resellers to manage software licenses is the preferred method and standard for some industries. We are working to partner with resellers and build out a robust network, so if you would prefer to purchase through a reseller, you can visit this link to see the list of resellers we have partnered with.
If you are already working with a reseller, and they don’t yet offer our products because we are new to the market, you can consider requesting them to add our products to their listings. We’ve already been receiving requests from resellers that have only heard about us through their customers, so we expect the reseller relationships to be incredibly important as we grow.
