Maintainn Maintenance and Hosting Billing Changes
In an effort to offer subscription rate discounts to our Maintainn clients without requiring a larger upfront investment, we’ve recently made changes to the Maintenance Plans and Hosting Plans pages on our website to replace the yearly billing cycle option with quarterly billing.
Maintenance subscribers with quarterly billing will receive an 8% discount over monthly billing while hosting subscribers will yield a 5-7% discount depending on the plan selected. If you are an existing subscriber and would like to take advantage of these discounts by changing your billing cycle from monthly to quarterly, login to your account, choose the Subscribe Now button for your plan from within the respective plans page, and the checkout page will reflect the prorated amount. Maintainn still offers yearly billing cycles and volume discounts for both services at an even greater discount.

Who better to turn to for tips on creating and sustaining a remote work company culture than Brad, our CEO and Co-Founder? He was recently featured in an interview with Remote Habits. You can read it in its entirety here. Read about more remote work tips on our blog.
