Fair billing

GitBook tries to offer the fairest billing policy by adapting the billing to your usage. In short:‌

  • You’ll be charged for members in your organization on the day that you upgrade to a paid plan.

  • Any changes to the number of members will be reflected in your monthly statement, either as extra prorated charges or payback.

The current accepted payment method is credit card.

Credit card charges

The day you upgrade to a paid plan is the start of your billing period. From here, there are only three different times you will see charges from GitBook:‌

  • On the day you upgraded to a paid plan.

  • On the monthly renewal date of your billing period. (charges apply when adding more members)

  • Anytime your balance exceeds a certain amount for annual plans from adding new members:

    • $300 for Team (previously startup) yearly plan

🧠 Note: Annual and monthly commitments are subject to our pro-rata pricing.
