Access to certain aspects of the Platform provided by SaaSync may require Customer to purchase a subscription for a period of time as specified during sign-up thereto (collectively, a “Subscription”). In connection with any Subscriptions that Customer selects to purchase, Customer must provide SaaSync (or its third party payment processor(s)) with a current, valid, accepted method of payment, which may change from time to time ("Payment Method"). All Subscription purchases are subject to any additional terms and conditions, including any fees, imposed by Customer’s financial services provider and/or mobile carrier, as applicable. By linking any Payment Method to Customer’s Account in connection with any Subscription, Customer hereby authorize SaaSync (or its third-party payment processor(s)) to charge the total cost of said Subscription and agree to be responsible for all associated charges.

SaaSync reserves the right to offer Subscriptions for the durations and at the corresponding costs that we determine appropriate, in our sole discretion.
4.4 Subscription Automatic Renewals. In order to provide continuous service, SaaSync automatically renews all Subscriptions on the date the Subscription expires.

Unless an applicable Order provides otherwise with regard to certain Services, Customer shall pay the Fees due for Services within 30 days after Customer’s receipt of the applicable invoice. SaaSync may charge interest on all past due invoices at a rate of 1.5% per month, or the highest rate allowed by applicable law, whichever is lower. If Customer’s Account becomes past due, Customer will receive written notice to that effect. If Customer fails to pay all past due amounts within 10 business days after notification, SaaSync may suspend access to the Platform and the provision of all Services until such time as Customer pays all past due amounts. If Customer continues to be habitually delinquent in its payments, SaaSync may, upon written notice to Customer, (a) terminate this Agreement for breach without an opportunity to cure, or (b) the payment terms shall be modified to require full payment before the provision or continued use of all Services (both currently contracted and scheduled future provisioned), or require other assurances to secure Customer’s payment obligations hereunder.
