What currency is the $7 in?

Will I get a refund after 7 days if i cancel the subscription within 6 days or within 1 day? Is there a money back guarantee for the paid trial? 

No, there will not be a refund or a money back guarantee if the subscription is cancelled anytime before the end of the trial or after the trial. However, should there be an technical issues with your trial subscription, feel free to contact our Support team at our live chat or at support@ahrefs.com.

If I cancel now, will I be able to use my account? 

Cancellation of the trial will not limit account functionalities as you have already purchased 7 days' of usage so your Lite/Standard access will be available until the end of the trial.

Will I be automatically charged for the monthly subscription after 7 days of paid trial?

Yes, if you do not cancel within the 7 days of paid trial, you will be charged the monthly subscription thereafter. Thus, if you are not ready to proceed with the paid monthly subscription, ensure that you cancel by the end of the 7 days. 

Do my subscription limits reset when a monthly plan starts after trial?

No, subscription limits reset in 1-month time after you sign up: either it is a trial or a monthly package.

You may check this date for your account in Account Settings menu:

Does the paid trial limit my access to features?

The paid trial enables you to try out our Lite and / or Standard plans and you will be able to enjoy full access to the features based on the provisions available to those plans. 

Can I change my plan later?

Yes, during the paid trial, you can toggle freely between Lite and Standard plans.  
However, upgrading to Advanced or Agency will trigger a payment. 

During the paid trial, you may choose to upgrade your plan at any time in your account settings and your account will be upgraded instantly. For example, should you upgrade say on the 3rd day of your paid trial, you'll get a pro-rated refund on the un-used remaining 4 days of the trial and also a charge from the upgraded subscription plan.

After the paid trial, you may also change your plan at any time in your account settings. 

I am only interested in the keyword explorer / site explorer / backlink checker or one of the tools in Ahrefs' suite of tools specifically. Is there pricing for just that tool?

All Ahrefs' plans include access to ALL of Ahrefs' tools. We do not have a separate pricing for any one tool.  

Are there any setup fees?

No. There are no setup fees or hidden charges with any of our account plans. 

However, there may be tax applied to the final fee by our reseller FastSpring depending on the country. For more info on handling sale taxes for your country, please, check this URL - https://support.fastspring.com/hc/en-us/articles/207436686

Am I agreeing to a contract when I take a paid trial?

No and we don’t have any contract obliging you to stay subscribed. You may cancel your subscription at any time. 

Does "7 day" mean = 168 hours?

No. We reset Subscriptions and daily limits at 00:00 (UTC or GMT) and not in 24 hours after the payment was received.
You may apply for a trial at any time of the day: at 06:00 or at 23:00 (UTC or GMT) - it will still be counted as day 1.
So trial ends not exactly in 168 hours after the purchase, but at 23:59:59 of the 7th day (UTC or GMT).

Policy on Trial Abuse

Ahrefs does not condone any abusing of our paid trials as it goes against the initial intent of allowing new users to try out our features. 

As we have systems in place to detect the abusing of our trials, your account may be blocked if we discover such activities. 

We hope you understand that as happy as we are to provide initial trial access, our team works hard to keep Ahrefs as awesome as it is. Trial abusers are a big drain on our resources and we need to conserve these resources for our paid users.
