Downgrades can happen for any number of reasons. In some instances, you can downgrade to the Free plan directly from your Billing page if you’re on the Starter plan or reach out to your Customer Success Manager if you’re on the Professional or Enterprise plan.

In other instances, a downgrade can occur due to failure of payment. If we cannot process your payment after multiple attempts, your account will be downgraded to the free plan.

We want you to have a great experience from start to finish. Learn what happens when you downgrade plans.

Downgrade due to failure of payment

Starter plan

If you’re on the Starter plan, you could be downgraded if your banking details are not up to date when our system attempts to process your payment. If our payment system cannot process your payment on the first attempt, you will receive an email notifying you to update your banking details.

If you do not update your payment details after the first attempt, our system will attempt to process your payment two more times. You will be notified after each attempt until you update your payment. After the third attempt, your account will be downgraded to the Free plan.

Professional or Enterprise plan

If you fail to pay your invoice upon your renewal date, you will have a grace period of 90 days to make a payment. Once the grace period has passed, all editors will be locked out of the account. You will be able to access your account once you renew.


Do you keep the styleguides when you downgrade to the Free plan?

If you have more than one styleguide, you will lose access to all styleguides except the styleguide you created first. If you downgrade to the Free plan, the team owner of the account is the only person with editing capabilities.
