Cloud Version

Customers have two billing options to purchase BrightPay (Cloud): 

Monthly subscription: Monthly payments are due and payable monthly in arrears by Direct Debit on the 4th of the following month or the next working day, based on your total number of active employers and employees in that month. Payments are taken automatically each month.

Annual payment: Annual payment plans are due and payable on the 4th of the following month based on the number of employers and employees you will need in that year. A discount will apply to annual payments. *

Payment details are set up in your Bright ID billing preferences. Pricing applies to the cloud version of BrightPay only.

*Additional usage that is higher than the annual payment plan will be charged based on monthly subscription prices with overage payments taken automatically each month.
