Frequently asked questions
Excellent question. Slack is a way for your entire company to communicate. It replaces email with something faster, better organised and more secure. Instead of one-off email chains, all your communication is organised into channels that are easy to create, join and search. When there’s a channel for everything that’s happening at your company, everyone knows exactly where to go to get work done. For more reading on the topic, we recommend taking a look at our Resources Library.
The cost of Slack for your company is based on the number of users actively using Slack and whether you are paying monthly or annually. For a comparison of all of the pricing subscriptions, please visit the pricing page.
Every day we check to see if everyone on your team is active. If they have been inactive for a period of time, we stop charging you for that person and add a prorated credit to your account for the time that you’ve already paid. You’ll always and only be billed for what you use – fair and square!
Team owners can change the team’s subscription level. There are two options when downgrading from a paid subscription to the Free subscription:
You can downgrade to the Free subscription immediately. If there is more than one day until your renewal date, we will prorate the remaining balance on your account and hold it for your team as a credit. You can use that credit towards a reactivation of your paid subscription in the future.
We can automatically downgrade you to the Free subscription at your next renewal date. Your subscription will remain active at its current level up to the end of the billing period that you’ve already paid for.
We do not offer refunds.
