What types of billing plans can I create?

Credit repair businesses must consider each client's needs and finances when deciding on the billing structure. Offering one-time fee, pay-per-delete, and monthly plan options gives clients more choices and can help serve a broader range of people.

  • Subscription (Monthly)

    Our most popular plan! This type of billing plan consists of a first-work fee and a monthly fee (recurring).

  • 1-Time Flat Fee

    This type of billing plan consists of a one-time flat fee for your service. This type of plan can be useful for single dispute resolutions (clients with a specific and isolated credit issue), limited credit repair needs (clients with very few negative items in their reports), short-term credit repair goals (clients aiming to improve their score for a specific financial milestone), etc.

  • Pay Per Item Deleted

    This type of billing plan might suit clients with budget constraints or with a few specific items on their credit reports that they want to address individually.
