Frequently Asked Questions
How does the 14 day free trial work?
Get access to all our features to try them out. We'll set you up with our software & a retreat consultant to make it easy. If you decide to buy then your free trial account will become your live account. You won't lose any of your data or your setup.
How many users do we get?
All plans come with unlimited accounts for your whole team.
What counts as a registration?
A registration is 1 guest's stay at your retreat center. Ie. A guest who comes for a 2 day retreat counts as 1 registration. A guest who comes for a 30 day retreat also counts as 1 registration.
Typically registrations are for overnight or multi-day retreats. But, if you have many day-visitors, or often rent out your retreat organization to visiting teachers & their students, weddings and conferences, let us know. This could make your plan cheaper!
What happens if I cancel half way through the year?
Pay yearly risk free:
If you pay a year in advance we will reimburse you for the remaining months left in the year.
If you pay monthly, you'll just stop paying at the beginning of the next month.
What happens if we go over our plan?
If your retreat organization is doing many more registrations than expected this year, Congrats! We will notify you if you're processing more registrations than is part of your current price plan. You'll only be responsible for paying your new price plan after you have been notified. If you sign up for a higher plan, and do fewer registrations than expected, you can move to a smaller plan. We will credit you the plan difference from last year towards this year's plan payment.
Still have questions?
Not sure which plan is right for you?
We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:
Practice, learn, share, relax. Karin
