Understanding Your Account Information
Keeping track of your account is an important part of using Rebuy. To make sure you are up to date on your account information, understanding these four terms is essential: Account Created, Free Trial Ended, Free Trial End Date, and Next Billing Date.
This is when you first installed the app. The Account Created will tell you the approximate date you setup your account.
Free Trial Ended
You will have the option of a free trial when you first sign up for Rebuy. This field will tell you when the free trial is still active or has ended. The field will answer yes or no to let you know if you are still in the free trial.
Free Trial End Date
Similar to the Free Trial Ended field, the Free Trial End Date will show you the exact date your free trial has or will finish.
Next Billing Date
The next billing date is the next time Rebuy will issue an invoice (through Shopify). It will provide you with the date of when you should expect Rebuy to issue the next invoice.

Days Remaining: The amount of days remaining until the next invoice cycle.
Orders for Period: The number of orders you have accumulated during the current period.

Understanding Your Rebuy Invoice
The Invoice #
The Invoice # field contains the unique identifier for your invoice. This is the only way to reference a particular invoice, so make sure to keep it safe and secure.
The Service Period
The Service Period field lists the timeframe of the billing cycle your invoice is for. This timeframe usually covers a single month, but may vary in certain circumstances. Reminder, we bill ahead at 30 day increments. See our FAQ for more info.
The Charges Field
The Charges field lists any fees that you are being charged for. This will also list any additional fees, such as taxes, late fees, or other miscellaneous charges.
The Billing Plan
The Billing Plan field shows the current version of Rebuy billing you are on. If you would like to change your billing plan, you can do so with ease from your company's account page.
The Amount Field
The Amount field lists the total amount you owe for the given service period. If you would like to check the exact breakdown of the charges, you can do so by clicking on the Invoice #. This will take you to a detailed view of your invoice, with the breakdown of all charges.
The Balance Field
Any outstanding balance you may have with Rebuy will be listed in the Balance field. This balance will roll over to your next invoice, if it is not paid in full. Keep an eye on your balance to ensure it doesn't become too high!
Estimating Your Upcoming Invoice
If you have an upcoming invoice and you'd like to estimate the amount before receiving it, RebuyEngine can help you compile the necessary information.
To begin, navigate to the reports page. Once there, select the desired date range you would like to inspect. RebuyEngine typically recommends selecting the 30 day range for the most accurate results.
After entering the desired date range, you should receive two results—the Widget RGR and Post Purchase RGR. Your total order count number will reflect the current orders from the previous 30 days. Your Rebuy sales will account for your RGR (Rebuy Generated Revenue).
How Does Billing Work?
We prorate our invoices for the upcoming 30 days. For example, your invoice is on 09/01/2022. That invoice will be good for the billing period of 09/01/2022 - 10/01/2022. This helps ensure you are only billed for the days you used the service.
Prorated billing helps provide a more accurate and cost-effective billing system that reduces complexity and over-charging. Since we prorate, our bills are calculated based on the previous 30 days of usage in a rolling 30 day cycle.
What is a Rolling 30 Day Cycle?
A rolling 30 day cycle works by calculating billing based on the days that have passed between two billing cycles. This means that your invoices will not always be a complete month long.
Will my Plan Tier Change?
Yes, your plan tier will automatically change based on your monthly OPM (Orders Per Month) and RGR (Rebuy Generated Revenue). This dynamic responsiveness ensures that your strategy remains aligned with your business's performance.
What Currency Will I be Billed?
The currency we use for pricing is the US Dollar. In the event that you opt for a different currency, the corresponding amount will be computed by taking into account the prevailing exchange rates at the moment your invoice is generated.
Why are There Multiple Line Items on the Charges?
In the event that your usage of Rebuy surpasses the predefined billing cap, your invoice might encompass multiple distinct line items. Each of these individual line items contributes to the overall sum owed to Rebuy. Subsequently, upon your subsequent login to the Rebuy platform, you will be prompted to authorize an adjustment to your billing cap, which is essential to sustain your ongoing access to the product. After receiving your authorization, we will then initiate the invoicing process for the outstanding balance, ensuring a seamless continuation of your product usage.
What is the $1,000 "Free" RGR?
Enjoy the 'Free' tier for RGRs under $1,000. Here's how you can unlock this advantageous offer: Every month, if your generated revenue remains below the $1,000 threshold, you automatically qualify for the 'Free' plan. If you surpass the $1,000 RGR then you will be invoiced based on the RGR/OPM tier that your company falls under.
What is the "Free" Checkout Extensions?
For those utilizing the Shopify Plus plan and having checkout extensions integrated, any revenue generated through the Rebuy widget will be exempt from charges. This revenue will not be factored into the calculation of your $1,000 cap, ensuring that it does not contribute to the invoicing of your plan. In other words, the revenue derived from the checkout extensions Rebuy widget within your Shopify Plus setup will remain separate from the cap.
