Subscribe to Chartsmart
A Chartsmart data subscription is $600 Canadian Funds plus taxes per year ($50/month). That is approximately $450 US per year. There is no need to subscribe immediately though because we a happy to give you a generous free trial period so you feel comfortable with Chartsmart first. We don't even require a credit card number or email. Just go to our DOWNLOAD link and begin your trial.
We bill our users in January for the full calender year, but if you are a new user starting part way through the year, payment is $50/month for the remaining months of the calender year. If you cancel, we gladly refund the balance of your paid subscription. We accept cheques, money orders, or bank drafts, and Interac (Canada), but not credit cards. If you are paying in US funds (no taxes applicable) your bill will be adjusted to reflect US currency. Payment is made to:
ChartSmart Software Inc.
PO Box 19180 Fourth Ave RPO
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Taxes below are applicable to Canadian Residents Only
BC, Alta, Sask, Man, Que, Yukon, NW Territories, Nunavut - ADD 5% ($630 CDN)
P.E.I., New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia - ADD 15% ($690 CDN)
Ontario - ADD 13% ($678 cdn)
Example if you are a new subscriber
If you were a new subscriber having completed your trial, and it was April, you would email us that you wanted to subscribe. We would then email you a bill and you would send payment for the 8 remaining months of the year (8 x $50 = $400) plus taxes.
Example if you are a current subscriber
If you were a current subscriber renewing, it would be late November when we email you a payment reminder with the amount. You would then send in payment for the 12 months of the next year, ensuring that your cheque arrived to us before Jan. 15, and was dated January 1st. We prefer to have our renewals completed in the first week of January as we pay for many of our data bills in advance for the entire calender year.
Why we don't take credit card payments
We no longer accept credit cards given that credit card information can be sensitive when dealing with the internet. Instead, our approach is to give a generous trial period so that trial users can be confident whether Chartsmart is of value to them. If you need your trial extended then just email us and let us know. If you are satisfied with Chartsmart, you can simply pay for the balance of the current year by cheque or by Interac. This means you don't need to worry about recurring monthly payments, plus, it simplifies billing for us as we can do all the yearly renewals at the start of each year, for the full year.
