Preparation for Subscription
When you sign up for an account on the AS2 Gateway, you are automatically provided a one-month free trial. You can use the trial to configure your AS2 Station, and setup Partners, and then to test out connectivity both ways from/to Partners. Once you are ready to move to production use, you may subscribe to a paid plan as described at www.as2gateway.com/pricing
After your free trial expires, you would still be able to log in to your account; however, your existing AS2 configurations and data may not be accessible, until you have activated a subscription as described below. If you are not yet ready to purchase a subscription (for example, you need more time to complete the end-to-end production testing), please contact our support team with your concern to get an extended evaluation.
Please note the limitations of your selected plan, such as the message sizes etc
Subscribing to the AS2 Gateway
Click your username at the top right corner of the screen, and select ‘Subscription’ from the menu.
Your current subscription or trial account information will be shown, along with the available paid subscriptions, based on the payment frequency. Select the ‘Annually’, ‘Quarterly’ or the ‘Monthly’ tab as desired, and then click ‘Buy:Paddle’ button on the preferred subscription plan.
Once you click the ‘Buy:Paddle’ button the Paddle payment process will initiate.
First provide your email address as shown above.
Next make sure to select your billing country, and if requested the state and/or Zip code. Paddle is our payment processor, and charges Sales Tax - if your purchase requires such payment. Note that Paddle determines Sales tax based primarily on your billing address, VAT or Tax number (if applicable), and your type of purchase - B2B or B2C. Since the MFT Gateway service is a B2B (Business to Business) service - unlike a Business to Consumer (B2C) service, Sales tax does not apply for most purchases. You can see the list of countries / jurisdictions and the applicable tax rates for purchase types.
Incomplete or incorrect information may incur Sales Tax
Paddle allows you to pay by credit card or PayPal. Select tour payment method from the next screen, and make sure to:
- Specify your VAT or Tax number if the option is displayed
- Add any coupon, if you have one
Complete your billing address and VAT or Tax number.
Finally, provide your credit card details, and click ‘Subscribe Now’.
