What happens after the credits expire on my account?
At the end of the 6-month trial, your credit card on file will automatically be charged for the products & number of agents you currently have if you do not cancel or update your subscription.
If you’re satisfied with your current subscription, no action needs to be taken and your Zendesk experience will be uninterrupted. If you’d like to update your subscription at any time, you can do so within the Admin Center in your Zendesk instance. This Help Center article has guidance on how to do so.
