How does usage billing work?
When your total registration usage for a given month is within the low volume limit, up to 50 new registrations, then we do not bill you for that month, regardless if you have enabled billing or not. Our free usage allows your account to accept up to 50 new registrations per month, but you can remove that limit and accept unlimited registrations at any time without any interruption in service by enabling the pay-per-use billing for your account.
With enabled billing, registrations are billed a one-time fee of $0.10 (ten cents) per registration on a pay-per-use basis (only once) at the end of the billing cycle. You are only billed when your total usage of new registrations for the month goes above 50 new registrations.
You will receive alerts from Corsizio if you do not have billing enabled, when you are getting close to your limit and when you reach the free usage limit. If you do reach the maximum limit within a month and you do not have billing enabled, the system will stop accepting any new registrations for your account. This limit will be removed as soon as you enable billing; otherwise, it will reset in the next billing cycle.
You can view your current and historical usage trends and data under Reports within your Corsizio account.
What counts as a registration?
Anytime someone registers to one of your events or to a waiting list for your events, or anytime you manually register someone, this counts as part of your total usage for the month.
If you cancel or delete a registration, given that it was already processed by Corsizio, it still counts as part of your total usage for the month it was registered in. We do not charge you anything extra to process the cancellation or deletion of it.
How much does it cost?
If your total usage in a given month is between 0 and 50 new registrations, then there is no charge for those registrations. Your usage is considered low volume, is free, and you do not get billed.
If your total usage in a given month is more than 50 new registrations, then you are billed a one-time fee, as presented in the table below, for each registration that month depending on the payment card's associated country or region and its currency.
|Card Country / Currency||Fee per registration|
|United States — USD||$0.10 USD|
|Canada — CAD||$0.10 CAD|
|Australia — AUD||$0.10 AUD|
|Singapore — SGD||$0.10 SGD|
|United Kingdom — GBP||£0.10 GBP|
|European Union — EUR||€0.10 EUR|
|Mexico — MXN||$1 MXN|
| All other countries
The default billing currency is USD for all other countries or regions.

How do I get billed?
To enable billing and remove the low usage limit for your registrations, visit the Billing & Usage area from within your Corsizio Settings, and add a debit or credit card for your billed usage. Accepted debit and credit cards include Visa, Mastercard, and American Express.
At the end of each month, if your total usage is above the low volume limit, your payment card will be billed accordingly, and you will be emailed an invoice receipt for your total usage for that month. At any time you can access and download your past invoice receipts in a PDF format from within your account billing area.
Please note that you may see slight differences between the information listed on your invoice for that month and in your report dashboard due to timezone adjustments.
Is usage billing subject to any taxes?
Corsizio is a company based in Ontario, Canada which provides a registration service to businesses worldwide.
- If you are located in Canada, your invoice total is subject to the 13% HST sales tax.
- If you are located in Europe, including the United Kingdom and Ireland, use the reverse charge mechanism for your VAT remittance. The European Commission DG Taxation web page provides additional information.
- If you are located in the US, Australia, New Zealand, or any other country not mentioned above, your bill will not include any taxes.
Does usage billing apply to free, charity, or not-for-profit events?
Yes, if they fall within the higher volume usage. We aim to provide everyone equally with an ultra-low, highly discounted, pay-per-use, and cost-effective model for higher volume needs and free usage for low volume needs. This means all of our users get access to all of our features, support, security, data storage, and service value regardless of what kind of events they offer.
What happens if you disable usage billing?
If you decide to disable your billing at any time during a billing cycle, your account will continue to accept unlimited registrations until the end of the month, and your final bill will be at the end of that month's billing cycle. At the end of that month, you will receive your final invoice. Going forward your account will be back on the free, low usage limit, meaning that you can receive up to 50 registrations each month and you are not billed for these registrations.
If you decide to delete your entire account while you still have billing enabled, then the system will immediately send you the final invoice, if applicable, and close the billing cycle.
Keep in mind that you can continue to keep billing enabled even if you don't use Corsizio for several weeks or months at a time, as you will not be charged anything. Even when you do use Corsizio, if your total volume is only up to 50 registrations in any given month, then you also do not get billed for that low volume usage.
What if my billing payment fails?
If your account's billing payment for the previous month's usage on Corsizio was declined by your card issuer, this may occur for a number of reasons, like insufficient funds or certain card restrictions. The best way to solve this is to contact your card issuer for more information and to clear the issue. You can also change your billing card to a different one if that would be more appropriate in your case, and the payment will be retried immediately.
Note: Corsizio is a company based in Canada, and often, the most common reason for a failed payment is that your credit card company or bank does not allow cross-border usage. If this is the case, you will need to contact your credit card company or bank to authorize the transaction.
If you leave the same card on file, our system will retry the payment again in a few days from the last failed attempt, but only up to 3 times. We hope that you can resolve the issue before then, and to prevent your account from being locked automatically. Let us know if you have any questions, and to make sure your account stays in good standing and to continue accepting registrations.
