For our advertising service, we offer vendors (i.e., residential solar roof installers) an opportunity to advertise on our reports.
Our paid trials last for a fixed term period (usually 60-days) and expires thereafter. Upon expiration, vendors will have the option to extend to a full 12-month subscription which will come with a charge for an annual subscription, based on the advertising package selected by the vendor. Should a vendor decide not to extend to a full 12-months, all their information (including advertising images) will be removed from PVROOFs server/file and said vendor will not be charged or auto-charged after his/her trial period expires. Consequently, cancellation will mean PVROOF will no longer show nor advertise the said vendors anymore.
Our paid subscription last for a fixed term period (usually 12-months) and rolls thereafter for the same term length. Vendors can cancel anytime during their subscription, and their account will be cancelled before their next subscription period.
To enrol, vendors will receive an email to ‘opt in’ or agree to a 12-month subscription towards the end of their paid trial. Once agreed to, you will be enrolled or signed in for the 12-month subscription, and this will commence as soon as the paid trial ends.
Under the Subscription package, you may cancel your plan at anytime without charge.
