How long do your plans run?

For the monthly plan (payment via credit card), there is a minimum runtime of one month. A yearly plan (payment in advance via invoice) has a minimum runtime of 12 months. It will be automatically extended for 12 more months unless you decide to cancel 3 months prior to the end of the prior period (see also our terms and conditions).

Can I switch between plans?

Yes, you can change your plan at any time.

Do I need to enter my credit card details for the trial period?

No. All you need to get started with your free trial is some basic information about your company.

Can I try any plan in the trial period?

You will be able to test all available features during the trial period. Once the trial period has expired, you will be asked to purchase a paid plan. All the data you entered during the trial period will be transferred to your paid account.

Can I watch a presentation of the features?

Yes. Based on your HR processes, we can show you how to make best use out of Personio. Together we can determine whether Personio is the matching HR management and recruiting solution for you. You can find more information here.
