Information about payment and subscriptions on DroneDeploy


Will I be automatically billed when my current billing cycle completes?

Yes. DroneDeploy is a subscription that recurs monthly or annually. You must downgrade your account to 'Explorer' to turn off automatic billing.

Is it safe to use my credit card, and is my information secure?

Yes. Your payment information isn't stored by DroneDeploy - instead, we use Chargify, a dedicated and secure payment company.

Our online credit card sales are secured with SSL technology, the most secure encryption technology currently available for electronic transactions. Chargify uses the same credit card networks that retail stores use when you make a credit card purchase in person.

My credit card number isn't accepted or is declined

Please check with your bank if it is being declined; sometimes cards are declined unless the bank has authorization. If your bank hasn't declined the charge, please contact us at

Cancelling Your Subscription

  • Any upgrade changes you make will reflect immediately, and we will prorate your account with your existing payments when you upgrade.
  • Any downgrade changes (or cancellations) will be reflected at the end of the current billing cycle.

For example, if you choose to upgrade your account from Lite to Individual, the change would be in effect immediately.

Please note that there will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, or refunds for months unused with an open account. In order to treat everyone equally, no exceptions will be made.

Can I buy one month at a time?

Yes - when you subscribe to DroneDeploy, you will prepay for a month and enroll in an automatic subscription. If you cancel your subscription before the recurring payment, you will be charged for only a single month.

Can I still access my data if I do not have an active subscription? How long is my data stored?

Please see our MSA (Master Services Agreement) Section 3.2 Data Privacy and Security for the most up-to-date information on data storage.

Can I change the email address on my account?

If you request an email change on your account, please email for further assistance.
