Information about free trials

Signing up for a free trial

We offer free trials on all of our products and plans. To get started, head over to our pricing page and select the product you'd like to take for a spin.

If you already have an account and you're logged in, you'll be taken straight to your dashboard with the trial enabled. If you have an account and you're not logged you, you can enter your login credentials and you'll then be taken to your dashboard with the trial enabled. If you don't already have an account, you'll just need to enter your email address and choose a password.

📝 Please note, it is not possible to start a trial of the Publish Premium or Business plans if you're currently subscribed to the Pro plan and paying via the App Store on iOS or Google Play Store on Android. Please get in touch if you're paying via one of these methods and you'd like to start a trial of another plan.

Completing a trial

Buffer Publish

If you're currently on the Free plan, and you'd like to move ahead with the subscription at the end of your trial, all you need to do is head to the Billing area within your account (Preferences > Billing), enter your credit card details, choose either the monthly or yearly billing cycle, and you should be all set!

If you're already on a paid plan (e.g. Pro or Premium), and you'd like to move ahead with an upgrade at the end of your trial, you won't need to do anything at all. Your account will be automatically upgraded at the end of your trial and the first payment will be taken. If you do not wish to upgrade, you will need to head to the Billing area within your account and cancel your trial.

The transition from trial to subscription is seamless and all of your connected social accounts, scheduled posts and analytics will remain in place.

Buffer Analyze

If you'd like to subscribe to Analyze at the end of your trial, you'll need to head to the Billing area within your account (Settings > Billing Method), enter your credit card details, choose either the monthly or yearly billing cycle, and you should be all set!
