FAQ

1. Can I continue paying-per-transaction?

No, you will not be able to make any product updates or add new products without a WERCSmart subscription.

2. What subscription tier (i.e., product number range) should I select?

Your subscription tier base level is dependent on your number of active products (formulated or articles). You will only be able to select from your base level of number of products and up.

3. What steps should I consider before subscribing (applicable to existing WERCSmart customers)?

We recommend that you evaluate and obsolete any currently archived products because your base subscription tier depends on your number of active products (see above). Also, you may want to seek any required company approvals to prevent processing delays.

4. Can I increase the number of products included in my plan in the middle of the year?

You always have the opportunity to increase the number of products included in your subscription. You will also receive a notification with a prorated invoice if you exceed the number of products included in your plan. You can decrease the number of products only upon annual renewal.

5. How do I pay my subscription?

You can pay by credit card, ACH, PayPal® or wire transfer. Depending on your chosen plan, you can pay monthly, quarterly or multi-year.
