Renderforest features two payment systems. The information about each type is listed on our  Pricing Page.  The plan types, names and prices may change occasionally. Check the Pricing Page before purchasing a video or plan from Renderforest.


For all subscription plans, payment occurs on a pre-pay basis. The amount you are to pay and the length of your videos will depend on the subscription type you choose. Upon the subscription we give our users a certain amount of videos and media storage per month and payment automatically renews at the end of each term.


You can use the intended number of monthly exports. The credits you don't use during the month will be enrolled and added to the next month.


Each subscription plan has a certain amount of HD video credits and length limitations. We’ll charge 1 export credit for each 5 minutes of videos created on our platform. For example, if you create 48-minute video through your business subscription plan, we’ll charge 10 video credits for one export.


All specifications regarding renderforest subscription are visible on pricing page available here.


If you decide to cancel the payment, you should cancel your subscription prior to the next billing term.
