What is Fego’s role in the Account Aggregator network?
Fego is an authorised Technology Service Provider (TSP) in the Account Aggregator ecosystem that offers Financial Data Intelligence and Personal Finance Management Tools atop the Account Aggregator data stream. Through our FegoConnect SDK, we quickly connect with multiple Account Aggregators and offer exceptional coverage with more banks and financial institutions across India.
What billing period do I pay for?
Fego charges for the subsequent 30-day billing cycle. For example: If you made a monthly payment of ₹1,00,000 using your credit card on September 10th, 2022, the invoice billing period would be from September 10th, 2022 to October 10th, 2022.
How do prorated charges work?
Though Fego generates invoices on a monthly basis, charges involved with each experience, connect, checks and insights product are calculated based on API-usage.
How's the total on my invoice calculated?
Your invoice total is calculated by the sum of prorated charges from the previous billing period and your current usage of API calls, minus any available Fego credits on your account. The total on your invoice will match the total amount on your receipt.
Does my plan auto-renew?
Fego plans renew automatically whether a billing cycle is monthly or yearly. The account plan will renew on the same day of the month that it was upgraded. It should be noted that if you switch plans in the midst of a billing cycle, a prorated refund of Fego credits will be immediately applied to that account. It will take a month after your most recent billing for this credit refund to process.
Can I pay for Fego by invoice?
Currently, it's only possible to upgrade your plan and pay for Fego with a credit/debit card. For enterprise accounts with a minimum of 5,00,000 API requests, we do have an invoice payment option. If you're interested, get in touch with us to discuss the options.
What types of payments are accepted?
You can pay via Net Banking, Credit/Debit Card, NEFT or RTGS towards any of our plans. If you need any specific support, please reach out to us at email@example.com.
How do I change the credit card I use for billing?
You can update your credit card details from the payment section on your account settings page.
How do I proceed if my credit card is declined?
Please ensure that your credit card details are accurate (expiry date, CVV code, etc.), and that you are typing the number completely without any dashes or spaces. You might need to follow up with your bank to check if there are any problems on their end if your credit card is still not processed. If you're still experiencing difficulties, please click here to talk with us.
Why did my payment fail?
Razorpay handles the payment processing for Fego. For a list of possible reasons why a payment might not go through, kindly follow this link.
Do you accept direct payments?
Please let us know if you continuously face payment issues while paying through our payment processor. We will send you a unique link with details of the invoice via which you can directly to our bank account.
When do I get my refund?
Prorated Refunds for switching from an Enterprise to Grow or Launch would be given as Fego credits and are added to your account when your subsequent invoice is generated. However, please note that no credits will be given if you switch to a free account; instead, you will retain access to your premium plan until the end of the current billing month.
How are recurring charges handled?
The payment card that the account "owner" submitted will be used for all initial and continuing charges for the account. The account is open to other users, but they are not charged. Plan modifications are prorated automatically, accounting to the plan switches. We charge or credit for any adjustments once a month, on both monthly and yearly plans. Having all features in a single upgraded account is usually advisable.
What happens if I switch from a monthly to a yearly plan? Or vice versa?
In contrast to your current billing plan, switching between monthly and yearly plans results in an immediate invoice (and potential fee). The revised date will also be changed for the monthly billing date.
Do you provide any discounts?
Although we don't give any direct discounts, many of our partners make good progress with our launch plan—one of the most flexible plans available, until they decide it's financially viable to upgrade to access our Grow and Enterprise features and higher storage limits. In the interim, you can minimise the amount you'd have to pay out of pocket by using the credits you earn through referring others to Fego. Any other queries, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I have multiple account administrators?
Fego accounts are able to accommodate many administrators at the same time.
Does my Fego account have team permissions?
You can add people as team members rather than account admins if you want to restrict them with permissions like view-only or access to only specific features.
How can I add or delete team members and administrators from my account as an owner?
Depending on how much access you want to give to the features and API limitations, you can add as many admins and team members as you want.
How can I get access to my billing details?
The account settings page gives you access to all of your billing information.
Why can't I access the settings page for my account?
You won't be able to access the account settings page if you are not the owner or administrator of the account. If you require access to the account settings page, kindly get in touch with your account owner.
How do I cancel or deactivate my Fego account?
Kindly contact our support at email@example.com to remove or cancel your account.
Is Fego free?
