Step 3: Select your preferred payment option

A contract with Lightspeed entails a 1-year subscription from the date of purchase. You can pay for your subscription on a monthly basis, or pay for several months in advance (which entitles you to a discount). If you opt for payment in advance, the corresponding amount will be deducted from your bank account upon signing. If you do not want a discount, deductions will be carried out each month.

Select your preferred payment option from the drop-down:

  • No discount – You must pay the standard fee of your subscription package each month.
  • 6 months (4%) – You pay the first 6 months in advance and the remaining balance each month, thereafter. This will ultimately result in a 4% discount on your 1-year subscription.
  • 12 months (8%) – You pay your 1-year subscription in full upon signing. This will ultimately result in an 8% discount on your 1-year subscription.
  • 24 months (16%) – You opt for a 2-year subscription, to be paid in full upon signing, with a 16% discount.
  • 36 months (24%) - You opt for a 3-year subscription, to be paid in full in upon signing, with a 24% discount.

To complete your subscription, click I agree with the terms and conditions and sign where indicated using your mouse. (You can reset the signature field if needed.)
