Payments will be due in the currency set out in the applicable Statement of Subscription. In the case of recurring payments (including the Subscription Fee) Motive.co provides to the customer the possibility of electronic payment by Visa and Mastercard credit card through its Subscription platform and SEPA Direct Debit.
Invoices for the Fees are issued automatically at the payment time, and Customer agrees that Motive.co may issue its invoices to Customer in electronic form, in accordance with applicable legislation.

If Customer is required to withhold or deduct any portion of the payments due to Motive.co, Customer will increase the sum payable to Motive.co by the amount necessary so that Motive.co receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had Customer made no withholdings or deductions or provide Motive.co the corresponding tax withholding certificate.
Change of plan
The Fees set out in the Subscription Statement depend on the package selected by the Customer. In case that a Customer exceeds the number of queries included in the chosen packages as an average during three consecutive (3) months , Motive.co reserves the right to change the Customer to the applicable plan and pricing for the new queries volume. Motive will notify of the change to the Customer.
