Brightwing Store Locator Pricing & Ordering
We use secure online ordering, and you pay only for the number of locations you have and no more. Because of this and our thorough automation, we are able to offer Brightwing Store Locator at the lowest cost to you. Your rate is automatically adjusted as you add or remove locations. Each time you administer your account, you receive a report of your account's credit status and time remaining.
How do we do this?
You purchase credits from us using your credit card. You then consume credits faster if you have more locations, or slower if you have fewer locations.
What's a credit?
One credit will operate your searcher for one location, for one year. For example, if you have 100 locations, and you want to operate the searcher for a year, you will need to purchase 100 credits. NOTE: Due to the high cost of data from Canada Post, each Canadian location you have will use credits 1.67 times as fast as a USA location. You can purchase credits in various blocks (quantities), depending on how many locations you have, and how long you want to operate the searcher. The pricing table below shows block sizes to operate searchers for a year, for various sized organizations. You will notice that the cost per credit is substantially discounted for larger orders.
If you don't happen to have, say, exactly 100 locations, don't worry. You could buy the next block size up, and get more than a year of service, or buy the next block size down and get a bit less time. In either case, we will tell you exactly when your service will expire, and update you every time you log in. If you add or subtract locations, the expiration date will be automatically adjusted and reported to you.
Remember, you do not have to spend a dime until you have seen the service work for you for 30 days. Your 30 day free trial starts the day you upload your data. Once you're convinced, purchase credits to extend your service period as needed. If you purchase any time before the free trial ends, you still get the full 30 free days. You don't start using up credits until the free trial period is complete. If you need some time to think about it after the free trial (or perhaps the rest of your site isn't ready yet), you can leave your account inactive until you are ready to go live. In this time period, you can still perform all your maintenance operations. Only the publicly visible search function is disabled.
How is the purchase made?
You can pay by credit card, check, or money order. Credit card orders are processed instantly, by secure connection. If you prefer to pay by check or money order, print out the onscreen order form, and order by mail. After you place the order, you will be sent a credit key (password) by e-mail. Enter the credit key into your Brightwing Store Locator administration form, and you will be instantly credited for the credits you purchased. The extension is added to whatever time you had remaining, if any. Your extended expiration date will be reported to you on screen. Additionally, you will receive an e-mail receipt for the transaction.
You can purchase a credit key in any of the block sizes shown in the table below. The table shows examples of the pricing for various customers. For example, in the second row of the table, a customer with 100 locations who wants to subscribe for a year, would select a block of 100 credits. This customer would pay $15.00 per month, for a total annual cost of $180. Monthly costs are rounded to the nearest penny in the table, so they may not multiply exactly to the total block price. The block price shown is exact.
If you don't happen to have exactly 100 locations, but wish to subscribe for at least a year, select the next closest block size. For example, if you have 90 locations, you could buy a block of 100 credits which would actually last you 1 year plus 40 days.
Notice that there are substantial discounts for volume purchases. It is less expensive to buy a year's subscription up front, than to buy it by the month. There is no requirement to buy a whole year at once, however. You are welcome to purchase any length of subscription, with a minimum of 1 month.
