Hosting Subscription Fees

Select Plan requires a $29.95 monthly hosting fee and Pro Plan requires a $39.95 monthly hosting fee. Hosting fees are billed annually to reduce transaction costs. This fee applies whether your app and or website is live in either or, or both, the Apple and Android App stores.

Maintenance fee covers all items below:

  • App Store Hosting
  • Functionality in all Standard Features
  • Push Notifications
  • Portal Access to Manage App Updates

1. Payments for a Hosting Subscription will be processed by a third party appointed by FarmAppetit for such purpose (“Payment Processor”), and which may be changed from time to time, at FarmAppetit’s sole discretion. For clarity, all payments and payment related issues shall be handled exclusively by the Payment Processor.

2. Hosting subscriptions require a credit card issued by one of the major credit card companies or any other payment method to the extent offered.

3. Upon the publishing of the mobile app/s and or mobile website, you acknowledge and agree that recurring billing will be automatically charged by the Payment Processor, on an on-going annual basis.

5. Your mobile app and/or mobile website will not be LIVE until the Payment Processor has verified that your credit card or any other payment method you have provided (to the extent applicable) for payment, is accurate and valid. Once you have initiated payment, the Payment Processor will inform you whether the payment has been successfully processed or if it failed. If payment verification has failed, you will be asked to provide an alternative credit card or payment method (to the extent applicable).

6. Payments are nonrefundable. If you are dissatisfied with your products and/or services for any reason, and choose to cancel your hosting subscription, you will receive a refund based on unused time during the annual billing cycle (minus registration fee, Payment Processors’ fees and overage charges or other fees, all to the extent applicable) in accordance with the Payment Processor terms.
