Hotjar allows you to make yearly payments for your plans either by a manual invoice or automatically through your Plans & Billing page. The billing cycle selected, either monthly or yearly, applies to your entire account. This means you'll be charged for all plans across all the sites in your account on either the monthly or yearly cycle that you've chosen.
When yearly payments are set up in-app on the Plans & Billing page with a credit card or PayPal, a 20% discount prior to VAT is added to your bill. This discount applies even if you're receiving a bundle discount for having a paid plan for both Ask and Observe in-app with credit card or PayPal.

Manual invoice payment by bank transfer
Payment by bank transfer/invoice is limited to Ask or Observe Scale Plans
Invoicing is only available for our Ask or Observe Scale plans and accounts spending 389 $/€ or more per month. To upgrade to the Scale plan, reach out to our Sales team through the Hotjar pricing page.
Customers making yearly payments via manual invoice DO NOT receive the 20% discount available to customers that pay in-app via credit card or PayPal.
If you would like to get started setting up a manual invoice payment by bank transfer, reach out to our Sales team for a yearly estimate.
An estimate for the yearly subscription will be sent and once you've accepted, we can share the formal invoice. When we have received a purchase order or payment confirmation of the bank transfer, we will update and lock your yearly subscription for the year.
How do I downgrade once I've paid via a yearly invoice?
