How to sign up for the free trial
Here at Wordtracker every new customer gets a free trial for 7 days. We do require card details to get the free trial but there is no charge until the end of your 7-day free trial.
The process to sign up is really simple. Just navigate to one of the 'Sign Up' links which you can find on the site or just click here to sign up. Clicking the link will take you straight through to the sign-up page which looks like this:
The buttons marked on the image show how you can switch between monthly and annual pricing. If you have arrived on the page via a coupon link you may find that only certain plans are available, as the coupon may be valid only for particular plans.
Once you have selected your plan and pricing just click the appropriate 'Try Free' button and you will be presented with this page. The plan name will differ depending on your selection...
Simply enter your email address and the password you want to use for the account. Make sure to use your actual email and not a fake one as you will need to use your email to recover your account if anything should go wrong. It is also used for account verification.
On the next screen you just need to fill in your card details and that's it!
Why do we need your card details for a free trial?
Good question! The answer is because of the amount of scraping that goes on. Offering a free trial without taking card details meant it was very hard to stop people signing up for multiple accounts and scraping the data, slowing down the system. Having to enter valid card details prevents this from happening which means a quicker tool for genuine users.
But, don't worry! We don't charge until after the 7-day trial has expired, so your trial period is completely free.
Make sure you always check for the padlock icon on any page where you enter personal details (especially financial).
Suppose I don't want to move to a paid account?
You can cancel at any time during the trial period via the 'My Account' link on the top right in the tool.
Click on the 'My Account' link and you'll see an option to 'click here' to cancel renewal. Once you do this you will not be charged but your account will remain open for the remainder of the trial period. If you cancel during the free trial, you won’t be charged anything. You can also email us to request cancellation.
Hang on, where's my free trial?
If you have signed up for Wordtracker previously, you won't get another free trial. However, we do renew this whenever we roll out a major change to the tool or a new feature. So if you had an account some time ago and are coming back to us, you will get a new trial. However if you've signed up, used the free trial and tried to sign up again for another trial, we'd request that you go straight to a paid account. Don't worry though, this is all messaged clearly within the sign-up process.
