You can easily cancel your subscription at any time, but no refunds are provided for prorated periods. One exception to this is when you set up a paid subscription for the wrong account–see the next question.
Healthchecks.io will retry charging the configured payment method, and will notify the account owner about the billing problem via email. Read more in the FAQ.
If you upgrade the wrong account by mistake (for example, your personal account instead of your company account), please contact us to issue a refund, so you can avoid getting charged twice.
Yes, each time Healthchecks.io charges your payment method, it will generate and email you a PDF invoice. If you've specified your company details (name, address, VAT ID), they will appear on the invoices. You can specify a separate email address for receiving invoices.

Both plans are similar. The "Supporter" plan is offered in case "Hobbyist" fits your usage, but you wish to support Healthchecks.io financially.
Invite your colleagues to your account so they can access your checks, logs, and configured integrations. Inviting team members is more convenient and secure than sharing a single login and password. Read more about team features.
Healthchecks.io keeps a historical log of the received pings for each monitored job. The log can be helpful for auditing past activity of your cron jobs.
The number limits how many log entries Healthchecks.io will keep for each monitored job. When the limit is reached, the oldest log entries are removed to make room for new ones. You can increase the limit by upgrading to paid plans.
It depends on how frequently your cron job runs and for what period you want to keep a log of received pings. For example, if you monitor a cron job that runs once a week, then the 100 log entries will cover two years. On the other hand, if the cron job runs every 5 minutes, the 100 log entries will only cover 8 hours.
Please do not use multiple accounts to get around the limits of the Hobbyist plan. This will be considered abuse. There are a couple of exceptions, though – read more in the FAQ.
“I'm a happy long-time user of Healthchecks.io and keep coming back to it on new projects, because it's really easy to set up and offers reliable monitoring of all our cron jobs.”
“Healthchecks.io has been extremely reliable and useful for the many years we've been using it. The system is very easy to use and well designed - the UI is clear and works the way you'd expect. The API is really handy too.”
“Healthchecks.io is an absolute lifesaver. I'm using it to monitor an IoT gateway, and once, thanks to the quick heads-up from Healthchecks, was able to save the device from being fried after it had been accidentally placed on top of a hot router while cleaning!”
“Healthchecks.io is a great service. Simple, effective, highly reliable. It's caught issues on multiple occasions so it makes me look good which is always nice.”
