As noted in the summary article of how billing works, Group billing means that you’ll pay for all seats within your brokerage under your credit card, and you’ll be able to assign which brokerage members receive paid seats and which ones do not. You can choose this option simply by purchasing 2 or more seats during your first time when buying new seats.
By default, the brokerage member who originally subscribes to Group billing is only person who can purchase additional seats for the brokerage, and the only person who can assign seats to other brokerage members (i.e. the person who originally subscribes to Group billing is considered the sole "subscriber" in the brokerage). This default is completely independent on whether the subscriber of Group billing has admin permissions or not, and completely independent on whether other brokerage members have admin permissions or not. For example, you may not have admin permissions, but if you are the original subscriber to Group billing, only you will be able to purchase additional seats or assign seats to other brokerage members.
To sign up for Group billing and pay for multiple seats within your brokerage, first click on the red "Subscribe Now" button in the upper-right corner:
Next, you can choose how many seats you want to purchase and how much the total pricing will be for the number of seats that you're purchasing (left side), along with the ability to enter in your credit card information and any promocodes (right side).
You must change the number of seats to be 2 or more seats. If you leave it as 1 seat, you'll be signing up for Individual billing instead of Group billing, so it's very important to buy at least 2 seats when you're checking out. To change the number of seats, just enter in the number of seats (or use the arrows) in the "Seats" box on the left-hand side:
Once you've entered in the number of seats that you'd like to purchase, it will show you the new total dollar amount that you'll be paying for all of the new seats purchased. From there, simply enter in your credit card number, security code, and expiration date on the right side. If you have a promocode, enter it in the promocode box. If you press the green "Apply" button, you'll see the amount of your discounted pricing with the promocode. As the final step, click the orange "Submit Credit Card" button, and your credit card will be charged for the total amount shown to you based on the number of seats that you purchase.
After you've finished purchasing multiple seats, you can assign seats to members within your brokerage.
Remember that if you choose Group billing, that you'll need to be the sole subscriber in purchasing seats for everyone else within your brokerage from that point on. We do not currently support a mixture of Group and Individual billing within a brokerage (i.e. you can’t pay for 2 seats in your brokerage and then have a 3rd person pay for his/her own seat). You must choose one option or the other.
If you ever want to view the details of your Individual Billing subscription, you can easily do that by going to your Billing page. To go to your Billing page, first click on the drop-down arrow next to your name in the upper-right corner, and then click on the "Billing" link in the window that appears:
From there, you'll be able to see the details of your subscription plan, as well as purchase additional seats and add/delete your credit card info:
