Proration comes into play when you as a customer receives service for only part of the billing cycle. There are several cases where this can occur, notably when upgrading or downgrading a subscription during the billing cycle (which means, for example, adding or deleting users).
When a your plan changes during a billing cycle, a proration line item is applied on their next invoice. If a customer whose subscription is billed on the first of the month changes to a more expensive plan, they receive a credit for the unused portion of the old plan and are billed for only the remainder of the month for the new plan.
The prorated amount is calculated down to the second by EducationLink. We calculate the difference between the two plans based on the time you added or deleted a user, using the current billing period’s start and end times.
