Frequently asked questions

Looking for more info? Here are some things we're commonly asked

Do you offer discounts?

Yes. When you pay for a year up front, you get a ~20% discount. We do not run any other promotions, campaigns, offers or discounts outside of this. Not even on Black Friday.

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept all major credit and debit cards such as Visa, Mastercard, or American Express. We also accept annual invoiced payments and bank transfers for customers on the Business plan. We do not accept Paypal.

Will I be charged when my trial expires?

No. When your trial ends you'll be prompted to choose a paid plan to continue using Ghost. If you don't choose a plan, you won't be charged, and we tidy things up and delete all your personal data from our servers. If you want to try Ghost again in future, feel free to sign up for a fresh trial.

Do both free and paid subscribers count as "members" in Ghost?

Yes. Every user with an active account to subscribe to emails or login to your site counted as a member, whether free or paid.

Can I cancel anytime and get a refund?

You can cancel your Ghost account at any time, but we do not offer refunds on payments that have already been made toward your service.

What if none of these plans fit my budget?

Ghost is free and open source software. You can self host Ghost on your own server, computer, or Raspberry Pi to have full control over your production environment. We aren't able to provide customer support for self-hosted installations, so if you need help troubleshooting, you'll want to ask for help on our community forums.

Can I easily transition from self-hosted to Ghost(Pro) or vice-versa?

Yes. You can export your data and move between different hosts whenever you'd like. If you're moving from self-hosted to Ghost(Pro), we can help you with the migration.

What if I have more questions?

Send an email to support@ghost.org and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
