SearchBug Payment Plans

We offer two types of payment plans: Prepaid Plan and Pay As You Go Plan. Our Prepaid Plan is a great option for anyone who plans on using our instant online searches often and wants to save time and money as well as the hassle of having to approve multiple small charges to your credit card each time you order a paid search. Both payment options include no setup fee, no cancellation fee and no monthly minimums. All plans support multi-user accounts with individual usage reports for businesses or users needing individual accounting.

It's securely saved in your account. You will see a charge from SearchBug on your credit card statement for each individual search.
  • Requires valid credit card for both individual and business accounts
  • Fees are charged to credit card for each paid search
  • No discounts apply
