Credit card processing

If you're planning to accept credit card payments through our integrated payment processing system, please see Getting Started with Online Payments in SimplePractice.

Our credit card processing system is fully PCI-compliant, giving you the ability to store cards securely, and saving you time with automated payment options. The integration fee is 3.15% + $0.30 for each successful transaction - and that's across the board, whether you're running the card at the time of service or if you've stored the card to charge at a later time. Some card processors may offer a lower fee for card-in-hand transactions, but a much higher one for card-absent transactions.

Discounts and promotions

If you're interested in receiving free credits you can use towards your SimplePractice subscription fee, see our Refer-a-Colleague: SimplePractice referral program.

You can also see Does SimplePractice have any discounts or current promotions? to learn more about existing promotions for SimplePractice customers. 

Tip: If you're shopping around for an EHR, make sure you ask about any hidden costs that may not be listed on a company's pricing page. SimplePractice lists everything and believes in pricing transparency, so that you can make the best decision for your practice. 

Do you offer refunds?

SimplePractice provides a 30-day free trial. After your trial, you have the option to sign up for a paid SimplePractice account. If changing from one plan type to another results in a credit on your account, we will automatically apply that credit to your subscription. We do not provide refunds.

We clearly provide our refund policy to you in Section 25 of our Terms of Service:

"Upon termination by You or by SimplePractice of your Account, you will not receive any refund of any amounts previously paid and you will remain liable for any charges incurred or unpaid amounts owed by you to SimplePractice."

Prior to making a change to your subscription, you'll see a modal that reminds you of our no-refund policy. You can cancel your subscription at any time, but you are responsible for any charges already incurred.

Do you have a referral program?

You can refer your colleagues to SimplePractice and earn $100 credits toward your subscription plan. To do this, use our automated referral system that is located in your SimplePractice account.


You can invite people right from SimplePractice, and even send your custom referral link to your Twitter followers or Facebook friends.

If colleagues you invite sign up for a paid SimplePractice account, you both get a $100 credit applied to your subscription. When signing up, make sure that your colleague clicks on the referral link before creating a free trial account. This $100 credit will apply to the next billing cycle on your account after your referee makes their first subscription payment.

What happens if I change plans or upgrade my trial account?

You can change your subscription plan at any time. If you upgrade your subscription plan, your account will be charged the pro-rated difference. If you choose a less expensive plan or remove certain features, your account will be credited the pro-rated difference. To compare plans, please see our Pricing page. You can find instructions for changing your plan here: SimplePractice Subscription Billing Information.

Note: SimplePractice accepts Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, JCB, and Diner's Club cards as a form of subscription payment. 

Can I put my account on hold?

SimplePractice does not offer a way to put your account on hold.
