Additional features

  • Telehealth by SimplePractice is included in the monthly subscription of the Essential and Plus plans at no additional cost. It’s also available as an add-on feature on the Starter plan for an additional $15/mo.
  • Wiley Treatment Planner is included in the monthly subscription of the Plus plan at no additional cost. It’s also available as an add-on feature on the Essential plan for an additional $15/mo. 
  • Appointment reminders are included in the monthly subscription of the Essential and Plus plans at no additional cost.

Credit card processing

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

Our credit card processing system is fully PCI-compliant, gives you the ability to store cards securely, and saves you time because you don't have to manually enter payments. The integration fee is 2.95% + $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 your leisure. 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 refer to Does SimplePractice have any discounts or current promotions? to find more information about promotions for SimplePractice customers. 

Tip: If you're shopping around for an EHR, make sure that 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 and then you have the option to sign up for a monthly payment plan. If changing from one plan type to another results in a credit on your account, we will automatically apply that credit to your new plan. 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."

You can cancel the service at any time, but you are responsible for any charges already incurred.

Do you have a referral program?

We’ve made it incredibly easy for you to refer your colleagues and earn $100 credits on your subscription plan. All you have to do is 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 with a paid SimplePractice account, you get a $100 credit and so do they. Just 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. 

You can learn more about how to refer a colleague here.

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

You are in control of which plan you use and you can change it at any time. If you upgrade your subscription plan, your account will be charged the pro-rated difference. If you later decide to choose a lower plan, your account will be credited the pro-rated difference. You can change plans as often as you like. To compare plans, please see our Pricing page. You can find instructions for updating and upgrading your plan in this guide: SimplePractice Subscription Billing Information.

Note: SimplePractice accepts Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, JCB, and Diner's Club cards. 

Can I put my account on hold?

We do not offer a way to put an account on hold. 

Note: See SimplePractice Subscription Billing Information to learn more about making changes to your subscription plan.
