16.2 Upgrading an Account

The FileThis Basic account fetches document once a week for up to six account and provides secure storage space of 500 MB—for only $2 per month. As you start to see the benefits of FileThis, you are likely to want more connections and more space. Plans include:
  • Basic $2 per month: Fetch once per week, six connections, 500 MB storage
  • Premium $20 per year: Fetch once per week, 12 connections, 1 GB storage
  • Ultimate $50 three years: Fetch daily, 30 connections, 10 GB storage

To best review the options, you may want to upgrade from a browser rather than the FileThis mobile app.

Upgrading Using a Browser

When upgrading from a browser, you have more upgrade options and the ability to earn more connections and storage space. For each friend you invite who creates a first account, you will earn one connection and 250 MB of space up to 20 connections and 200 MB of space. You can also view details on the various plans and upgrade to Premium or Ultimate.

    2.    Select Account from the menu to display the FileThis Account dialog box, which shows how many connections you have and how much space you are using.

3.    Click Upgrade (or, to earn connections and space, click Invite a Friend).

    4.    View the account options and click the one that works best for you.

    5.    Click Upgrade Plan and follow the payment instructions onscreen.

Upgrading Using the FileThis Mobile App
