For how many users do I have to pay?

You will be charged for all team members on your Team page except archived. Account owners are free unless they track their own time.

The fees are prorated – if you add an employee for a week, then remove or archive them – you’ll pay for that week only, not month. You are free to add or delete employees, archive or restore them any time as you see fit.

E-commerce and time tracking

How Can Your E-commerce Business Benefit from Time-Tracking

There are clear benefits of shifting your business to the online world and each year people are getting more and more eager to get a piece of the ever-growing e-commerce cake. In the last decade, the online retail market has been growing steadily, and in the US alone the increase peaked at 16% in 2017, which is its highest growth rate since 2011.

The greater interest in e-commerce has lead to a constant rise in competition. The result is an inevitable segmentation of the market, meaning new companies are building their business strategies around servicing specific niches.
