Use Upgrade Credits

Bulk upgrades of Edublogs Pro works differently from a single Edublogs Pro:

  • Single subscriptions of Edublogs Pro are automatically applied to the blog you upgraded and single subscriptions of Edublogs Pro automatically renew unless cancelled prior to the renewal date.
  • Bulk upgrades apply credits to the username of the person who made the purchase. These credits need to be manually applied to each blog you want upgraded.
  • The credit upgrades the blog to Edublogs Pro for a year only.  To renew the subscription for the following year you need to wait until just after the Edublogs Pro subscription expires and then apply a new bulk upgrade credit.  For example, if the bulk upgrade credit expires on 2 Oct, 2016 you need to wait until 3 Oct, 2016 to apply a new bulk upgrade credit.
