Trials are a way for you to give subscribers a chance to evaluate your content before having to pay. When a reader subscribers to a list that offers a trial, they will be subscribed like usual, but their card will not be charged until the end of the trial period. The trial period can range from 1 to 30 days. If the reader unsubscribes before the trial period is over, they will not be charged.
Trials are offered per-plan, so you can have trials on all plans, a single plan, or no plans at all.
Offering a Trial
First, create a new plan for your list.
Next, fill out the various plan fields.
Finally, in the Trial Period Days field, enter the number of days (between 1-30) you would like to offer as a trial period. If you don't want to offer a trial, leave this field blank.
Now, whenever someone signs up for a plan with a trial, they'll receive any content you send through Mailchimp for the duration of the trial period before we charge them.
