- You may pre-purchase Plan Capacity and User Capacity, granting you available credits towards the addition of Plans and Authorised Users to your Plan Account. Plan Capacity and User Capacity is purchased in accordance with our pricing schedule, available at [#insert URL#].

- On adding a Plan, you must enter in some basic search terms applicable to the Plan.
