I'm experiencing an issue upgrading my Dropbox Business trial plan to a paid subscription.

New member | Level 2

My business trial ended today and my dropbox Admin Console locked out and my Dropbox stopped syncing and wouldn't even load on my Mac.  I went to the "resubscribe" button and entered my payment information for the upgrade and nothing happened.  I clicked it a couple of more times and nothing happened.  I then logged out and tried the process again...again nothing.  No error messages or anything, just a brief moment where it said processing and then went back to the "submit order" button.  I then tried the whole thing again in Chrome, hoping that was the issue and after a couple of tries of that it said I tried too many times and was now locked out.

 

Of course I'm on a dead line and this happened at the most terrible time.  I tried chatting with "sales" and they couldn't sell anything, only offer a free trial.  Dropbox customer service is really terrible.  I submitted a support ticket, but it seems that I may not hear back from them as late as Friday.  This is totaly BS and I think I'm moving to a company that takes customer support, especially for businesses, more seriously!

Well, I started more calmly this morning after seeing a reply to my request, but then my blood started to boil again when I realized that all they sent me was a link to the renewal payment page that is still not working.

Sorry to keep changing usernames.  I think it was logged into the wrong account.  No response from the billing team.  I opened a new Dropbox business account with a new email and tried to chat with support and they said I basically have to wait for email support.  I literally cannot find anyone at Dropbox who will take my money.  Meanwhile if I don't get this working I'm at risk of losing my biggest client, which in turn will threaten the livelihood of my business.  I guess this is a very good reminder to never put too much faith in an online business, especially one that has zero ability to talk to a human being.   I'm opening a pCloud account and switching everything over to there so we can keep working.  thanks for your help Sanchez

Thanks for bearing with us while we were investigating how to best resolve the billing issue you were experiencing jayaproductions
 
I’m just updating this discussion here, as I can see that our team payments specialist had replied on your open ticket on Monday. As our specialized technicians have identified where the issue lies & they’re currently working towards a solution, they’ve made sure to extend your trial. This way, you can use Dropbox to accommodate your current needs until there’s a fix put in place & re-upgrade at the end of your new trial. 
 
I hope that this is helpful to you & please accept my apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused you in the meantime. I remain at your entire disposal should you need further assistance!
