Fees and Registration Requirements for Users
FloorPlanOnline offers services targeted to real estate professionals, property owners, developers, builders and Service Providers to the real estate industry. To receive these services, Users ordering FloorPlanOnline Services must accurately complete a registration for each desired service and agree to relevant payment obligations. Depending on the service chosen, Users may be required to supply a valid credit card that is available for periodic payments.
All fees payable to FloorPlanOnline are non refundable. Some services may be subject to local sales tax and services that are taxable may vary based on the types of services purchased.
Membership Account Types
FloorPlanOnline offers two basic account types for Users who use the FloorPlanOnline services. – Pay per Tour or Subscription. General terms of each account is described below:
- Pay per Tour Users – Users may register as a Pay per Tour user. With this account plan, you pay a one-time fee as each tour is created that covers the initial production and service work related to the tour, and hosting and support for one year from the initial production date of the tour. The pricing of each tour depends on the type and services rendered. There are no monthly or set-up fees with this account option. Hosting of the tour beyond 12 months from the date the tour is first produced will require a renewal fee to be paid by User. FloorPlanOnline will provide notice to the registered User within 30 days of such renewal period and will seek payment at the then current rate for the service ordered. See our current pricing page for more information on the types of tours and pricing. Users are expected to pay for the tour at the time the tour is produced. If FloorPlanOnline is not able to bill for the services, it has the right to disable the tour and associated account until such time as it collects payment.
- Subscription Users – Subscribers may register for either a monthly or an annual service plan with FloorPlanOnline. Subscribers are entitled to create unlimited virtual tours in their account for the stated subscription fee. Users may also pay an upgrade fee to enhance the tour with content such as floor plans, vanity domain names, 3D RoomPlanner and more. See our Prices to view the current rates for our services. As long as the User’s account is in good standing and current, the virtual tours will never expire. If we are unable to bill a User’s account for any period, we will attempt to collect payment over a 10 day period by sending email notifications and/or other means of direct communication. If we are unable to collect payment during this 10 day period, the User’s account will be suspended and all tours will be disabled from public view. The account will remain in suspended status until the earlier of bringing the account up to good standing, which includes paying all cumulative subscription charges, or 6 months. If we are unable to collect payment at the end of 6 months, the account will be deleted, along with all tours. Subscription accounts are intended to be used by individual persons or small (3 or less people) teams for their own business need. If a User is providing multiple virtual tours for multiple people out of one account, then a company license is required. FloorPlanOnline will monitor account usage and has the right to adjust the pricing of a particular account if the account is being used for more than one individual user. Please contact Sales at 866-810-3816, option 2 if you would like to purchase a corporate license for one account.
Users may change account types (from Pay per Tour to Subscription, or vise versa). There may be a cost in changing from a Subscription account to a Pay per Tour account. The cost depends on how many tours were created under the Subscription account and the length of time the User has been a subscriber. The conversion cost is a formula based on the number of tours created multiplied by the per tour cost of a base Pay per Tour, less the cumulative amount paid for the subscription service. Please contact customer care if you have questions on the conversion process, by calling 866-810-3816.
Users may also delete their account. To delete an account, go to Edit Profile and select the Delete Account button. Note all tours will be disabled if you delete your account. We will keep a copy of your tours for a period of 6 months, in case you want to reinstate your account.
Service Fees. Pricing is based on the type of account plan a User has and the type of tour and services rendered for each tour. The floor plan services are generally based on a sliding scale based on the size of the property area measured, called the Measured Area of the property under roof, which may include attached garages, finished or unfinished basements, etc. This tracks with the work effort of the Service Provider and FloorPlanOnline in developing the floor plan. The Service Provider will NOT measure and draw porches, decks, guest houses, pools, and other areas of the property not under roof unless you specifically request it to be measured and drawn. In this case, these areas may increase the total Approximate Measured Area and the fee you pay since that adds to the total area measured. Please note, you may also ask the Service Provider to NOT measure and draw certain areas, at your discretion, such as the unfinished basement. Please specify your request in the Comments/Special Requests section on the order form.
A base fee applies up to the first 2,000 square feet and additional fees apply for each 500 square feet thereafter, depending on the product and service type selected. Click here for the Price Calculator to estimate the base fee for your order and your area. In addition, a difficulty surcharge may apply for architecturally challenging properties. Click here to read more on this surcharge. You will also be charged for Realtor.com linking and other add-on products or services, as you requested on the order form.
A Second Trip Charge may be assessed if you request additional areas of the floor plan to be measured and drawn at a date after the initial field work has been completed. A Second Trip Charge may also be assessed if you request additional areas of the floor plan to be measured and drawn, and/or additional photographs taken, at a date after the initial field work has been completed. Examples (not inclusive) of when a Second Trip Charge will be assessed are as follows:
- The property is not “show ready” for pictures and the decision has been made to delay shooting photos for that day.
- Weather conditions, such as snow or rain, has caused you to request the Service Provider to return to the property another day. In this case, you may want to postpone the appointment.
- No one is at the property at the scheduled time to let the Service Provider in to do the work for the order (if they need access).
- Agent or property owner fails to notify the Service Provider of any changes to the appointment time.
The Second Trip Charge is currently $100 per occurrence, but please note the fee may be higher in certain areas.
Billing typically occurs at the time a draft link is produced or when you register for a subscription account. You may cancel an order any time up to 24 hours of any scheduled appointment time (for full service orders). If you cancel within the 24 hour period of your appointment, a cancellation fee of $75 will apply. You will be billed for the full price of the order once the Service Provider and/or FloorPlanOnline completes their portion of the work required for the order. No refunds will be allowed once a service provider visits the property. Any questions or billing issues may be addressed by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
