Last year I purchased 2 licenses of Bitdefender Internet Security 2015 and bought prior bitdefender products. Anyway, I received an automatic renewal email from Avangate customer service.
Email details......... Avangate will automatically renew your license for the amount of 159.90 USD, using your registered information. A separate email with the transaction details for this recurrent billing will be sent to you on the expiration date.
I was able to successfully stop automatic renewal through Avangate account. Didn't know password, but was able to reset it and get in.
What is the benefit of automatic renewal ?
I was only going to renew one license, maybe get others later on, not sure I'll get any now. I build computers for others and usually install virus protection of my choosing. For some reason Avangate was going to charge me $159.90 USD , (I live in Canada, so what is that....$210 CAD?). I noticed on your site you are offering same product for approx. $40 CAD (1 license). So automatic renewal would have cost me an extra $130 CAD if I wanted 2 licenses?
Auto renewal should be an option when buying, maybe a little checkbox for those that do.
I have about 5 days before expiry date..........I don't think I'll be renewing bitdefender.
