If possible, choose your Currency on top. Not all countries can choose between different currencies, so you may not see that option.

Also, you may see the option to choose between the Flexible plan and the Annual plan. As you’ll quickly notice, there is no upside to going on the Annual plan nowadays (or at least this is the case at the time of creating this tutorial – you should confirm this yourself) – the pricing remains the same, and you still get charged per month. The only difference is that with the Annual plan, you’re agreeing to keep using the services for an entire year, and if you cancel prematurely, you will face an unavoidable close-out fee.

Select Flexible plan and click CHECKOUT at the bottom.
