[KB] End User - General information about Payments and Billing

Last edited: 19.04.24

Before starting

  • Payments and billing demands can only be requested by the Account Holder. If a Family Member requests these changes, please remind them about this rule.
  • Tagus currently accepts credit card and payroll* for all regions, and SEPA for EU.
    *(payroll or paycheck is when the user pays for their subscription via payroll deduction. This option is only available if the user's company offers it as a payment method)
  • The billing date is the date when a user's payment cycle starts and ends. This means that it is the date when the user is charged for their plan, and it marks the beginning and end of the payment period.
  • The user is able to check the payment history and its details in the app, and also request self service receipts.
  • If a company offers Gympass + to its employees, users will see the discount when they buy a plan through the app (in the carousel and subscription confirmation screen).
    Note: In Darwin the discount can be reviewed on the Billing field, including the details of discount provided by the company.

Specificities related to the payment methods

📍 Credit card and Payroll rules

Credit card rules:

  • The user is billed automatically every month on the billing date
  • If the charge is declined, the system will attempt to charge the card again within 48 hours. The table below uses the example of February 10th as the billing date to clarify the billing process:




Feb 10 1st and 2nd Initial attempts to charge the card
Feb 11 3rd The third attempt is on the day after the billing date.
Feb 12 4th and 5th Fourth and fifth attempts two days after the billing date.
Feb 10 - 12 - Users can update credit card details during this period
Post Feb 12 - If payment fails and no update is made, the plan will be canceled
  • Account holders may register different credit cards for their Family Members. The billing address will be associated with the Account Holder.
  • A credit card can only be deleted if an alternative payment method (like payroll or paycheck) is available, or if a new credit card is added to the account.
  • A credit card cannot be removed from the account if it is linked to any active plans.
  • If a credit card payment fails and the user has payroll or paycheck as an alternative payment method, they will receive an email suggesting to update their payment method to payroll or paycheck.


Payroll / Paycheck rules:

  • Payroll or paycheck payments cannot be used for Family Member (FM) subscriptions.
  • If a user attempts to add a Family member and payroll or paycheck is the only saved payment method, they must add a new payment method (such as a Credit Card) to purchase FM subscriptions.
  • Tagus does not prorate subscriptions, regardless of whether payroll or paycheck is used as the payment method.
  • Billing starts after the end of any free trial period, and users are charged monthly via their payroll or paycheck.
  • Refunds for payments made through payroll or paycheck cannot be requested via Darwin.
  • To request a refund, follow the steps described at the process “Refund requests”
