A bi-annual plan billed monthly means that you would be committing for the entire 2 year period, but the bill is paid on a month-by-month basis.
Your subscription begins as soon as your initial payment is processed. Your subscription will automatically renew after the commitment period unless you cancel before then. Galatea will also automatically charge your payment method every month until the end of the subscription duration even if your subscription is set up to not auto-renew at the end of the 2 year period.
Payment will be charged the day of your initial subscription, each month. For example: if you subscribed Jan 22, you will be billed on the 22nd of each month.
Once you have completed the initial commitment period, your subscription will become a standard monthly subscription.
You can cancel any time after your commitment period, and instead of being committed for an additional period, your subscription will end at the end of the monthly billing cycle.
For example: If you are billed on the 22nd of each month, and you cancel after your commitment period, your subscription will end on the 22nd of the following month, and you will not be billed any further.
