    This is a great initiative, but for ease of use, annual payment, not just monthly payment, should be an option.

      Thanks for taking the time and sharing your feedback. I’ll share this idea with the rest of the Professional Email team. For now, we encourage you to try monthly payments and enjoy 3 months of free Professional Email with a new domain.
