If I cancel my subscription before the free trial ends is there any Charge?
No it's a Free Trial.
We use Paypal Subscriptions and this provides pretty good validation that helps keep fakers and spammers out, once you have passed that test we don't mind if you want to cancel after trialling our Smart Ads service
How does the ARN work?
The way the ARN works is different to Google Ads, we don't charge per click and make business bid for the top listings. In the ARN the longest supporters hold the best positioning and should receive more customer exposure as more members join and the ARN grows. Your Smart Ad ID contains a date stamp that moves earlier listings towards the top
