Why can’t I change my email address?

Your email address serves as your unique credentials in the system. This is what ties you to the account. If you are the account owner and need to change your email address, the best way to do that is by cancelling your subscription and then reassigning your new TID (email address) as the account owner. Mark your calendar for when your subscription ends and is cancelled, so you can re-purchase a new subscription with your correct email address/TID.

What is the difference between Billing Address and Shipping Address?

The Billing Address is the physical address on file with your credit card provider. The Shipping address designates the location where the product is used. Taxes are calculated for your Shipping Address.

Trimble Accounts

Do I need a Trimble ID to purchase?

Yes. Setting up your Trimble ID is easy and necessary to maintain your unique credentials in the system. You can setup your Trimble ID when signing in. If you are assigning a license to a team member who does not have a Trimble ID, the system will automatically create one for them, and they will be sent an email from Trimble with the account confirmation instructions. This link is only good for 72 hours, so if you have missed that window and know you created a Trimble ID, you can use this link to get started and confirm your Trimble account set up (first time only).

The Trimble Account activation link in my email has expired. How can I activate my account?

See above for the long version. This is the link that can be used.

Co-terming and Proration

What are co-terming & proration?

Co-terming is a technique in which all of the individual subscriptions of an account are configured to have the same term or renewal date. Proration is a cost adjustment technique that ensures that the purchaser only pays for the remainder of a co-termed new subscription. For example, suppose you previously bought a monthly term product that is due for renewal on 05-01-2019. The current date is 05-13-2019 and you are buying a new monthly subscription product on the same account. The co-termed new product will also renew on 05-13-2020. You will only be charged a prorated amount for only the remainder of the new subscription item's term ( i.e., from 05-01-2018 to 05-13-2018) and you can start using the new product today. On 05-13-2018, you will be charged the regular recurring amount for all your subscriptions, including this new purchased item.

Sales Tax Information

How is sales tax calculated?

If an item or service is subject to local sales tax , the tax amount is generally calculated on the total selling price of each individual item.
