We're happy you're reading this article — you're about to become a customer!
To get a plan, you should log in to your Porter account (account.portermetrics.com).
Then you will sign in with your Google (aka Gmail or G Suite) account.
Why we only let you sign in with Google?
To use Google Data Studio, you must use a Google account.
By default, we will enable the permissions to the connectors you buy to the email you use to create your Porter account.
I will explain this.
If I sign in with firstname.lastname@example.org and buy a Porter teams plan, I will be able to connect 5 accounts (let's say, 2 Facebook pages, 1 Instagram page, and 2 Facebook Ads accounts).
Such a license will be associated with that Gmail account so I should use that one on Google Data Studio.
It's common that some users buy a license with their personal account but access Google Data Studio with their work email, so try to make sure to sign in to both Porter and Google Data Studio with the same email.
If you must use separate emails for Porter and Google Data Studio, let us know by reaching out to support so we can associate both emails to the same Porter license.
Once logged in, go to Buy license:
Now, you should choose your preferred plan:
Then, choose a plan:
Then, you will see a popup to start the payment process with our payment gateway provider 2Checkout.
With it, you can choose a payment method.
Then, you can add your personal OR company information that will show up in your receipt.
Finally, add your card details and choose if you want to auto-renew your plan every month so your Porter account remains available.
Once you place your order, you will be re-directed to a confirmation page—and your Porter license will be ready.
You can go right away to Google Data Studio to keep creating your reports. You can also check your licenses to verify your new paid account.
You may wait a few seconds until you can reflect your new license in your Porter account. So don't worry if you go back and see that your plan or trial is expired.
