When you upgrade your subscription (from a monthly to a yearly subscription), you will be charged for the yearly subscription minus what you have already paid for your monthly subscription (pro rata calculus).
When you downgrade your subscription (from a yearly to a monthly subscription), your account will be balanced with the time you didn't use with your yearly subscription.
For example: you subscribe for a yearly subscription in January (so you pay €108) but you change it to a monthly subscription at the end of May (don't forget that the price is different for a yearly (€9/month) and a monthly (€10.5/month) subscription). You used 5 months of your yearly subscription, which means you used €45 (5*€9) out of €108. So your account will be credited with €63 (108-45). This amount represents 6 months (6*€10.5) in a monthly subscription, which means you won't pay anything during 6 months.
