c) If you are using Octoparse with the free account, please close the software and restart it again to use the Professional trial. You can check your trial expiration date in your account.

If you would like to subscribe the premium plans during the trial period, you can go to your account page and upgrade your plan under the "Plan & Subscription" tab. For more details, please read this article.
