Auto SSL does not provide any kind of support. Most of the Paid SSL Certificate provides customer support including sales, technical and installation.
It doesn't provide Organisation Validation (OV) and Extended Validation (EV). Paid SSL do provide Organisation Validation (OV) and Extended Validation (EV).
