You can install apps from GitHub Marketplace to use in your personal account.

If you choose a paid plan, you'll pay for your app subscription on your personal account's current billing date using your existing payment method.

If you choose a paid plan with a free trial, you can cancel at any time during your trial period without being charged, but you will automatically lose access to the app. Your paid subscription will start at the end of the 14-day trial.
