For current pricing and functionality:
The Monthly Subscription is a recurring monthly plan that allows sending unlimited emails. Cost is dependent on the number of active contacts in your account.
The Pay As You Go plan allows you to store unlimited contacts, sending emails uses email credits that need to be purchased upfront.

Upgrading to a paid account
When you upgrade a trial account to a paid account, data from the trial account carries forward to the paid account.
For the first three months you pay based on the Standard Plan but receive all functionality. You can use these three months to determine whether you want to stay on the Standard Plan or continue on the Pro Plan or Multi-account Plan. This three month period is provided because it's not always easy to know what features you'll end up using when you start a new account.
At any time you can switch between plans each month as your requirements change.
What are active contacts are how many active contacts do I have?
Active contacts are anyone you can potentially send emails to. Unsubscribed and invalid emails are excluded. Invalid emails are marked automatically when emails fail/bounce. You can view the total number of contacts you can send emails to on the Consent and contacts overview page.
Compare Monthly Subscription and Pay As You Go pricing
Follow the steps below to determine which billing option is better for your account.
Step 1: Understand the differences between the billing plans
Review the comparison chart on the top of this page between the two billing options to understand how they are different from each other.
Then you want to compare the annual costs of the two billing options.
Step 2: Determine the annual cost of the monthly plan
The monthly fee is based on the total number of active contacts across all accounts you have with us. You can find the current rates on our pricing page.
For example if you have 8,000 contacts that puts you in the 5K-10K bracket.
Then you should decide if you need functionality included in the Standard, Pro or Multi-account plan. For this example we'll select the Standard plan for $79/mo. This means the annual cost is $948.
Step 3: Determine the annual cost of the pay as you go plan
With the pay as you go plan it doesn't matter how many contacts you have. What you need to figure out instead is your estimated annual email volume. For example if you send 30,000 emails per month that's 360,000 emails per year.
You could purchase 500,000 credits for $2,500, which works out to $5/1,000 emails sent = $1,800/yr. This is more expensive than the monthly plan but keep in mind that the pay as you go plan gives you access to all functionality in the Pro plan plus the Multi-account plan.
In another example your monthly email volume is only 2,500 then you'd need 30,000 credits for the year. You'd need to purchase 50,000 credits for $900 (this is the lowest credit package). This way your annual cost is less than the monthly subscription even as some unused credits would expire each year.
Switching between billing plans
You can switch between plans any time but only once per year. Start a support chat with us to switch between plans.
Switching from Pay As You Go to a Monthly Subscription
Any unused email credits will be converted to a dollar balance that is applied to your account. This balance is used towards your recurring monthly subscription until the balance is used up, then you will be billed each month.
Switching from Monthly Subscription to Pay As You Go
Your recurring monthly billing will be stopped and the Pay As You Go plan will start with zero email credits. At this point you can purchase email credits as you need them.
Where can I view my email usage?
Email activity details are available from the Email Activity page.
You can view your email activity trend at a glance on the Reports page:
Billing for sub-accounts
Multiple sub-accounts can be set up under a primary account.
For the Monthly Subscription plan the total number of contacts across all sub-accounts is used to determine billing.
For the Pay As You Go plan sub-accounts share the same pool of email credits that the primary account purchases. Emails sent from any sub-account draw from the common pool of email credits.
In both cases the primary account is billed and cost allocation between sub-accounts needs to be done internally.
You can cancel any plan any time without a penalty, there are no contracts.
We do not provide refunds on any unused credits if you cancel.
