 Home /Knowledgebase / Billing Methods

Sending with SEMSblast has been designed to fit around your budget no matter what your list size.

Whenever you send an email to subscribers, wether it's by adding a campaign, or adding an auto-responder you will need either Email Credits (If you are Pay as you go) or a subscription plan (Unlimited Sending or Free Forever) before your emails will be sent.

If you don't have a billing plan, or don't have enough credits to cover a campaign your emails won't be sent.


Billing Methods

There are three ways to use SEMSblast ...

 

 

Pay as you go

  • Every new user who joins SEMSblast becomes a Pay as you go subscriber. You will be given 10 free credits with which to test the system.
