The Subscriptions section in ZeptoMail gives you all the information related to the credits purchased. In this section, the total number of credits, number of emails left, number of credits expiring along with the earliest expiry date will be displayed in the top bar. Subscription has two sections—Subscription details and Transaction details. You even have the facility to purchase extra credits and even auto top-up once your account has been verified.
In ZeptoMail you can purchase credits based on your email sending volumes. List of things to know about before purchasing credits:
- A single ZeptoMail credit allows you to send 10,000 emails.
- Every credit is valid for 6 months from the date of purchase.
ZeptoMail counts the email to each recipient in your email header as a separate email. That means, if your email has 1 recipient in 'to' field, 1 recipient in 'cc' field, and 1 recipient in 'bcc' field; then the total count of emails sent is 3.
