Finding the right plan for your store can be difficult and time consuming. Here at Spently, we have done all of the work for you through the process of usage based billing. You might be wondering "What is usage based billing?" and do not worry, this article will answer all your questions.

We have broken this down to 3 sections to help you:

  1. What Is Usage Based Billing?
  2. What Spently Plans Are Available?
  3. How Do Spently Charges Appear On My Shopify Bill?

Usage Based Billing will automatically move you to the correct plan based on your order volume for a particular usage cycle. It will also reset you back on our lowest paid plan at the start of each usage cycle. This means you are never paying too much for your Spently plan.

What is a usage cycle? A usage cycle is a time period of 30 days. Due to this, your Spently usage cycle may be different from your Shopify billing cycle. Your Spently plan cycle begins once your free trial is complete on a paid plan.

All of our plans are based on your order volume and your order volume will reset back to 0 each cycle. *

All of our plans are designed to make sure you are getting the most out of Spently. Here is a breakdown on what is included on all of our usage plans:

Starter Plan: Up to, and including, 50 orders per cycle.

- $0.00 per cycle (That's right! Completely free to use!)

On the Starter plan, your usage cycle will start from when you first install the Spently app on your store.

We do all our billing through Shopify to streamline the process and all bills will depend on your plan type. You will be able to see what plan you are on in the Spently app. Simply click to "Usage & Plans" on your Spently dashboard. Here you will see what plan you are on, your current usage for the month and when your plan resets. If you are on a paid plan, you will be charged on the day your plan resets every month.

If you are on the Starter Plan, you will never be charged for using Spently.

If you are on the Essential Plan and above, you may see multiple charges appear on your bill. There will always be a base fee of $99.99 for "Spently Email Templates" which is for the Essential Plan. If you exceed a plan order limit for that cycle, you will be charge an additional usage charges listed as "Usage fees". Below is an example of a merchant on the Premium Plan with the usage fees highlighted in the red box.

Please note, as your billing starts from when you move on to a paid usage plan, your billing cycle may be different from Shopify. This means usage charges from the previous month may appear on your current Shopify bill.

If you have any questions about your billing, you can reach us via the in-app messages or at support@spentlyhq.com.
