Newsletter and Email Credits

Having a hard time figuring this out? Look no further!

What are newsletter credits?

Every time you make a new newsletter, it consumes one newsletter credit.

Free users get a certain amount of credits when they sign up, and paying users receive UNLIMITED newsletters.

If you're on the Free plan and you run out of newsletter credits you can upgrade to any Pro subscription for UNLIMITED newsletter credits.

What are email credits?

When you send emails through Smore's share with email tool, you consume email credits. Each recipient costs you one credit. So, for example, if you send an email to 100 people, 100 credits will be consumed.

Free users currently get 200 email credits every month. Paying users receive UNLIMITED email credits per month, however Pro monthly plans are limited by the amount of contacts they have in their Mailing List. The amount of contacts depends on their plan. If go over the contact limit list size, you won't be able to send your newsletter.

If you are on the Educator plan, you have up to 5,000 email credit sends per month. This plan does not limit the amount of contacts in your Mailing List. If you reach the 5,000 email credit sends allotted in a month, you will not be able to send additional newsletters. However, there is an option to upgrade your plan to Educator XL.

There are two reasons for this limit:

  1. Emails cost money to send. We need to charge to cover those costs.
  2. Spammers sometimes take advantage of services like Smore to send a lot of unsolicited emails.
