Purchase your eCard
As you can see on the eCard Collection pages, each eCard has a price specified above.
This is a once-off cost for usage of the chosen eCard and includes 15 free credits.
The cost relates to the complexity within the eCard design and animation and by pricing each eCard individually, it allows us to provide one-of-a-kind corporate eCards to suit a wide range of budgets.
Purchase your Credits
You need to purchase enough credits to cover the number of recipients in your list.
1 credit = 1 email and/or 1 unique eCard view.
When you upload your email list, you’ll be prompted to purchase enough credits to cover the number of recipients on your list. Buying and topping up your credits is easy to do and any unused credits are stored in your account for future use.
We are also able to provide credits in larger volumes. If you require more than 5000 credits, please contact us for our large volume credit prices.
What is considered a 'credit'?
A credit is considered an email send and/or a view of your eCard. When you send an email to a recipient a credit is deducted from your account. We log the number of views of your email and your eCard and compare it to the number of credits purchased in your campaign. If there is a significant discrepancy between the number of credits purchased and the number of email and/or eCard views then your account could be suspended and you will be required to purchase more credits for it to be reactivated. Please note this could mean users are not able to view the eCards you have sent so it is strongly recommended to purchase at least the number of credits as you have recipients in your list to ensure you have sufficient credits. If a significant discrepancy (as determined by eCards2Go.com) is found between the purchased number of credits and the number of email and/or eCard views then you will be obligated to purchase credits to cover this difference. We monitor this manually so do the right thing and purchase an adequate number of credits to cover the number of recipients you’ll be sending to and there will be no problem. We will only de-activate accounts where there is obvious intentional abuse or if you are ignoring our request to top up your credits. By using our service you agree to these terms.
What is considered a 'view'?
A 'view' is a view of the eCard itself. If one recipient opens your eCard multiple times on the same computer it will only log one view. If one recipient opens your eCard on multiple different computers, or forwards the eCard to others then the additional views will be counted. From our experience the extra views on different computers or from 'forwards' are generally balanced out by eCards that are not viewed by some recipients so as long as you purchase at least the number of credits as you have recipients in your list, then there will not be a problem. Remember your credits never expire so any unused credits will still be in your account for next time.
