Billing and Transactions in Shape allows you to manage usage credits, payment methods and gather invoices!
Instead of locking you into a monthly usage plan that you may not use, we use a pay-as-you-go method with Usage Credits. You can easily add usage credits in the system by selecting “Add Usage Credits.” A popup will display that will ask for the amount you want to charge.
Usage credits can be used for activating and using several features in Shape such as purchasing phone numbers, sending SMS or MMS messages, and activating and using call monitoring. It is important to keep in mind that usage credits can only run off of a credit card and not ACH.
Navigate to the Billing & Transactions settings page via Settings > Billing & Transactions:
Billing and Transactions:
You can click the green “Add Usage Credits” at the top of the page to add credits to your account for calling, texting, and emailing!
Under “Payment Methods”, you will find the toggle to automatically recharge usage credits when the balance is low. You can also use the dropdowns here set the “Low Balance Amount” that will trigger the recharge as well as the amount that will be added!
You will receive a popup banner on your screen when the balance is low if you choose not to automatically recharge.
You can also update your payment information in the Billing & Transactions page. Scroll beneath the manage usage credits and you’ll see the option to add a payment option or edit an existing payment option.
Navigate below the payment methods and you have the option to view and download your most recent invoice. This is especially useful for billing and accounting departments. Additionally, download past invoices from the payment history table, located below invoices.
Your payment history will show a detailed itemized list of all the payments made on your account including the description for the charge as well as the amount charged, the payment method used, and whether the charge was successful or failed! The payment history can be downloaded to a CSV or PDF for your records.
At the bottom of billing and transactions, there is a list of usage fees, pricing chart, and acceptable use limits. This gives a snapshot of the cost to use certain features in Shape. A few features require you to toggle on the status in order for it to charge, such as ShapeIQ, and Call Monitoring.
