Information about pricing plans

Most Acumbamail features are included in pricing plans, often as monthly subscriptions. There are several types of available rates and payment methods to suit the specific needs of each business. None of the rates have a minimum-term commitment (except SMS monthly subscriptions),so you can change and cancel a plan when desired.

Types of pricing plans

Email pricing plans

In Acumbamail you have three different plans for sending emails with different functionalities and fixed extras. These three monthly or yearly recurrence plans have a base price that will increase depending on the emails you want to send monthly or the fixed number of subscribers or email addresses to which you want to send unlimited emails:

  • Basic Plan:With the basic plan you can already send email campaigns without the Acumbamail logo, have unlimited access to our drag &drop template editor with more than 850 fully customizable templates, to save 1 personalized row within the editor, complete campaign reports, dynamic forms(pop-up, exit intent ) and automations, among other functions. In addition, you can receive real-time support from the platform's chat, email and phone.
  • PRO Plan:This plan includes the ability to create more automations and save more rows in the template editor. It also includes some more advanced features to get the most out of your campaigns, such as automatic forwarding to the unans open, cleaning and optimizing lists, integrating your lists with Facebook Ads audiences, creating a white label or the possibility of publishing landing pages with a custom domain. Also, you can enjoy one email marketing consultancy per month.
  • Enterprise Plan : You will be able to access all the functionalities without limitations, hire a dedicated sending IP if you want, have priority support and have an assigned Account Manager to help you obtain the best results.

How to choose the right plan?

Once you have decided the features that best suit your specific needs, you only have to consider the number of emails you plan to send. Depending on this, you may want to choose your plan based on the number of submissions or the number of subscribers:

  • Number of shipments: To understand us, a shipment is equivalent to an email sent to a single email address. This modality is interesting when you are not going to make many shipments to the same list of subscribers or addresses, since it is more profitable. The number of subscribers that can be imported is unlimited. In addition, this option is more flexible since extra credits can be purchased when the plan is finished in order to continue sending.
  • Number of subscribers: This option is ideal if you plan to send a considerable number of emails to a fixed number of email addresses. So you can send an unlimited number of emails per month to a limited number of subscribers (receiving email addresses).
  • Prepaid credits: If you need to send emails on time or without a fixed recurrence, there is the option of contracting a fixed package of emails (prepaid credits). These packages will allow you to send a certain number of emails, for an unlimited period of time. They are more expensive than the recurring rates, but there are clients who are more profitable since a single payment is made and the credits accumulate in the account waiting to be used, without expiration. By default, if you contract a prepaid credit package, you will have access to the features included in the Basic plan .

To contract any of these plans, go to the My Account section in the side menu of Acumbamail and click on the option Contract rates / credits:

SMS payment rates

With Pro and Enterprise email plans, you have a fixed number of SMS included per month that you can use. However, if you need plan specific SMS sending package, you have two options:

  • Prepaid SMS package: Contract the SMS you need in a single payment, they will be available in your account at all times without expiration.
  • Monthly fee: They come out 10% cheaper than a package; the SMS you do not use accumulate month by month and you can cancel whenever you want, but keep in mind that you will lose the accumulated SMS at the time you cancel the plan. Our monthly rates have a minimum stay of four months.

Available payment methods

At Acumbamail he do not store your bank information, account numbers, or card numbers . All information related to your means of payment is stored in the payment processors, Stripe for bank cards and GoCardless for direct debits, through a secure process in which your information does not even pass through our servers. You can choose between several available payment methods:

  • Credit/Debit Card: Visa, Mastercard, Maestro and American Express cards can be used. You can use it to hire rates of any kind. It's best that if you have a recurring plan, don't use a virtual card, as the following charges will be paralyzed and you'll have to enter it manually each month, locking your account while you're doing the process.
  • Direct debit: Direct debit is another payment method allowed. This service is offered to customers that we consider reliable, if at any time it does not appear you can contact our support and provide your data to activate it. It can also be used at any of the available rates.
  • Bank transfer: We only offer this form of payment if annual fees or large rates of email or SMS credits are contracted. The reason is that the management of this type of payment method is manual and involves the work of our support staff, so we try to minimize it. In case you want to pay a plan yearly by transfer, please contact our support.

At the moment, we do not contemplate payment for PayPal.

Renewal of monthly rates

All monthly rates will be renewed after 30 calendar days, counting from the day the price was plan. If you change plan your renewal date will be 30 days from the day you make the change. Changing your plan is effective the moment you request it. 

If for some reason your payment method does not allow you to make charges, your account will be automatically blocked and you will be notified by email to enter a new payment method. Please note that if your account is blocked your automations will be paused and transactional submissions will not be sent, so try, as far as possible, to have several payment methods available to avoid blockages.

Purchase more credits when your plan has run out and you need more

There is a possibility that, in certain months, you will not have enough shipments with the plan you have hired and you need to send some more. There are two options you can contemplate: a change of plan or use extra shipments. The price of the shipments extra depends on the plan you have contracted, you can consult them in the following table:

Contracted rate Extra credit price (by email)
20,000 shipments 0,00161 €/email
40,000 shipments 0,0015 €/email
100,000 shipments 0,00128 €/email
300,000 shipments 0,00079 €/email
700,000 shipments 0,00071 €/email
1,000,000 shipments 0,00053 €/email

There are three possibilities in which you can use credits extra:

  • In the last step of creating campaign,if you press the send campaign button and have no credits you will be informed how much it will cost you to send that campaign.
  • If you schedule a campaign to be sent on a date and, at that time, you do not have credits, you will be charged the credits extra automatically and, if your payment method does not give any problem, the campaign will be sent.
  • If you are sending transactional shipments by SMTP server and you exceed your shipments, you will be charged credits extra.

In the case of sending campaigns (both manual and scheduled) you will be charged a minimum of € 1 per campaign sent. Credits extra are useful if the next scale of rates means you spend more money, otherwise you should make a change of plan.
