Contact Finder Plugin - How To Buy Search Credits
The Contact Finder uses 'credits' as payment for each search that is run. The extension is free to activate and comes with a 14-day trial. Running searches during the trial period is possible, and search credits are able to be purchased. To continue using Contact Finder after your trial period ends, a monthly subscription is available.
You are able to purchase extra credits at any time during your monthly subscription, so you are never limited to how many searches you want to run, or when you want to run them.
To buy credits for Contact Finder, the process is very much the same as purchase Campaign credits. From the QuoteCloud Dashboard, click on Campaigns in the left-hand menu.
From within the Campaigns Dashboard, click Credits on the top right of the screen.
To view your credit history/balance, select the Contact Finder Credits tab.
The purchase new credits, simply click the orange Buy New Credits button.
You are given the option to buy credits for:
- Sending Campaigns: These are required when sending emails through the in-built campaigns functionalist
- Finding Contacts: These are required to run contact searches through the Contact Finder plugin
For Contact Finder credits, select Finding Contacts. The credit package price will show for 1000 Google API queries. The amount of credits required for each search may vary depending on the criteria extensivity, so 1000 credits may not last the same number of searches for you each time. Credits do not expire, so if you happen to purchase too many, there is no risk of not being able to use them in the future.
Simply enter the number of credit packages you would like to buy. For example, 2 packages = 2000 credits.
Your new credit balance will display in the Credits Dashboard, as per below.
