Paid services

  1. Sign up is free. After sign up, users may build and manage Chatbot for free. The user who built the Chatbot is the Project Owner and may add other users as admin, or invite them to use the Chatbot.
  2. For each Chatbot, you enjoy free services until you have over 300 cumulative actively engaged users. Once you exceed 300 persons, our service is no longer available for free, and an e-bill from the Platform will be sent to the email address associated with the Project Owner’s profile. Payments shall be made within 14 days of the receipt of the e-bill.
  3. Pricing:
    1. Definitions:
      1. Actively engaged: The customer has clicked buttons in the Chatbot, or has messaged the Chatbot within the past 180 days. If the customer has not actively engaged with the Chatbot for over 180 days, he/she will be considered inactive, and will not be included when assessing the pricing level.
      2. Cumulative actively engaged user: The accumulated number of customers that has actively engaged with the Chatbot over the past 180 days.
    2. Levels of pricing:
      If the number of cumulative actively engaged users exceeds the maximum for the current level, then the next pricing level shall apply.

Whereas if you have 3,001 cumulative actively engaged users, your subscription fee for the current period would be US$100.

    3. Payment details:
      1. Unless otherwise agreed with us, an e-bill from the Platform will be sent to the email address associated with the Project Owner’s profile on the first day of each month. The e-bill includes the subscription fee from the previous month and will be paid automatically if the Project Owner saved his/her credit card information to the Platform and agreed to pay by automatic payments. By setting up automatic payments, the Project Owner gives the Platform permission to charge his/her credit card on a monthly basis for services rendered. The subscription fee will apply from the time the Chatbot’s cumulative actively engaged users exceed the free quota until the deletion of the Chatbot. When the last bill has been fully paid, we will cancel the automatic payment the Project Owner has with the Platform.
      2. When assessing the pricing level for each month, the cumulative actively engaged users for each Chatbot is calculated based on the day with the highest accumulated number of actively engaged customers. (For instance, on March 12th, the accumulated number of actively engaged customers for your Chatbot is 3,180, the highest record for the month of March, thus your subscription fee for the month would be US$100. If in the following month, the day with the highest accumulated number of actively engaged customers occurred on April 1st, and the numbers dropped to 2,980, then your subscription fee for April would be US$67.
      3. Project Owner may cancel the linked payment method at any time and set up a new payment method prior to the payment of the next bill.
      4. Upon request, we may issue uniform invoices to legal persons.
      5. The Platform’s billing cycle is based on UTC+0
    4. Payment:
      1. Payments shall be made by the Project Owner within 14 days of the receipt of the e-bill. If the bill is overdue, the Chatbot will no longer reply to messages. Nevertheless, during this period of time, the Project Owner and other admins of the Chatbot may manually reply to customer messages via services other than the Chatbot. Your Chatbot will become available within one hour following the payment of the overdue bill.
      2. If the bill is overdue, your Chatbot will be unlinked from the Messaging Platform Account managed by the Project Owner and other admins. Nevertheless, the Project Owner is still obligated to pay the amount owed. If, later on, the Project Owner or other users plan to build another Chatbot that links to the same Messaging Platform Account, the link will also only become effective within one hour following the payment of the overdue bill.
      3. Payments shall only be made with the user’s own credit card or other payment instruments. If the user uses the credit card or other payment instruments (for instance, micropayment account) of another person ("Actual Payer"), it is deemed that he/she has legally obtained permission, and informed the Actual Payer of the payments. The user or Actual Payer may inquire into account information related to the payment, cancel the payment, or make updates to reflect changes to the Actual Payer’s personal information.
