Frequent questions and their answers

Do I need a credit card to sign up?

Yes. We keep a card on file for all of our startup program companies. We do this for overages and will also begin charging this card at our normal rate after your initial 12-month deal expires.

Can I change plans after I start?

Yes. After you apply and are accepted into the startup program, you can upgrade or downgrade your plan at any time to suit your business needs. However, changing plans does not extend your plan length.

I’m not sure if I qualify for the startup program – what should I do?

Check out the requirements above on this page and apply if you meet them. Our team will review your application and respond quickly to your inquiry. We reserve the right to not accept any company for any reason.

Which plan makes sense for my business?

That depends. If you think your team will need support and/or you have a lot of users (over 20k) then we’d recommend the Startup +Plus plan. If you have less than 12k users and think your team can get up and running without our help, we’d recommend our free basic plan.

I didn’t get accepted into the startup program. Now what?

That’s okay! You can still use our product! Let us know you’re still interested and our sales team will help get you set up on a plan that makes sense for you.

How often are applications reviewed?

Applications are reviewed weekly. All applicants will be contacted upon approval only. 

What type of support do I have access to?

If you’re on our Basic Startup Plan, then your support is limited, although community support is available. 

If you’re on our Startup +Plus plan you have access to support. Please email with as much detail as possible about your issue.  

What are overages? How and when will I be charged for them?

Overages are calculated based on the number of customer profiles you have in your account. These overages are only charged when the number of profiles you have in your account exceeds your plans allotted amount (12K for Basic, 100K for Plus). If overages occur, we will charge the card we have on file. 

The overage fee for Startup Basic is $0.008 per profile, and it’s $0.004 per profile on Startup Plus.

I’m looking for a higher level of support – what should I do?

Please email We can discuss which paid option gets you the support you need.

We are a bootstrapped company who has not received financial backing from one of your partners. Can we apply to the startup program?

We offer a special startup program for bootstrapped companies and are currently accepting a limited amount of companies to this program. You can learn more and apply here.
