How does it work?
MessageBird works on a prepaid balance basis. This means that the balance you top up will be used to pay for any messages sent, numbers purchased, voice calls made and more. In short, it gives you full access to our MessageBird platform.
To get started, you will need to top-up at least a minimum balance of EUR 15, USD 15 or equivalent in your chosen currency.
How do I top up?
To top up your balance, follow these steps:
At the upper-right corner of your Dashboard, next to your workspace name, you will see a button to ‘Top up’ (if you have bought balance previously) or 'Upgrade' (if you are on test credits. Otherwise, you can also make your way here.
You will then be redirected to the ‘Purchase credit’ page. Here, specify how much balance you would like to purchase.
Note: Depending on your location, specific VAT rules will apply and you may need to pay VAT.
If you have a valid VAT number, be sure to add it your account within your general settings.
- Click on ‘Checkout’ to pay.
- You will be re-directed to the Purchase Overview page.
a. Be sure to include your correct company details. These should match your company details configured in your Account Settings along with the details that your bank has on file.
