The Billing settings provides the ability to:

  • Review your current GetSwift account balance
  • Add money to your GetSwift account using a credit card
  • Set up your GetSwift account to automatically add money when your balance runs low
  • Obtain a history of payments into your GetSwift account

Your current account balance is shown in the first line on the page. Our standard pricing is $0.29 USD per task and your account balance will be drawn down with each task entered into the GetSwift system. There is also a charge for sending SMS alerts to your customer that varies by country.  Please contact us to inquire about volume-discounted pricing or about SMS pricing by country.

For a list the actual tasks you were charged for, please download the “Payments and Transactions” report, which you can find more about here.

If you do not have enough money in your account for a task, then you may see a warning (shown on the right)  when you try to add a new task. Any tasks posted using the API will also be rejected.
