Billing Settings & Management

 
 

Account Balance

Your current account balance is shown in the first line on the Billing Page

 
 

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.  

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.
