DirectMail is charged based on the number of emails sent. There are currently two payment options available: Resource Package and Pay-As-You-Go.
To review exact fees, please log on to the product console. Please also note that Pay-As-You-Go product fees are estimates. Final usage fees depend on actual usage.
1. Packages are subscription-based and become available upon successful payment.
2. Service Period: 6 months. The term of validity is calculated separately for each package and not across multiple packages.
3. Deduction Methods: Mail usage will be deducted from the package quota during the term of validity. If you have multiple packages, messages will first be deducted from the package that expires first. When all packages are consumed, the deduction method will automatically convert to the Pay-As-You-Go payment model.
4. Users may not unsubscribe or receive a refund for unused resources once a package is activated or becomes expired.
