Interakt’s Conversation-based Pricing: Why, What, How
Interakt’s WhatsApp Business platform subscription plans are uniform across businesses across all verticals. In line to the standard WhatsApp Based conversation charges, Interakt offers one of the most transparent and affordable Convo Pricing Model for all their existing and new clients on the platform.
What is a Conversation?
According to WhatsApp, a conversation is considered as a set of all the messages exchanged between the business and the user, within a 24-hour period. When the first message is sent by the business, it is known as a business-initiated conversation (BIC). Similarly, when the first message is sent by the user, it is known as a user-initiated conversation(UIC). Let us understand with the help of an example:
Suppose that a business receives a message from the user on 15th August, 2:30PM. As soon as the business replies back to the user, it is counted as a user-initiated conversation.
As per the new convo-pricing model, all messages are free for this specific user until next 24 hours i.e. 16th August, 2:29 PM, and it will still be counted as one conversation.
How does Interakt’s Conversation-based pricing work?
Interakt follows a conversation-based pricing model where the complete billing is calculated on the basis of no. of conversations you had with your customers. With any of Interakt’s monthly subscription plans, you always get 1000 free conversations every month. And the no. of conversations you have above your free monthly limit of 1000 conversations, you will be charged as per the above rates.
In simple words, you get charged only when you send a message to your users from your end or reply to the user-initiated messages. Please note that the charges are applicable only when you have consumed your free quota of 1000 conversations.
How is the final billing calculated with Interakt’s Convo pricing model?
According to the new conversational billing model, Interakt’s final billing structure will be the sum of your subscription plan charges and usage charges basis the number of conversations.
Final Billing = Subscription Charges (Growth/Starter/Advanced) + Additional usage charges basis number of conversations (BIC / UIC)
At Interakt, there is no minimum commitment period. If you wish to deactivate your Interakt account, you may inform us prior to your renewal and your request will be processed within one business day. The great thing is, while calculating your usage bills, you don’t have to worry about paying 2 different charges. Your WhatsApp actuals are baked into the usage charges.
