Message counting

All Pro plan tiers are depending on the message limit available per each tier.
You can reference how all text messages and elements, such as cards and text-to-speech audio files are counted as described in this guide. Messages are counted in both directions, from user and from bot. Messages containing cards and audio files are counted as several messages.

How does the message counting work?

When a user types a message or a bot sends one, this is an exchange that will reduce your total by one. Whether you’ve added cards, galleries, RSS feeds, etc. into the interaction, it is still only considered to be one message exchanged.

Note, however, that if the chatbot's message is broken into several bubbles or has a delayed response, a new text counts as a new message. The same is true for the TTS feature: messages will be counted for every single bubble in the bot message.

The cost of the Pro Plan varies according to the number of messages a chatbot sends and receives every month. The tariff starts at $30 a month for 10,000 messages exchanged and then rises as follows: $75 a month for 25k; $149 for 50k; $199 for 75k; $249 for 100k; $449 for 250k; $749 for 500k and $999 for 1M.
