About Account Billing

When you create your account, you will enter your credit card to sign up. Your credit card will be used to fund your CallTrackingMetrics available balance and to pay your monthly subscription fee.

Your account available balance provides the funds to pay for your numbers, minutes, monthly software fee, and any other premium services (such as transcriptions, premium caller ID, or encrypted call recording) that you choose to turn on.

When your balance falls below a specific amount, you can have us automatically recharge your balance using your credit card. For example, you can set your recharge amount to $50, and every time your account falls below $10 we will automatically recharge back up to $50. If your balance falls below zero, your account will be paused.  When your account is in this state, online tracking numbers will not dynamically swap ,calls will not be connected, and you will also be in jeopardy of losing your tracking numbers.

We will email all account admins with a receipt of the recharge when the account balance has fallen below your desired threshold. We will also  send an email when the balance cannot be recharged because of a credit card declining. It’s crucial that the administrator email addresses are correct and are email accounts that are regularly monitored.  Unfortunately, we do not have the ability to notify you by paper or phone call when your account is depleted.
The best practice is to have a primary credit card and a backup credit card on file. If the primary card ever runs into issues, the backup credit card is your final line of defense to protect your tracking numbers.
Estimate how much you expect to spend each month and set your recharge settings so that your balance is not falling below the threshold too often.

CallTrackingMetrics bills in US dollars and does not accept Paypal or Diners Club.
