How Klaviyo Bills Customers for Emails

Last updated at:


Klaviyo's billing structure for email is based on two criteria:

  1. The number of contacts in your account
  2. The number of emails you send during the month

Review Your Billing Plan

To review your billing plan, click the account dropdown in the upper right-hand corner of your screen. Select Account.


You will arrive at the Account Overview page, which displays information about your current plan, a summary of your usage, and any plan limits.


Upgrading Your Plan

If you need to send to more contacts or want to view other available plans, click Upgrade Plan.

Alternatively, you can select the Billing dropdown and choose Email.

Email and SMS are billed separately in Klaviyo. If you want to update your SMS plan, select SMS Plans instead. Head to our article on How Klaviyo Bills Customers for SMS for more information.

On the Email Plans page, you will be able to select a plan to accommodate for the amount of profiles in your account. When you find the plan that best suits your needs, select Change. Your account will update accordingly. Note that the prices outlined in our plans section do not include sales tax.


Downgrading Your Plan

If you decide to downgrade your plan, this will not be immediate, but will instead take effect for your next billing cycle. You will finish out your current month's email plan before your plan changes. Thus, we do not refund downgrades, as stated in our Terms of Service

Including Your Tax ID on Invoices

If you would like your tax ID included on invoices, you can update this manually. Navigate to your Billing Preferences page and add this under Tax ID (Optional). All future invoices will then include this information. For more information, head to How to Find and Update Your Tax ID in Klaviyo.

Email Credit Card Details

Klaviyo does not support multiple credit cards in a single account. If you also use Klaviyo for SMS and either add to your balance or set automatic refills with a different card than the one in your account, this will charge the credit card on file. If your payment ever fails, the account owner will be alerted via email.

For details on how to change the credit card on file, check out our article on how to update your credit card information. To see invoices and other details regarding your recent charges, select Billing > Payment History.
