How do message credits work?

Josh Romphf Updated by Josh Romphf

Every Kavyar member receives a monthly quota of message credits, which can be used to start conversations with out-of-network members.

  • Free / no credits needed:
    • All in-network messages (with collaborators or mutual follows)
    • Messages on existing conversations (regardless of who started it)
    • Messages to publishers, brands, agencies, businesses (see limited direct messages)
    • Messages to Kavyar staff
  • 1 credit required:
    • Sending first message to out-of-network member

What are in-network and out-of-network messages?

  • In-network messages are those sent between you and someone you're connected to. There are two types of in-network connections:
    • Collaborators - members credited on the same work as you
    • Mutual follows - members that you follow that also follow you back
When sending a message as a Publication, Business, Brand or Agency you must use a credit if you are starting a new conversation. In network messages are not available to business accounts.
  • Out-of-network messages are those sent between you and anyone you are not connected to via collaboration or mutual following. Starting a conversation with someone out-of-network requires using a message credit.
Only brands and agencies with PREMIUM Kavyar business accounts can message publication editors directly. 1 credit will be used when sending the first message to an out-of-network publication editor.

Creative members wishing to contact an editor can send a message to the publisher account.
