How do message credits work?
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
- 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
- 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.
How many message credits do I get?
Members get a monthly quota of message credits based on their account level:
- Basic - 3 credits / month
- PRO - 10 credits / month
- ELITE - 20 credits / month
