  • The free trial of Standard or Essentials lasts for 1 month. Mailchimp plans are billed monthly on the same day of the month. For example, if you start your trial on August 29, your trial would end on September 29.

  • Yes! You can upgrade or downgrade at any time during your trial. If you upgrade to Premium, you’ll just pay the difference in price between the two plans for the remaining days of your free trial. Downgrades to your monthly plan go into effect at the end of the monthly billing period. You won't receive a refund for previously billed charges, but you’ll retain access to those features until the end of the billing period.

  • If you cancel your subscription during the free trial, you won't be charged for any services. You can pause your subscription or delete your Mailchimp account at any time using the Settings tab in Account & Billing.

  • Mailchimp will send you reminders with upcoming billing estimates before your trial ends. When the free trial ends, you’ll be charged the then-current monthly fee for the plan you selected.

  • SMS marketing is available to Mailchimp users in the United States and United Kingdom with a paid marketing plan. After you agree to the terms, submit an SMS Marketing application, and get approved, you can purchase SMS credits from the SMS overview page, the SMS settings page, the SMS editor, or through an email link sent to the primary email address associated with your Mailchimp account.

  • Credits are purchased in blocks as an add-on to a paid monthly marketing plan. Credit blocks are automatically re-purchased each month on the account billing date. Unused credits will expire each month and do not roll over. You can add credits as your subscribed SMS audience grows or your sending frequency increases. You can also make a one-time purchase in the middle of a billing cycle if you run out of credits early and want to refill them before your credits renew.

  • Yes. If you send emails infrequently and prefer to pay as you go, you can buy email credits as an alternative to a monthly plan.

  • You can switch to a new plan at any time by going to the Billing page in your account. Select the plan you’d like to switch to and immediately start using new features.

  • We accept all major credit cards, PayPal, and (in select countries) direct debit. We also support transactions in a range of currencies.

  • After your Free Trial, if you hit your contact or sending limit, Mailchimp will automatically bill you for your overages. As long as you pay for your overages on time, we will not stop your campaigns or pause your account. In addition, if your audience size grows to (or email sends reach) the point where it would be more cost effective for you to be in a different contact tier during your Free Trial, Mailchimp may upgrade your contact tier so you are in a more economical tier when billing begins.

  • We do indeed. If you have more than 200,000 contacts, we have a high-volume plan that can meet your needs.
