What is paid for in my account? What are Slots?

Our pricing is based on Slots and Add-ons.

As of now, Woodpecker offers three types of slots:

  • Email,

  • Mobile – which lets you connect your phone for Call and SMS tasks,

  • LinkedIn – which lets you connect your LinkedIn account.

Slots are placeholders for connecting your email/LinkedIn account or a mobile, which you will use for sending your campaigns.

To have an active Woodpecker account you’ll need to pay for at least one slot.

Every additional one will increase your bill. You can have multiple slots active on your account.

Please remember that you’ll be charged for those to which email accounts are connected as well as those which are empty.

There are no different plans and the basic fee for one email slot in Woodpecker is $39 per month, which includes:

  • daily limit set to 50 opening emails per day/slot,

  • basic campaigns with follow-ups,

  • unlimited team members.

Add-ons are additional features that you can buy from our Marketplace. If you decide to buy one, its price will be multiplied by the number of slots that you currently have and this amount will be added to your periodic price for Woodpecker.

Remember that you’re buying add-ons for all of your slots. If you're an Agency user, you can only buy add-ons from your main account and they will be applied to all the slots under your Agency one and its Clients.

Do I pay for email accounts or slots?

Your payments will be based on the number of slots and add-ons on your account. You can have as many active email accounts for Woodpecker as you have slots. If you want to use them for sending, remember to turn them on and connect them to slots.

Every slot equals one email address. You can have empty slots, however, you can not have more active email addresses than slots.

Woodpecker will only download incoming messages for active email addresses, which are currently connected to slots.

How is my billing calculated?

Your payment will be based on the number of Slots you have and the number of Add-ons which you bought from Marketplace.

The payment remains the same every billing cycle if you make no changes to your account (i.e. add or remove Slots or Add-ons).

Is this pre-paid or post-paid?

Every payment is prepaid, which means that if you add a new slot in the middle of your billing cycle you will pay a prorated amount for the time remaining in the current billing cycle for it.

If you delete add-ons or slots there will be a next payment reduction, since you’ve already pre-paid for them. In this situation, your next payment will be reduced to make up for the paid time you’ll not use them. The reduced amount will be proportional to the time left in your billing cycle without these slots or add-ons.

After cost equalization, you’ll have a constant, monthly price set up. Discounts can not proceed into refunds.

Where can I find the details of my next payment?

Just navigate to Settings → Billing → Summary, and click see details, right next to the date and estimated amount of your next payment. You will find all the features in your account with their pricing listed there.

See this article to learn what's what.

What payment methods do you accept?

Do I have to sign a contract?

You don't need to sign anything. You can pay as you go and cancel anytime.

Can I customize my plan throughout the subscription?

Yes, you can turn extra features on and off according to your current needs at any time using the Marketplace inside the app.

How does the annual plan work?

Signing up for the annual plan gives you over 2 months for free: you get a subscription for 12 months but pay only for 10. On the annual plan, you’ll be billed once a year.

Where will I find my invoice?

We issue invoices as legal documents confirming your payments. These will be available in your Woodpecker account ( Settings → Billing Payment history) within 7 days after payment and will be sent to your billing email (if you set it).

How do I remove Slots?

Before removing a slot you need to empty it, which means deactivating the email address which is currently connected to this slot. You can only delete empty slots. See how managing your email account works here»

If you remove a slot in the middle of your billing cycle, your next payment will be reduced by the prorated amount left until the next cycle. Woodpecker premium account comes with at least one active slot which can not be removed.

If you’re planning on taking a break from cold emailing, remember that you can pause your account » for the time you’re not planning to run your campaigns in order to keep all your data and access to your account. This option will lower your payment to $10 per month for the whole account.
