What is a credit and how to spend it?

With every Snov.io plan, you receive a certain amount of credits and unique recipients you can use in a month. Credit is a payment unit that you spend on finding and verifying emails. Unique recipient is a payment unit that you spend on email sending. Credits and unique recipients issued in accordance with your plan are valid for 30 days since the date of purchase. 

The amount you are charged depends on the tool you use: 

You can check a report for all your spent credits in the transactions tab
