NEW Changes to Price Packages

After almost a year of fine tuning and research, we have made some changes to Sendrecurring’s price packages to increase the level of service available to you, our awesome customers.

The former plan options:

Demo (FREE) – 100 emails per month

Basic ($4.99) – 500 emails per month

Pro ($14.99) – 5000 emails per month


The new plan options, and an overview:

Price Package Info Updated


Trial (FREE) – The Demo account has been redubbed Trial, and is now limited to 100 emails sent. It does not reset at the beginning of each month like the Demo did, which means when you reach 100 emails, you’ll need to upgrade in order to send more emails. Our main reason for this change was to curb spamming, which will benefit everyone and reduce the amount of disgruntled email receivers.

Basic 500 ($9.99) – Basic 500, previously Basic, includes 500 emails per month, as well as open rates, statistics, and customization.

Pro Unlimited ($19.99) – The Pro Unlimited is the best value of all the packages. Previously, users were limited to 5000 emails per month. Now, Pro Unlimited account holders have unlimited emails each month.


Recurring Text Message Reminders

You may have noticed that the new package options do not include recurring texts. We have temporarily suspended recurring texts for new users. If you are an existing user and your paid package included text messaging, you’ll still be able to send and edit those texts. But if you’re a new user or need to upgrade your account, texting will not be available.

Sendrecurring’s Official Launch of Paid Packages! Quotas will now be enforced.

As announced in the last post, we “soft-launched” Sendrecurring’s new paid package system a while back, and as of Monday (January 20, 2014), they are officially launched! There are a couple of announcements that go along with it.

First of all, SORRY ABOUT THE LITTLE CRASH WE HAD ON MONDAY! Somebody had to go and get all code-y and it messed stuff up temporarily. Who farted, right? No worries, we’ve fixed the problem and your emails should be sending like normal.

Second of all, here are the changes that accompany the Paid Package launch.

  • If you are using the free demo version of Sendrecurring but do not have an account, you will need to create one (totally free and easy). You will automatically be signed up for the free package. If you have an account already (regardless of package), great!
  • Limits will be enforced for emails, texts, and polls.
  • For the free package, if you send more than 100 emails per month, any number past 100 will not send. If you send to a recipient group larger than 100 people, it will not send to any of the recipients. For Basic and Pro account holders, the same applies, only your quotas will be higher according to your package.
  • For the free package, you will need to upgrade your account in order to send recurring texts (or increase email and poll allowance). View text limits here. To upgrade your account, login to your existing account and go to the Pricing page. It will show you the options you have for upgrading.
  • If you reach or exceed your quota of emails, you will receive a friendly email letting you know.

Third of all, we’ve added a feature that many of you have been asking for: optional start dates! Previously, the recurring emails were sent based on “now” or whenever you created the email. Now, you can schedule them to go out in advance, which will hopefully make life a lot easier for you. When you’re creating a new email or editing an existing email, it will look like this:

SR Optional Start Date

When you click on the text box, a calendar will drop down and you can select your desired send date.

We’re really excited that Sendrecurring is as well-liked as it seems to be this early on! The service is for you, the user, so if there is anything that needs improving or a feature you’d like to see added, drop us a line ( and we’ll do our best to make you happy! And as always, if you’re happy with the service, send us a testimonial (! We’d love to feature you (either by business name or personal name, or anonymously) on our coming-soon testimonial page.

Sendrecurring’s Soft Launch, Now Happening!

We’ve got two big announcements today! First, we’ve added recurring text messages to our list of awesome features (more on that later), and second, we have now entered the “soft launch” phase of our upgrade!

Over the course of Sendrecurring’s development, we’ve received some awesome feedback and suggestions, one of which was that Sendrecurring should be a paid service that offers levels of features. I know, you’re thinking “Who the heck would suggest making a free service into a paid service and ruin it for everyone?!”

“It looks great and seems to work well. Keep up the great work!! Make a few more tweaks and you can start charging for the service.  Fee should be modest for best results.”

“fyi, when this works exactly how I need it to, I’d gladly pay to use it.”

You got it, guys. So we fixed the bugs and added the features they talked about, and decided to come up with a few different packages to fit the users’ needs.

Well, here’s the great thing: It’s not going to ruin anything for anyone! As always, Sendrecurring is free to use for anyone. We’ve created some paid package options, which means we’ve put a limit on how many emails can be sent per month. Keep reading for our pricing information – it’s reasonable, we promise.

Since we’re fine-tuning some of Sendrecurring’s features and we want to give our users a decent amount of notice, we’ll be making the switch to the limited Free Package on December 1, 2013. No fees, no limits until then.

Starting December 1, 2013:

Account creation will be required for all users. This doesn’t mean everyone will have to start paying, it just means that everyone will need to create an account (free for everyone). Annoying, you say? We think spam is even more annoying, so by creating annoying accounts, we’re preventing even more annoying spammers from botting around and ruining people’s days.

Once you create your account, you’ll have free access to all of Sendrecurring’s Free Package features. Your account will only be upgraded if you say so.

We know that it can be tough to get used to changes, especially when you’ve been using the service for a while. The official launch of the paid packages will be in December, but we are now offering the paid service as an option before we start enforcing the limits. If you know you’d like to use the service through one of the paid packages, now’s the time to buy. Here’s why.

New Feature Texts

Upgraded accounts will have access to our newest feature, recurring texts! The free accounts do not (and will not) have any texting ability. Also if you sign up now, your transition on December 1 will be seamless (especially if you’re currently using over 100 emails).

We really hope you are as excited as we are about the new features! Go check them out and let us know what you think! Suggestions and feedback are the reasons we made these updates in the first place, so you should know that what you have to say really does matter!

Hop to! Set up your account if you haven’t already, and start exploring the new features!

Improvements to Sendrecurring, part 2!

Hey everyone, Tess here, Conrad’s super-awesome, super-pregnant wife. I’m going to be contributing some content to the website and blog so I wanted to introduce myself and say hello! I hope you all think Sendrecurring is as awesome as I do.

Conrad recently posted about some of Sendrecurring’s new and upcoming improvements, and I wanted to just throw a cherry on top of that sundae and tell you a little more about the amazing things we’re working on to improve the user’s experience.


We’re working overtime to create a great new design for the website as well as informative content that will help new and existing users. Here are some of the pages that will be coming soon:

  • Features and Benefits
  • Packages and Pricing
  • How it Works
  • Customer Stories
  • About
  • FAQ


Conrad mentioned in his last post that he updated the time entry box so that you can send an email at any time of the day, rather than just on the hour. He also added a Time Zone Detection feature that lets you alter the time zone you send your email in. To view or edit your Time Zone, go to your account management page, click on Settings, and edit your UTC in the drop-down menu. More info coming on this feature soon.

UPDATE: Here’s a helpful post on how to adjust your time zone and a guide to time zone numbers.


You’ll soon be able to send polls and surveys with your emails, and you can review the results in your email stats.

A little about the paid packages

One of our fears with creating paid account options was that some of our users would stop using Sendrecurring because they didn’t want to pay, so we made sure to keep a free option with slightly more limited features. Don’t worry – we won’t be making the switch right away, so continue using Sendrecurring! We’ll provide LOTS more information about the paid account options before we add them.

Customer Stories

We want to put together a page specifically for testimonials from happy users of Sendrecurring so that investigators can see what an awesome service it is! We can’t put this together without your help, though. If you’d like to submit a story or testimonial of how Sendrecurring has helped you, either personally or professionally, we’d love to share your story!

Just send us:

  • Your name (you can be as anonymous as you like)
  • Your business/website (we’ll share and direct some web traffic back to you)
  • Your story (tell us how Sendrecurring has helped you)


I’ve updated the FAQ page so its answers are more current and relevant to the new features. If you have any questions about how Sendrecurring works, don’t hesitate to send your questions to us!

Edit Links Included in Recurring Emails

I added a new feature to in the midst of fixing bugs:

Optional Links to Edit

Some of you may have noticed this new little checkbox by the recurring options when setting up a recurring email (or when editing one):

Checking the Edit Link box places a link in the footer of your recurring email:

Clicking this link takes you straight to the distribution editing page! Careful, whoever has access to this has full control of the scheduled recurring email, including cancelling it!

I use this in all my own scheduled recurring emails. The email you see here is actually a snippet of the one that I use to track development on SendRecurrring. I have others that are sent to groups of people and it is handy to have the link there as well so that many people can edit the contents of the email.

Of course…. If you don’t want people to edit the email do not check the box!
