Can I use codeREADr for one month or month-to-month?
Yes. After upgrading to a paid plan, you can downgrade at any time. It is your responsibility to go to your Plans page on codeREADr.com to downgrade before the beginning of the next monthly billing cycle. You can upgrade again at any time.
I just upgraded to paid plan. Will I be charged for devices used before I upgraded?
No. Your billable device count is re-set to zero devices once you upgrade.
When does my monthly billing period begin?
It begins the day you upgrade from a Free Plan to a Paid Plan.
What does ‘overage’ mean?
Overage refers to devices used that exceed the number included in your paid Plan. This was set up so you don’t have to worry about exceeding the number of devices included in your paid Plan. Instead of overestimating, you can underestimate and potentially save money.
For example, let’s say you think you’ll use between 5 to 10 devices a month. Selecting the 5-Device Plan includes 5 devices. If you sign-in with 10 devices during a given billing period, those extra 5 devices will be billed at the end of that month’s billing period at the 5-Device rate, without any penalty fees. In that way you don’t have to sign up for a higher Device Plan to cover usage greater than 5 devices.
Can I use different devices each month and not be charged for devices used in previous months?
Yes. Your billable device count is re-set to zero devices at the beginning of each monthly billing cycle. Only if that device is used to sign in again during the next cycle(s) will it be counted as billable again.
Can I delete a device from my account?
No, but as noted above it doesn’t matter because your billable device count is re-set to zero devices at the beginning of each monthly billing cycle. However, if that device is used to sign in again during the next cycle it will be counted as billable again.
Does the SD PRO scan engine cost more?
Yes. SD PRO uses your device’s camera just as our standard scan engine does. While our standard scan engine is good, SD PRO is much faster and scans many more barcode types. The price for SD PRO is $5.00 per device per month and is in addition to your monthly Device Plan pricing. You can add or remove SD PRO when upgrading or changing your paid plan.
Do you have special plans available?
Yes. We can create special plans. Contact email@example.com with your specific use case.
Can I pay by wire or check?
Yes. We can invoice monthly for accounts with a 10-Device Plan or more per month. You must specify an email address to send the invoice to. We do not print and mail invoices.
Can I pay in advance?
Yes. We can issue an invoice for annual use. The minimum pre-payment amount is $250 USD. This fee can be paid by credit card, wire or check.
Can I control who uses codeREADr?
Yes. You create and distribute your own app credentials (usernames and passwords) to companies/people you know or do business with. You can delete those credentials at any time or remove them from accessing one or more – or even all services. If all services are removed they will not be able to sign in to the app and therefore their device sign-ins won’t count as billable.
Can I control how many devices are used?
Yes. When you create you app user credentials you can limit the number of devices that username can use. You can also limit app users to specific Services and elect to have those Services automatically expire.
I need to test with lots of devices. Are they billable?
They are billable if you use your paid account. If you want to test for free, simply sign up for another account with the Free Plan.
What are the limits of the Free Plan?
The Free Plan is limited to 50 scans per month and you cannot use our API (only developers need API access). You also cannot use the Auto Sync feature or the CSV Download Link feature with the Free Plan.
Why is a device billable if my app user signs into the device but doesn’t scan?
Many clients use the app without posting scans to our server. You can download the app to as many devices as needed and they won’t be billed unless they sign into the app with the app user credentials you issued
What happens if my authorised app users sign into the app on different devices during a monthly billing period – but not at the same time? Are all those devices billable?
Yes. The billing system counts all unique devices signed into during your monthly billing period. The total billable count is reset to zero at the beginning of each monthly billing period. Therefore, those devices will only be counted during the billing period(s) they sign into the app.
Can I preview my charges, download invoices and see a billing history?
Yes. It’s available on your Account page under the Billing tab.
What are API calls and how do they affect me?
API Calls should not concern you unless you plan to have your developers integrate your third-party applications with the codeREADr platform.
Developers: The use of our API is only available for accounts with paid plan. An API call is only counted when the codeREADr server receives a call from a third party’s server. We strongly encourage developers to be efficient in the use of our APIs.
API calls specifically do not include any scans, searches, history, etc. requests from the codeREADr app to either the codeREADr server or from the app to a third party server. Also, the use of Postback URL or Direct Scan to URL do not use API calls.
