With Prepaid plans, you pay for the plans first before the credits are added to your account. With Postpaid plans, you can send SMS even without paying. You will pay the recurring amount every 10th of the following month based on your subscription. There is a lock-up period of 6 months.
What is the difference between Individual and Business postpaid plans?
The major different is the security deposit. If you will get a Business postpaid plan, you need a security deposit to start. This security deposit will not be touched and will serve as your credit limit in sending messages.

If you want to send more messages beyond your allotted credits, you need to call us for a reload. Pricing for the reload is at PHP 1 per credit. To avoid this, you should choose the right plan that will suit your monthly outbound volume.
