  1. Can I create an unlimited number of tickets with a single-agent license?

Each agent license can only cater to a maximum of 200 tickets/month. However, this limit multiplies as the number of agents' licenses increases. For example, if you have signed up for 3 agent licenses, then your agents can collectively create up to 600 tickets per month.

There is a capacity of 200 tickets/agent/month allocated against every agent. If you exceed that capacity, you will charged for the additional usage.

For example, if you have signed up for 3 agents and the number of monthly tickets exceeds 600 tickets for the month, you will charged for an extra agent for each pack of 200 additional tickets. For example, in the case of 850 tickets and 3 agents, you will charged for 5 agents for the month.

For the annual plan, for any additional utilization on top of yearly licenses purchased, we charge you based on actuals without discounts as overages for that particular month.

For example, You purchased 10 Licenses of Professional plan for 1 year. You will be charged for 10 agents with Annual discounts at the beginning of the Contract. Within that year, in any given month you utilized more than 10 agents licensed (say 12), then you will be charged for 2 additional seats as overage without a discount for that month.

With ClearFeed, you need to pre-purchase the number of agent licenses you plan to use in any given month. For the first month, we will bill you based on the number of agents at the start of the month.

For every month of usage, we determine the number of additional ClearFeed Agents licenses you have used beyond the capacity already purchased and charge the monthly overage fees as per the plan that you are on. Moreover, for subsequent months; you will be billed for a month assuming your license usage will remain the same as the previous month. If the actual usage exceeds or falls short of the projected usage, the charges will be adjusted in the next billing cycle based on the difference in usage.

If you remove an agent, it will not affect the current billing cycle. However, in the next billing cycle, we will consider the starting agent licenses by excluding the removed agents.

  1. For an Annual Plan, will there be adjustments provided if the total usage is less than the total agent licenses purchased for the year?

The minimal service fee applicable will be based on the number of agent licenses purchased for the year. If you use less than that, there will be no adjustments provided in the next month based on the same.
