How do payments and credit work?

Contents

What is credit?

Credit is required to generate new speech. Each time you add text to generate speech, the duration of speech is deducted from your credits.

Credits are measured in time: i.e. you might have 2h 20 min and 15 seconds of credit in your account.

Why do we measure credit in units of time?

We believe in ethical AI and are pioneering a revenue share model with voice talent, and growing a marketplace of AI Replica voice actors.

We work with a growing pool of talented voice actors, who create AI character voices and license them on Replica's platform. As a user of the AI voice, you are licensing that voice based on the amount of speech it generates. Once the file is produced, you can use it commercially, royalty free.

Do I get free credit?

Yes, you get 30 mins of free credit when you sign up for a new account. This is so that you can try out Replica voices and see if they are a good fit for your creative projects.

Once you have used up your free credit, you'll need to purchase more to continue generating speech.

Replica may also offer ways to earn Free credit from time to time - keep an eye out for email updates 🙂.

Where can I see my credit?

You can view your credit on the bottom left of your navigation menu in your Replica Dashboard.

You can manage your credits in your account details page.

Get there by clicking credit, or clicking your name on the bottom left of the menu.

What payment plans does Replica offer?

We currently offer 4-hour blocks of credit for $24 each. This credit is a one-off purchase which can be used over the next 12 months. For details visit our Pricing page.

If you are looking for a larger amount of credit or would like to set up a 'pay as you go' plan, please contact us at contact@replicastudios.com with more information about your project and how we can help.

Is the $24 for 4hrs a monthly subscription?

No, this plan is not a monthly subscription.

When you purchase 4hrs of credit, it will not auto renew or reset at the end of the month.

The credit that you purchase can be used ad-hoc and on-demand, so you only pay for what you use to generate speech.

You can buy up to 16hrs of credit in a single purchase, and you can continue topping up your credit as you need to.

Who is the Enterprise pricing plan for?

Enterprise pricing is for large, high volume users of Replica's service. For example, if you are the owner of a highly popular app that needs to generate 1000hrs of audio on a monthly basis, you would be eligible for an enterprise account with Replica.

We would offer a discount since you are buying in bulk, and on a regular basis.

If your app idea is still new and doesn't require such a large volume of TTS, we recommend starting with our Personal credit plan, where you buy credit in 4hr chunks and pay for only what you use.
