Initially, each registered user can export documents of total size equivalent to the number of the allowed export credits specified in the choosen plan. However, thanks to our referral program our registered users can expand the allowance for up to 1000 credits.

Export credit is a unit we use to measure the size of exported documents, and calculate usage and statistics. The credit is equivalent to 500Kb. Thus, if a document size is 1.4Mb, 3 credits will be deducted from the account upon export. The credit allowance is renewed at the end of each monthly iteration. The number of available credits and the date of the iteration end are available in the account details page.

Don't worry, we will not terminate your service right away. However, you will be notified via email and granted an additional 10% of your monthly allowance. If you exceed this limit, your service will be suspended untill the end of your current monthly iteration. The date of the iteration end is available in the account details page.
