Managing your Account's Support Plan

A Twilio Support Plan identifies the support service plan for your account. Every account created is automatically assigned the free Developer plan, with Twilio‑grade email support, right out of the box. 

To learn more about what each support plan offers see Twilio's paid support plans.

Notice: If you have multiple account SIDs in which you would like to apply the same support plan to you can work with your Account Executive or our Sales team to include a support plan in your contractual agreement across multiple account SIDs.

How are Twilio Support Plans Billed?

Twilio's paid support plans are billed on a per-month basis per account SID according to your product usage. Customers are free to upgrade or downgrade their service plan at will, but mid-month plan changes will be pro-rated. This guide explains how support plan changes are calculated.

Pro-rating explained

For both usage and flat based support, customers will get charged for support on a pro-rata basis from start date of their support plan.

For example, here's what you can expect if you upgrade your service plan on the 15th of the month:

  • Your upgraded support plan benefits will become immediately available on the 15th.
  • You will be charged at the beginning of the next month based on the following pro-rating calculations:
    Total monthly support charge * (Days support plan was active / Days in month)

Notice: Usage for all accounts and subaccounts that share the same support plan will count towards calculating your total support charge.
