Manually Add Funds and Refill your Twilio Project Balance

An upgraded Twilio project defaults to automatically recharging your project balance when it falls under $10. If automatic recharge is not used, you can manually add funds to your Twilio project at any time.

Notification Triggers

All Twilio projects have a default notification trigger that is hit when your balance reaches $5. When this threshold is met, a notification will go out to your email address advising that your balance is low.

The notification trigger is meant as a reminder to refill your project balance, and prevent it from hitting zero (or negative), and being suspended. To automatically refill your project balance as needed, set a payment recharge trigger.

To add a custom balance notification trigger, please contact Support.
