What are 'runs' and 'credits' in a BrightLocal plan?
Every plan has allocated credits for scheduled reports and ad hoc runs. Our Price Comparison Breakdown provides details of the allocation for each plan.
To see how many credits are remaining for each tool, simply click on the ‘Plans & Credits’ option that's shown below in the red box.
Ad hoc and bundled credits
Ad hoc credits are one-off report credits that don't renew each month — once used, they are gone for good.
Bundled credits are part of your monthly subscription package, and they renew on your billing date each month. If you are billed annually, these credits also renew on your billing date each month; this is the day of the month when you last paid for your annual plan.
This means that if you use all of these credits during the month, you would have to purchase additional ones to run further reports before your next billing date.
Any unused bundled credits do not carry over.
Don't worry if you have run out of credits, as addons are always available depending on which plan has been purchased. Head to Billing Details within your dashboard and click 'Addons' to see all available addons.
We can offer addons for a wide range of uses, including:
- Extra Rank Checker reports
- Daily reporting for Reputation Manager
- Extra Reputation Campaigns
- Extra Local Search Audit reports
- Extra Citation Tracker reports
- Extra Google My Business Audits
To find out more, simply take a look at our FAQ on how to purchase additional addons.
Citation Builder credits
Citation Builder credits differ from other credits because Citation Builder is a service, rather than a tool.
You can purchase Citation Builder credits in bulk to save money. Each credit is the equivalent of one listing submission / update. Buy in bulk at just $2 per credit instead of the standard $3.
