Why are there Export Credits?


Flexitive is hosted in the cloud, which means you’re always using the newest version of Flexitive and you can access Flexitive from any device. Every time a design is exported from Flexitive, our servers do a lot of work, including automatic image resizing and code minification, which has a cost. Standard and Premium accounts get 50 Export Credits free every month. If you want more than 50 export credits, an export credit package can be purchased.


What’s an Export Credit and why do I need them?


Think of an Export Credit as a voucher that’s used when exporting HTML5 design from Flexitive. Exporting static images from Flexitive is always free. Designs can be exported in three ways:


  1. Static Images: Static images are free to export from Flexitive, and are commonly used for Social Media networks, like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Selecting ‘Export as Static Image’ before exporting your design will provide you with a set of JPG image files.

    In the export above, 3 image sizes are being exported, and no export credits are used.
  2. HTML5 - ZIP:  HTML5 design can include animations, video, webfonts, clickthrough URLs and more. An HTML5 ZIP export contains all of the files a design needs to work, including an Index.html, images, and an automatically generated backup image.

    In the export above, three design sizes  (300x250, 728x90, 160x600) are being exported as an HTML5 ZIP. Each design size costs one export credit, thus, with 3 design sizes, the HTML5 ZIP export costs 3 export credits. An export credit IS NOT used every time you export a design size from Flexitive. If you export a design size that is in the 90 day Free Change period, no export is counted.

  3. HTML5 - Design Tag: HTML5 design can include animations, video, webfonts, clickthrough URLs and more. An HTML5 design tag is a link to design files on Flexitive’s servers, whenever the design tag is loaded, the design's files are loaded from Flexitive’s servers. When design-tags are exported, serving fees apply (CPM Rates).

    In the export above, three design sizes (300x250, 728x90, 160x600) are being exported as an HTML5 design tag. Each design size costs one export credit, thus, with 3 design sizes, the HTML5 design tag export costs 3 export credits.
    An export credit IS NOT used every time you export a design size from Flexitive. If you export a design size that is in the 90 day Free Change period, no export is counted.


If you run out of export credits in a month, you’ll still be able to publish your designs at $1.50 per export.


90 Day Free Change Period


After a design is exported as an HTML5 ZIP or an HTML5 Tag, that design enters the 90-Day Free Change Period. While a design is in the 90-Day Free Change Period:

  • Making a change to that design, and exporting a previously exported design size as an HMTL5 Zip, or HTML5 Tag is free (costs zero export credits).

  • Exporting a design in a different file format (e.g. exporting HTML5 ZIP instead of Tags) from the original format or for a different ad server while the design is in the 90-Day Free Change Period, is also free

  • The 90-Day Free Change Period allows you to re-export your design after making revisions, for example:

    • A 300x250 is exported as an HTML5 Zip on March 1, 2017, and the export costs 1 export credit. 
      • Until May 30 (90 calendar days) the design is in the 90-Day Free Change Period.
         
    • On April 1, 2017 the 300x250 is revised and the 300x250 is exported as an HTML5 Zip.
      • Since the 300x250 is in the 90-Day Free Change Period, the export is free.

    • On April 1, 2017 a 728x90 design is built in the same project as the 300x250 and the 728x90 is exported as an HTML5 ZIP
      • Since the 728x90 was not exported previously, the export costs 1 export Credit.

    • On June 1, 2017 the 300x250 and 728x90 are revised and exported again as HTML5 Zips.
      • Since the design is no longer in the 90-Day Free Change Period, the export costs 2 export Credits. 
      • The design re-enters the 90-Day Free Change Period which will last until August 30 (90 calendar days)

After 90 days from the first publish date, the design is no longer in the 90-Day Free Change Period and publishing that design will count as an export again. The design will then enter the 90-day grace period again.


CPM Rates



When a design is exported as a 3rd party tag or as an iframe embed, the assets and code for the design are hosted on the Flexitive CDN. Because the assets are stored on Flexitive's servers, the CPM associated with your account will apply. Our standard CPM rates are listed below.


 If you download a ZIP file from Flexitive, we do not charge a CPM on that design.


Charging Exports


To purchase an Export Credit Package please contact your account manager, and they will be able to help set you up with an Export Credit Package. If you are unsure of who your account manager is, contact a member of the Flexitive Support team at support@flexitive.com.


Exports are counted on a per design basis. This means that if you have a Flexitive project with a 300x250, a 728x90, and a 160x600 size and you export all of the sizes in the project, it will count as 3 exports towards your monthly cap.


An export is not counted when you:

  • Publish a size that is still in its 90 day grace period

  • Publish a static image

  • Create a preview page for your designs


An export is counted every time that you:

  • Publish your design as a ZIP

  • Publish your design as a Tag

  • Publish your design for a CMS


You are still able to publish designs after you use all the exports in your package, at $1.50 per export.


Flexitive Export Credit Packages


If you need more than 50 exports a month, you can purchase an Export package with your monthly subscription. This will allow you publish designs after the first 50 without incurring the $1.50 per export charge. The default package options are listed below:



To purchase a Flexitive Export Package, reach out to your account manager, and they can help you find the right export credit package for your business. If you aren’t sure who your account manager is, contact us at support@flexitive.com. We'll get you in touch with your account manager and figure out a plan that fits your needs. 


If you know that in a particular month you will need to publish more than usual, we can change your export package for that month, and then return you to the old export package for the following months. You can also reduce the size of your export package for months you know will have a lower than usual volume of design production. This can help you avoid larger export fees for months where you will be building large amounts of design.
