How many contacts could be added to my mailing list? What is the cost and how many emails can be sent at a single time?
Contacts/leads can be added to your Zoho Campaigns account based on the subscription plan. Here’s the link to our pricing page.
You can choose either a monthly or yearly subscription and a subscriber- or email-based plan, depending on your requirements. There is also a pay-as-you-go plan for users who use Zoho Campaigns for two or three months in a year.
The subscriber-based plan is based on the number of contacts in your account. You can purchase the plan for a specific number of contacts and then send those contacts unlimited emails, set autoresponders, and use workflows. For example, if you choose a subscriber-based plan for 1000, you can store up to 1000 contacts and you can send unlimited emails to those 1000 contacts.
