How to use Cutcaster Credits?

Buying credits to purchase images and illustrations at Cutcaster gives you one more way to download and manage your desired files at a discount. When a user has available credits in their Cutcaster Credit account, they are able to control their budget and immediately download images or vectors from the site without having to checkout everytime. It’s two simple clicks.

On the user’s MyCart page, if the user clicks on the checkout button it will go directly to the usual checkout page where they have two options to pay. The first option is “pay-as-you-go,” which allows you to download any of the content on the site using any major credit card. The second option is buying credits in bulk and then using them. If, however, the users Available Credits are less than the Total Amount of the items in their cart, they can use a credit card to purchase the files or more credits to use. But if the user’s Available Credits are greater than the Total amount, the users can choose between using their Cutcaster Available Credits or just use their credit card.

If you are interested in using your purchased credits with a Cutcaster Corporate Account that will allow you to manage multiple sub-users, allocate credits to each sub-user and have access to customizable analytics, see this comparison of the different purchasing options at Cutcaster or email webmaster@cutcaster.com.
