Can I purchase in advance and prepay for transcription / translation credit?

Definitely, you can add credit.

Jan 23, 2022

Option 1: buy from your dashboard (The preferable option!)

Buy prepaid credit minutes: by clicking "Add Credit" in the header of your Simon Says dashboard. When you purchase the credit it will be automatically added to your account so you can start using.

Option 2: buy from an external link

If you want an external party who does not have access to your Simon Says account, such as a project manager or client, to purchase your credit: click here. This option is not automated. Once the credit is purchased, let us know and we will manually add the credit to your account.


  1. Prepaid credit is available at the rate of your payment plan. Example: If you are on Pay As You Go, buying 20 hours of credit will be $300.
  2. If you are on a membership plan with a discounted transcription rate, the prepaid credit is valid only as long as you remain a member. If you unsubscribe and discontinue your membership, any remaining prepaid credit will expire.
  3. Pay As You Go prepaid credits are valid for 6 months.
  4. There are no refunds for unused credits, sorry.
