Account & Billing

Credits

You can see the credits (words) that you have converted to audio in a month.

Credits are updated based on your billing cycle i.e. one month after the date you sign up. The monthly quota resets every month and the credits cannot be carried over or accumulated to the next monthโ€™s quota.

If you find any discrepancyโ€™s in the quota itโ€™s usually since every change of section reconverts the entire paragraphs and all the words will be recounted in your quota, to avoid this we recommend keeping the section/ paragraphs smaller in length.

Manage and Update Billing

Paid subscription members can change and update billing details.

You can access it from Account โ†’ Credits โ†’ Manage Billing and you will be able to update your company name, VAT and other details.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does Fliki work?

Fliki uses top of line AI-powered Text-To-Speech engines developed by industry leaders like Google, Microsoft and Amazon to provide curated voices to choose from.

Who owns the content?

Publishing rights are owned by the user of the content, Fliki does not own any content. The stock images/clips used are royalty-free and the music is copyright free, giving the user of any paid plan commercial rights.

What is your refund policy?

We let everyone try all our features and keep using our product for free for as long as they want with no obligation to upgrade. 

Unfortunately, once you have subscribed to the premium plan we can not issue a refund as this might lead to potential misuse and abuse of our services.

We have seen many cases of service abuse in the past where customers would generate a lot of content for their one-off needs and cancel the plan, leaving us with a huge bill to foot. We incur costs from Google and Microsoft for every generation and hence need to have certain policies in place so we can sustain ourselves. 

Can I add/ upload my own audio files?

Yes, this was a major requirement be it adding intro/ outro music to your podcast or adding an entire existing recorded podcast episode. You can upload your own mp3,m4a files in between scripts by clicking on the options icon (3 dots) on the right of the section /paragraph and choose โ€œUpload fileโ€ from the listed options.

Can I embed the audio generated in my blog?

Absolutely, we believe user retention increases when given them an option to consume your article in audio format. Once you are happy with the audio output you can easily find the script in the folder view. Click on the options (3 dots) icon show on the right side and select โ€œEmbedโ€. This will give you an iFrame code, copy this code and paste it the part of the website you want it to be shown.

Can I embed the podcast episode in my website?

Absolutely, we already provide a public page for your podcast, but if you still want to showcase it on your own website, we do provide that option. Go to the podcast episode listing view. Click on the options (3 dots) icon show on the right side and select โ€œEmbedโ€. This will give you an iFrame code, copy this code and paste it the part of the blog you want it to be shown.

What are AI or Neural Network based voices?

Artificial Intelligence, Neural Networks are the advanced methods of training machines to learn from hundreds of hours of real human voices and generate voice models.

These models are then fine-tuned to produce the results you see on Fliki.

How to track my usage or view my credits?

What are credits?

Credits are the number of words you are allowed to convert into audio per month.

Fliki offers 500 credits per month under the free plan, when you create an account.

Can I stack codes?

Currently, we do not support stacking codes, simple cause we believe most users will be satisfied with the 30,000-word limit, with which you can easily convert over 20+ long-form blogs or 8+ podcast episodes. And we wanted to keep the deal at an economical price as it opens the opportunity for many creators.

Why do you not offer unlimited character conversions?

Fliki uses state-of-the-art Text-to-Speech engines built by Google, Azure, Amazon and soon IBM. We are charged by these providers for every character converted. So itโ€™s simply not feasible to provide unlimited conversions.

Yes, we are aware of certain solutions that offer unlimited conversions, but weโ€™re here for the long run. We intend to build Fliki to the next level with a solid set of features.

How can I get extra credits?

Fliki is a newcomer in the market, we need your help to put us on the map. In exchange for your valuable reviews/shares on certain sites we award certain credits, you can head over to the rewards section under the accounts tab to find out more.
