What are credits?
Credits are used in Runway to generate images and videos. One credit is equivalent to $.01 USD.
How many credits come with my plan?
A one-time amount of 125 credits is included with the Free plan. These initial credits do not expire.
A monthly credit allotment is included with Standard and Pro plans every month. These amounts do not roll over to following months, and are reset on your billing date.
Monthly credit amounts are as follows:
How do I get more credits?
If you would like to purchase additional credits, users on Standard and Pro plans may do so by heading to Workspace Settings > Plans & Billing. Purchased credits are not available to Free plan users. Credits may be purchased at a minimum of 1000 credits ($10 USD) per purchase.
Do credits expire?
Monthly plan credits expire on your billing date. Purchased credits do not expire. Initial one-time credits on Free plans do not expire.
How do I know what my billing date is?
Your billing date is the day of the month on which you first initiated your plan. For monthly subscribers, this is also the day that you will receive your monthly subscription charge. For annual subscribers, your billing date is the same date each month (e.g. the 20th of each month), based on when you first initiated your plan.
If I'm on a workspace with multiple users, how are credits used across the workspace?
One set of credits is shared by editors in your workspace, rather than being provided as an additional individual set per editor. If you are initiating a new subscription primarily for the associated credits, we suggest setting that account up independently rather than as a collaborator on an existent workspace.
