I have one question regarding SMS credits on the klaviyo plan. I read something about messages send from Zendesk count toward the SMS billing plan. So that means, I’ll need 1 credit to send a response to a message from zendesk to a US number?

Hey @Grace Geraldo - that is correct! After you integrate Klaviyo with Zendesk and start responding to SMS messages from the Zendesk console, the messages are actually sent through Klaviyo’s send/receive network (meaning it uses Klaviyo’s sending infrastructure to do this). That means the same Klaviyo SMS sending credit rules apply to messages sent from Zendesk (or Gorgias if you use that integration). You can learn more about SMS sending credits and pricing per message here:
