RecurPost fights misuse of its generous free plan


We at RecurPost believe in the power of small businesses. We understand that small businesses cannot always afford the services that their larger counterparts enjoy. Hence, we decided to keep RecurPost free from day one.

Our free plan powers small businesses to manage up to 3 of their social profiles without paying us anything. There is no time limit on this plan either. You can use it as long as you want and only need to upgrade to a paid plan when you have outgrown the limit of 3 social accounts.

However, this created a problem for us. People started misusing our services. Those who wanted to manage more than 3 profiles simply started creating multiple free RecurPost accounts. We ourselves are a startup and hence can not afford that.

Therefore, we had to place some checks in our system to avoid this. Now, when you try to add your account we look for other profiles/pages/groups that you also administer. If any of those is already using RecurPost, we do not let you have another RecurPost account.

This essentially wiped all the misusers. However, it created a little inconvenience for some genuine users. For instance, if you already have your own RecurPost account and now want to setup your partner’s account on RecurPost, you will not be able to create a separate account for them. This will happen only if you were an admin on their pages to be managed by RecurPost.

However, your partner can setup his own account just fine. Your partner will be able to add their Facebook, Twitter, Google My Business, LinkedIn, Instagram accounts just fine as long as they are not an admin on yours.

Please bear with us as this little inconvenience helps us keep the lights on.
