Pricing

Backendless Cloud Pricing

Backendless Cloud offers flexible pricing options. Starting with the free plan, anyone can sign up and begin building apps using all available features of the platform. As your application begins to consume more server-side resources and/or the volume of API calls increases, additional pricing plans offer greater functional limits. Starting with the ‘Developer’ plan, you can increase the limits by purchasing corresponding Function Packs from the Marketplace.

Freedom to Switch

You can easily change your plan in Backendless Console. The Billing interface displays available plans, marking your current plan with a checkbox next to the plan name. The “show current usage” link opens a popup that explains the current usage of the backend resources as well as the current plan limits (see image to the right).

 

To switch to another plan, click the Select button for the corresponding plan. The console displays a popup providing a plan selection summary. When selecting the Developer, Cloud9 or Cloud99 plan and the current usage of backend resources is greater than the limits offered by the plan, Backendless selects all additional Function Packs that would be required to cover the overage.
