Pricing

Backendless Cloud Pricing

Backendless offers two cloud-based pricing plans, both of which offer¬†unlimited developer seats at no extra cost. The Free Plan is designed for exploring and learning the platform. The Scale Plan is where you will develop your application, publish it, and manage it once it’s live – and scale without limit. You can expand the Scale Plan with Function Packs from the Backendless Marketplace. All pricing is per application.
