Moesif plans have both a committed monthly quota and pay-as-you-go for any events above your quota. This gives you options depending on your requirements. You can either leverage the discounts by committing to a larger plan, or you can maintain flexibility by simply pay-as-you-go.
Committed use discounts
Your plan defines your commitment level (i.e. a minimum monthly event quota), which enables you to get steep discounts relative to pay-as-you-go. For both Growth and Enterprise plans, the per-unit pricing decreases as you upgrade tiers which makes it easy to scale to billions of events without high cost.
For example, if you commit to 5 million events, your per-unit cost is $1.42 per 10k events. Once you upgrade to the 15 million plan, your per unit cost drops to $1.38 per 10k events. As you upgrade to very high volumes, this drops down to pennies per 10k.
There is no requirement to commit to a large plan upfront. Events above your monthly quota are simply pay-as-you-go. This provides you flexibility if your usage varies each month without fear of being locked into long term commitments.
The pay-as-you-go rate is defined by your subscription tier, which decreases as you upgrade your plan.
If you’re unsure of your projected volume, it’s recommended to start on a smaller plan as anything above is pay-as-you-go. When you’re ready to commit to a larger plan, you can upgrade at any time.
Your monthly events resets on your monthly billing day which can be found within My Subscription
Upgrades and Downgrades
You can upgrade your tier at anytime. This makes it easy to start on a small plan and upgrade your plan as you start consistently going over your quota. The upgrade is prorated through your existing billing cycle. For example, if you are 6 months into a 12-month subscription term, then 50% of your previous payment would be refunded and applied to the upgrade. Your subscription renewal date does not change.
Downgrades are applied at the next renewal. Moesif is unable to downgrade before renewal. The cost savings you enjoy from committed use discounts is due to Moesif’s ability to also commit to a minimum spend with our cloud vendors like AWS and Azure. These vendor contracts are locked in for 1 year or 3 year terms and unable to be downgraded.
Billing and Usage Notification
Within “My Subscription”, you can define usage alerts so you know when you are close to or exceeding your included monthly quota. This can be done by clicking the “+ Billing Notification” button. You can add a subscription owner or other member to take action such as upgrading the plan or adjust sampling rules to ensure you stay within your expected quota. Ensure you add firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book.
