To downgrade from a Pro to Hobby plan without losing access to the team's projects:

  1. Navigate to your dashboard and select your team from the scope selector
  2. Select the Settings tab
  3. Scroll to the Downgrade sub-section

When you downgrade a Pro team, all active members except for the original owner are removed.

Due to restrictions in the downgrade flow, Pro teams will need to manually transfer any connected Stores and/or Domains to a new destination before proceeding with downgrade.

As the Hobby plan is a free tier there are no billing cycles. In most cases, if you exceed your usage limits on the Hobby plan, you will have to wait until 30 days have passed before you can use the feature again.

Some features have shorter or longer time periods:

As stated in the fair use guidelines, the Hobby plan restricts users to non-commercial, personal use only.

When your personal account gets converted to a Hobby team, your usage and activity log will be reset. To learn more about this change, read the changelog.
