To monitor the current usage of your Team's projects, see the Usage guide.

The following Pro features are not available on the trial:

Your trial finishes after 14 days or once your team exceeds the usage limits, whichever happens first. After which, you can opt for one of two paths:

If you wish to continue on the Pro plan, you must add a payment method to ensure a seamless transition from the trial to the paid plan when your trial ends.

To add a payment method, navigate to the Billings page through Settings > Billing. From this point, you will get billed according to the number of users in your team.

Billing begins immediately after your trial ends if you have added a payment method.

Without a payment method, your account reverts to a Hobby plan when the trial ends. All team members will be removed from your team, and all Hobby limits will apply to your team.

Charges apply only if you have a payment method. If a trial finishes and you haven't set payment method, you will not get charged.

You can upgrade to a Pro plan anytime later by visiting Settings > Billing and adding a payment method.

If your Pro trial account gets downgraded to a Hobby account, you can revert this by upgrading to Pro. If you've transferred out the projects that were exceeding the included Hobby usage and want to unpause your Hobby account, contact support.

When you upgrade to Pro, the pause status on your account will get lifted. This reinstates:

  • Full access to all previous projects and deployments
  • Access to the increased limits and features of a Pro account

No charges apply for the months of inactivity. Billing will only cover the current billing cycle.
