Vercel offers three plan tiers: Hobby, Pro, and Enterprise.

The Hobby plan is a complimentary offering for personal, non-commercial use, adhering to our fair usage policy and platform limits. However, for collaborative work with a team, a Pro account becomes necessary.

The trial offers an opportunity to explore Pro features like unlimited Serverless Function requests, 1000 GB-hours of execution, increased application bandwidth, and Speed Insights, free for your trial period.

For a side-by-side comparison of plan features, refer to the plans comparison table.

During your trial, you can include up to 10 team members, facilitating collaboration and management of your team's projects.

Each user account is eligible for up to two Pro plan trials.
  1. Select the scope selector from the dashboard. From the bottom of the list select Create Team. Alternatively, click this button:

The following Pro features are not available on the trial:

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

If you wish to continue enjoying the perks of the Pro plan, you'll need to add a payment method, ensuring a seamless transition from trial to the paid plan upon trial expiration. Billing commences immediately after the trial ends.

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

Billing begins immediately after your trial ends, given that 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 a payment method has been added. If a trial concludes without a card being added, you will not be charged.

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

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

When you upgrade to Pro, the pause status on your account will be 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.
