My Free Trial Has Ended - What now?...

Thank you for trialing Ubidots! We hope you enjoyed the experience and have found value in the point-and-click development and integration platform we built for you. If you have built something great and do not want to loose it, simply add a valid form of payment or pay with PayPal to activate your Ubidots account.

Below you will find some common notes to help address some of the upfront questions we all have when opting-in or opting-out of a monthly payment plan.

My Account is Deactivated - How do I reactivate it?

To continue developing with Ubidots after the 30 Day Free Trial has ended, a valid form of payment must be on file. Billing is run on all accounts in the first 3 days of each month, after which you will be able to download an Invoice form your profile and billed according to Plan and Add-ons, including any overages. Take me to where I can add my credit card and Reactivate my account.

What happens to my account if I do not continue?

All Ubidots trials continue to collect data for 14 days past the final day of a trial. Ubidots understands holidays and vacations do not always coincide with a 30 Day Trial so we do not penalize you. If you want to pick up your development 2 weeks after you trial has ended, no worries; you can do so freely once your account has been reactivated with an approved form of payment. See above for how to reactivate your account.

How much does Ubidots cost?

Ubidots is a great way to launch cloud and IoT application for any industry vertical. As Ubidots asserts its intention to support users from production to deployment, we believe in flexible pricing to best fit a mutual benefit between Ubidots and the customer. As different business models exists, so too are the capabilities of Ubidots' pricing. Beginning with the $49 per month IoT Entrepreneur Plan, businesses and developers can begin their innovation.
Take me to Ubidots Pricing

To receive a custom quote for your IoT application, please contact Ubidots Sales and let us know the intended size of your deployment and a quote will be provided promptly.

What is the difference between Plans?

Different Plans in Ubidots allow for breakpoints in pricing based on the size of an account. The larger your deployment, the lesser the price per device. Ubidots was built to help you scale and in doing so, our pricing model supports these goals as well.

All Ubidots plans come with an "Included" number of devices and Dots.

What if I have a device count between Plans?

If you want to deploy a set number of devices that does not fit perfectly in one of our packaged Plans, your account will be charged based on the "additional device" breakpoint according to your Plan size. 

It is recommended to take advantage of the breakpoints and overage charges to keep you monthly billing affordable. If you wish to deploy 1,000 Devices, it is more affordable to own an Industrial Plan than to own a Professional Plan and pay the overages (600 extra devices (600*$1) = $600 + $199 = $799 compared to $499 for Industrial Plan). Conversely, if want to deploy 300 Devices, it is more affordable to own the Professional Plan. Run the math when joining Ubidots and elect the best Plan to fit your needs.

How will I be billed?

All billing for Ubidots is run in the first 3 days of each month with an email Invoice issued for each client and their credit card or PayPal account processed the same day.

When will I be billed?

How many Devices are included in my Plan?

IoT Entrepreneur: 25 Devices, no device overage allowed.
Professional: 200 Devices*
Industrial: 1,000 Devices*
Scale: 4,000 Devices*
*All devices that exceed the "included devices" count will be charged based on the "additional device" price for each plan. See above in difference between Plans for more details on breakpoint device prices per plan. 

How many Variables can I have in each Device for Ubidots?

Ubidots devices are all a calculation of 20 Variables per device. Ubidots licenses are priced based on the number of devices active on the platform. Sometime applications call for a single device to have as many as 50-100 variables and therefore each device in Ubidots is a multiple of 20. 

1-20 Variables per Device = 1 Device
21-40 Variables per Device = 2 Devices
41-60 Variables per Device = 3 Devices
61-80 Variables per Device = 4 Devices
81-100 Variables per Device = 5 Devices

Can I extend my trial?

Ubidots does not extend trials. If you wish to continue developing with Ubidots before your solution or POC is complete, the IoT Entrepreneur Plan was created precisely for you.

How can I get my Data now that my account is deactivated?

Deactivated accounts can no longer be accessed without reactivation. Please activate your account in the Billing Section to gain access to data. 

***In order to have the functionality to export the entirety of your data via CSV, an active subscription is required.

How can I cancel my Ubidots account?
