Billing & Additional Charges

Billing is by the message request. Any request over the plan amount will be charged at $0.01/5,000 API requests. (An additional 10M requests will be $20.) You can change plans at any time to fit your needs.

API Requests & High Availability

An API request is an operation on a queue or a message (such as create queue or push, get, or delete message). High availability means deployment in multiple zones to provide an even higher level of durability and reliability.

Task Priorities

Note that most tasks run with much shorter latencies only except under heavy system load.
Standard (p0) High (p1) Highest (p2)
Target Max Queue Time 15 Min 2 Min 15 Sec
Cost in Time 1X 2X 3X


Billing & Additional Charges

All billing is by the second and only for setup and processing time. For example, a 20-second task will count as 20 seconds against the hours in the plan. Compute hours that exceed the rated plan will be billed at a rate of $0.075/hr. The free plan provides 10 hours/mo.

Priorities & Schedules

Higher priority time (p1/p2) will count as double/triple time. For example, 1hr of p1 tasks will be counted as 2hrs of processing time. The targeted max time in queue for a p0 task is 15min, p1 is 2min, p2 is 15sec. Schedules refer to number of active schedules maintained (i.e. run every 15min counts as one schedule).

Concurrency & High Memory

Each plan is provisioned for a maximum number of concurrent workers (i.e. the number of workers that can run at the same time). For users on the Production plan, tasks can be run in the High Memory cluster. Note that tasks using the High Memory configuration will have a 5x cost in concurrency allowances which means that tasks running at High Memory in a Production plan, for example, will have a max concurrency level of 50.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have a free plan?

Yes. We have a Lite plan at no charge that you can use for as long as you want. You get a rich set of messaging and worker features and a set of resources that lets you get real work done or just try out our service. When you need more serious features and resources, we’re here for you.

When do you start charging my credit card?

Not until you explicitly select a paid on the Plans page within your account. You start on the Lite plan and get a trial of advanced features when you first sign up. You can stay on the free plan indefinitely or select a paid plan at any point at which point we’ll bill at the end of each month.

What if I choose a plan mid-month?

We bill you on a pro-rata basis rounded to the week.

What happens once the set number of api requests, compute hours, or data volume in a plan is reached?

Service will continue without interruption provided you have the setting for overages turned on in your Dashboard. You can also turn the additional resources option off and thereby set a hard stop at the plan amount. The default is unlimited resources. See each service for the rates for additional resources above plan amounts.

What happens if I turn the default off and hit the plan amount?

If you turn the default off and hit the plan limit, then subsequent API requests will return errors. (Specifically, the services will return an HTTP status code of 403.)

Can I adjust the plan limits?

You can either increase or decrease your plans at will. Upgraded plans will take effect immediately. Downgraded plans in the month after the change. You can also turn on unlimited usage and you'll be billed at additional resource rates for amounts over the plan.

Will I be notified as I reach or exceed the plan amounts?

Yes. You’ll be notified on a regular basis of your usage (provided you have notifications turned on) as well as if you get close and/or reach the plan amounts. Note that you can switch plans at any time and the resources in an upgraded plan will apply for that month.

Can I create a custom plan?

If you’re a heavy user and/or have specific needs, please let us know and we’d be happy to work with you to customize a plan that fits your needs. Contact us for more details.

What's included in the free trial?

We offer a generous free trial that gives you all the features needed to evaluate our products in a real-world environment. We include all the features listed as part of the Developer plan, with the resources of the Lite plan. In addition, during the trial period you can enter your credit card information in order to unlock additional resources. Note you won’t be billed during these 30 days. The credit card information is just to verify your account.

What happens when my free trial ends?

If you don’t select a plan in the Plans section of your Dashboard prior to the end of 30 days then your account will be moved to the Lite plan. Note, however, that you may lose access to certain features and capabilities that are available in paid plans.

Have other questions?

We’d be happy to assist. Ask us directly.
