Yes! Our free plan is intended for hobbyists, personal projects and small teams. The included allocations are generous enough for a team to evaluate whether Snaplet is the right solution to make sure they’re never blocked again by bad data (spoiler alert: it is!)
We don’t require a credit card to sign up for Snaplet, and overage billing is opt-in, so you can rest assured we’ll never charge you for overages without your express permission.
If you’re on our free plan and you exceed any of your usage parameters, we’ll prompt you to upgrade, or limit your your usage for the remainder of the month.
If you’re a pro plan user, depending on whether you’ve opted in to usage-based overage billing, you will either be billed pro rata on a per-usage basis, or your functionality may be limited. Learn more about our per-usage basis costs.
Yes, absolutely. Your overage billing settings give you control over each of your variable costs and how they’re treated, and you’re also able to set a monthly global spend cap that will never be exceeded for peace of mind.
No, we charge per team, irrespective of how many people on the team use Snaplet. We think per seat costs disincentivize teams to use tools like Snaplet, and we want your entire team to benefit from being able to code against realistic data. Our pro plan is meant to be broadly inclusive for what most medium to large sized teams would require, with the option to incur usage-based billing for any specific overages. We think this helps keep Snaplet affordable and flexible to meet the needs of most teams.
Snapshots are stored on an Amazon S3 instance, and as such, there’s a cost for the absolute size of all snapshots (snapshot storage), and the cost for transferring data in and out of that S3 instance when you capture a snapshot or restore that snapshot to a database (snapshot data transfer). When you capture a snapshot, we start up a Fargate worker to connect to your database and turn it into a snapshot. The time taken by that Fargate worker is the snapshot compute time. These values are always visible in your project dashboard for the current month.
Similarly, we use Neon.tech for preview databases, which also incur compute time, storage, and data transfer fees. These are also visible in your project dashboard.
Our Pro plan is billed via credit card, upfront, for the month ahead. Usage-based costs are billed pro-rata, daily.
Absolutely. If you cancel or downgrade your account, any unused allocations can still be used until the end of the month.
Our Pro plan has no commitment period - you can use it for as long or little as you’d like. We don’t want to lock you into a lengthy contract.
