Pay-As-You-Go Pricing is now available to Pruvan users! Over the years our users requested this pricing option and we’re now proud to offer it. There is, of course, fine print associated with any pricing option, so we’ll be going over the specific particulars of this plan here.
Questions? Contact Pruvan Support.
With our Pay-As-You-Go pricing plan (also known as our “Usage Based” plan), you only pay for what you use. You will be charged $1 per work order on a weekly basis from any device. If you’re familiar with our standard pricing plans and the active device requirement, that is no longer an issue. Simply create a project and start taking photos with Pruvan on any mobile device.
There are some limits, however: a project is limited to 5000 photos, 25 tasks, and constrained to a single work week (Monday – Sunday, Central Time). Charges for the week will be calculated and will appear every Monday morning on the Subscriptions page in your Pruvan Online account. You can also view pending charges on the Subscriptions page. You will be billed monthly, starting 30 days from your inital subscription date.
New Subscriptions and Pending Charges:
When you subscribe to our Usage Based plan, you may see a charge appear in your pending charges list. This pending charge accounts for any potential activity you may have had from Monday at 12:01AM through the time at which you subscribed. So if you completed 1 project on a Tuesday and then subscribed on a Thursday, you’d immediately see a pending charge of $1. On the following Monday morning, you will see the usage added for the rest of the work week, and you’ll get weekly updates every Monday from then on. Pending charges are shown by work week and by integration type.
Example: Take photos on 2 non-integration projects, 4 projects for a client integration, and 6 projects for a second client integration you will see the following pending charges that Monday:
|Date||Description||Qty||Unit Price||Sub Total|
|02-20-2017||Usage from 2017-02-13 to 2017-02-19: Standard Project||2||$1.00||$2.00|
|02-20-2017||Usage from 2017-02-13 to 2017-02-19: Client 1 API v2||4||$1.00||$4.00|
|02-20-2017||Usage from 2017-02-13 to 2017-02-19: Client 2 API v2||6||$1.00||$6.00|
If you currently have a Pruvan Device Based plan and would like to switch to a Usage Based plan, know that your usage charge will be calculated from the time you cancel your Device Based plan to the time you sign up for Usage Based plan, at a maximum period of 2 work weeks.
Example: You cancel your device plan on Feb 1, 2017 (Wed) and subscribe to usage billing on Feb 4, 2017 (Sat). You will be charged for any activity from Feb 2 – Feb 3 as subscription activity and activity from Feb 4 – Feb 5 as Usage Based activity on Monday. The initial charge only goes back to your last active subscription.
Example: You cancel your device plan on Nov 13, 2016 and subscribe to usage billing on Feb 4, 2017. You will be charged for activity from Jan 23, 2017 (Mon) – Feb 3 as subscription activity and activity from Feb 4 – Feb 5 as Usage Based activity on Monday. Any inital charge caps out at 2 work weeks, so it would only go back to the 23rd.
Example: You take 2600 photos on 4 different tasks for project number 551234 over the course of 2 days (Tue – Wed) on 3 devices. You will only be charged $1.
- Photo Limit – If you were to take 5600 photos in that example you would be charged $2 since there’s a 5000 photo limit.
- Task Limit – If you were to take those 2600 photos over 40 tasks on that same project, then you would also be charged $2 since there’s a 25 task limit.
- Crossing the work week – If you were to take those 2600 photos on Sun and Mon then you would be charged $2 since the charges are calculated as of midnight Monday morning.
- Different Project Numbers – Projects are tracked by the project number. So any time you take photos on a different project you will accrue another $1 charge. If you took the photos in the example and then took 2 photos on project number 551234-1 then you would be charged $2 since you took photos on 2 different projects.
