Currently there are 4 plans for Crowdcast which you can view here. They are primarily divided by the number of live attendees per session and the number of hours of streaming per month.
How do live attendees work?
A live attendee is someone who joins a session at some point during the live broadcast. This means you can have an unlimited number of users registering for a crowdcast but are only charged for the folks who show up live.
How do overages work?
If more live attendees show up than your plan includes, you'll be charged 15¢ per extra live attendee. For example, let's say you're on the Pro plan and 255 attendees show up live, then you'll be charged 75¢ for that session. If you want to limit the number of users who can join your event, simply go to the advanced tab on your event settings to limit the number of seats.
How the pricing works for a multi-session event like a virtual conference or summit?
The live attendee count is based on each session. Let's say you're planning to host a virtual summit where you have 3 sessions with each lasting 1 hour and you're on the business plan which includes 1,000 live attendees. Then let's assuming you have 800 users join session 1 live, then 1,100 for session 2, and then 500 for session 3. You only went over your limit on session 2 by 100 users so you would experience an overage fee of $15. If you're expecting more than 3,000 live attendees reach our to our support and we can create custom high-scale plans for you.
How does pricing work for one-off events?
If you're just looking to host a large event and then leave or come back a few months later, just sign up for a plan for the month that you'll be live and either cancel or pause after the event. Pausing allows you to continue getting access to the event and its data for $10/month in the months you're not active.
What if I plan to stream for more than 40 hours in one month?
No problem, just message us in the live chat or [email protected] and we're happy to set you up with a custom plan :)
