* All prices without taxes. Depending on your location and business type, taxes might be added

*** The price for stored content is independent from the number of devices that use you videos/images.
info-beamer hosted is using a prepaid model by default. Sign up for free and you can start immediately with a full featured account, so you don't have to choose between different billing tiers. One managed device and 1GB of storage are totally free forever, so you can use or just test out our service on a single Pi immediately.
Want more than a single screen? Just purchase additional Pis, install our software and add them to your account. Service credits are used daily depending on the number of devices and the storage you actually use. If you run out of credits, you can easily add more using a credit card. Our service grows naturally with your usage.
You can easily calculate the costs of running an info-beamer installation.
Simply provide the number of devices and the total size of stored content
and you can see the expected costs for your setup.
devices and GB storage :
with maximum discount of 25% (see below)
Discounts of up to 25% with increased usage or automatic invoicing
While the prices on this page are given in €, internally service credits are used. Usually 1 service credit costs 1 € by default.
You can purchase service credits in our info-beamer shop. Greater quantities of credits are discounted. The more credits you purchase at once, the bigger the discount. You can save up to 25% that way.
Alternatively you can request automatic invoicing to get a 25% discount regardless of how much you use our service. This has the additional benefit that you don't have to remember to add service credits manually: Save time and money!
Do I need a credit card to sign up?
No. A credit card is not required. Once you have signed up and your email address has been confirmed you get 5 € worth of credits added to your account. The first device and 1GB of storage are free, so you'll never pay for that. Payment for the service is only required if you need to purchase additional credits once your usage of the info-beamer hosted service increases beyond the free tier and you run out of credits.
Is the hardware included?
No. info-beamer hosted is purely software as a service. We don't provide hardware but make it as easy as possible to use our service on your Pi or Compute Module hardware. See also this page for expected hardware costs.
How do I pay?
You can add service credits to your account using all major credit cards, Paypal or SEPA bank transfer (within the EU). Theses service credits are then used internally to pay for your current daily usage.
Is my credit card data safe?
Yes. We don't ever receive or store your credit card information at all. We use stripe.com for all our credit card payments.
Can I see my current costs?
Sure. If you navigate to your account page you'll see your current usage of storage and devices with a precise calculation of your current costs as well as an estimate of how long your account credits will last. On the transactions page you can see the transaction history for the last 31 days.
What happens when I run out of service credits?
You'll get several mails to remind you to add additional service credits to your account. If your balance is negative your devices will show a black screen. We'll try to get in contact with you to see if you want to continue using our service.
Can I setup automated payments?
Yes. We also support automated invoicing for customers that have used the service for a while. You can apply for it here.
Is storage billed in GB increments?
No. Internally it's billed in bytes/day rounded down to the next millicent. So, for example, if you only use 100MB, you only pay 0.002 € per day. Of course you only pay once for storage no matter how many devices use your stored content. So it doesn't matter if you assign a video to all of your device: You only pay once.
Is there a volume discount?
We offer discounts by default. You can save up to 25% that way. But you can of course always contact us regarding custom pricing.
This pricing model seems complicated
At first this might be true. But it offers a lot of advantages compared to the usual tiered pricing models: You don't have to decide upfront of how much you want to use the service. It naturally adapts to how much you use the service. Need an additional 20 monitors for a trade show? Just add them and you'll only get charged while they are in use.
