Why is Bardeen free? Do you have plans for pricing in the future?
We plan to have a Freemium model.
- Most core features on the edge (in your browser) will always be free.
- There will be "premium integrations" stuff like Salesforce, SAP, Shopify, etc., paid on a SaaS subscription model.
- We're considering launching an automation marketplace (like the AppStore for automation), where creators can build and sell automation for specific use cases. We will take a cut from there as other marketplaces do.
- There may be a hosted version on the cloud (so your Autobooks will run even when your laptop is off) - that will be pay-per-use.
This is our current plan, yet, things might change as we learn more.
Our mission is to bring automation to everyone. This means that we'll always have a powerful free plan, especially for our early users!
