On-Demand Usage and Pricing

Jump-start computer vision projects with $100 in free credits that let users experience each step of our vision AI platform. After a user exceeds their free credits, they will be asked to enter a credit card to enable pay-as-you-go pricing or reach out to our team to discuss custom Enterprise pricing.
Pay-as-you-go pricing allows users to pay only for usage and functionality that fits their business needs. Remember, data annotations are free!

Plainsight Consumption Units (PCUs) are used to calculate cost from usage. Read more about PCUs and how they are used in calculating your invoice:


Pay-as-you-go pricing allows you to use features beyond the free credits without interruption. You will be charged based on your PCU usage. Data annotations are free of charge.
To activate pay-as-you-go pricing, or to unlock features whose usage limits have been reached, simply add a payment method.

Billing Cycles

A billing cycle begins on the date when the account is created. The billing date will typically be the same day of the month each month - for example, a cycle that starts on the 20th of the month will always be billed on the 20th. If the billing date falls on the 31st of the month, or a date that does not exist that month, it would default to the last day of the month. For example, a cycle starting on January 31 bills on February 28 (or February 29 in a leap year), then March 31, April 30, and so on.
At the cycle end you will be charged for any usage that has accrued during that billing cycle. An exception is the storage fee incurred when an account is deactivated.
You may also choose to set a Billing Threshold to control when you are billed. Read more about Billing Thresholds:
