Pay nothing till you deploy to production

Develop projects for free—only pay when you deploy to production. Even better, our usage-based pricing software automatically ensures that you are always charged the lowest amount based on your usage. [See example]

Pay nothing till you deploy the project to productionGet a free, full-featured sandboxGet up to 125 million invocations free*

You will only be charged once you deploy your project to the production environment. This charge will be based on:

  • The number of calls per Catalyst component and function execution time.
  • The component used and the Catalyst credit corresponding to the component usage.

What sets us apart?

Free, full-featured sandbox

You can use all of the Catalyst components and deploy your project in the development sandbox free of cost, unlike any other vendor in the industry. You pay nothing when your code is not running.

Usage-based pricing

Pay only for what you use. Depending on your usage, Catalyst will automatically ensure that you always end up paying a lower bill. How? See example below.

Example  

Zylker Technology runs an ecommerce website for selling chocolates and candies. They store the backend information in Catalyst and use its Zia OCR feature to detect handwritten wishlists and add those items to cart. Candy sales are consistent throughout the year, but the website sees peak traffic during Halloween. Let's look how billing would work for them in two scenarios, in a low traffic month (September) and a high traffic month (October).
