Custom plan

Your Custom plan

We can craft a plan thatʼs perfectly suited to your needs:
  • Any amount of GBs / Priority job slots
  • Custom set of features
  • Reduced transcoding queue times and faster file processing
  • Dedicated support for self-hosted Uppy & Tus
  • Premium features like white labeling
  • Custom Robot and feature development
  • Direct communication via a Slack Connect channel
  • 24/7 priority support and SLAs

What do I get for 1 GB?

We sum input & output file size. So, transcoding an 800 MB video into a 200 MB one counts 1 GB. Some of our Robots are free or only count a fraction of the file sizes, though.

What are Priority job slots?

They determine how many jobs you can have waiting in the Live Queue before subsequent jobs will be pushed into the slower Batch Queue. Each plan includes slots that allow priority traffic. A plan with 200 slots gives 200 in each of the three regions that Transloadit operates in.

Using Transloadit saves development and maintenance. Being able to focus on our product instead of reinventing the wheel cannot be understated.

Frequently asked questions

Are there any discounts?

Yes! Certain robots are lighter on our infrastructure and we can offer them at large discounts, or even for free:

Students and teachers can use Transloadit for free through our GitHub partnership.

Open source projects and nonprofits can use Transloadit for free by placing a "powered by Transloadit" link on their website. Reach out.

Can I use the Community plan for more than one month?

Absolutely! The Community Plan’s included 5GB replenish every month and are free forever.

Can Transloadit host my files?

When using Transloadit, you keep ownership of your content. We briefly touch files and then save the results on your storage of choice (S3, SFTP, etc). It’s straightforward to create an Amazon S3 bucket, optionally wrap it with a CDN, and use that for distribution. Check out our file exporting options.

Do you offer custom payment plans?


You don’t need to be an enterprise to benefit from our Enterprise plan. It has perks for businesses of any size. If you’re committed to a significant monthly usage and you want to get the most out of Transloadit, we’re happy to customize a payment plan for you. Get in touch ›

Is the data volume reset monthly?

Yes. The data limit is reset to the amount of GB included in your plan at the beginning of each month.

What happens if my plan limit is reached?

If you did not explicitly set a billing limit in your account, you will just be charged overage. That means you will pay a slightly higher dollar per gigabyte price than your plan includes. You will also receive warnings by email, which will allow you to upgrade to more cost effective plans when that is possible.

For instance, our Startup plan comes at $49 per month with 30 GB included and $1.80 per additional GB. If you used up 30.8 GB, you would pay $49 + 0.8 × $1.80 = $50.44.

Which payment plan do you recommend?

Generally speaking, the more you can commit to using Transloadit, the more affordable it becomes. We recommend to start with the free-forever Community plan, and level up when the time is right. We’ll contact you when more cost-effective plan upgrades are in sight. You can change payment plans at any time. If your business demands more performance, encoding features or commercial support, choose the Startup plan. If you already know you can commit to 1TB a month or more, reach out for an Custom plan.

Why are there Transloadit watermarks on my files?

As of May 24th 2024, we enabled Transloadit watermarks on files for free-tier plans. The Transloadit service remains free to use, however to remove the watermarks from your Assemblies, it's now necessary to upgrade to a paid plan. You can find a selection of our pricing plans here, or get in touch with our best-in-class support team if you need something more custom.

This change allows us to enable every Robot for the community plan, meaning all of our functionality is now available for free.

Why don’t you charge by the minute?

Charging by the byte allows us to support any kind of conversion with a single $/GB metric.

Transloadit handles many types of files. Not all of those have a duration (documents, zip files, images, web pages) and the ones that do (audio & video) are not all created equal. If we charged by the minute, we would need separate rates for low-res vs. 4K. That’s already getting quite complex and it would only get worse when new formats come out — 32K anyone?

We do offer discounts when we can in order to pass on savings. For instance, because 🤖/video/thumbs is very lightweight, it only counts every tenth byte flowing through.
