Transloadit is a SaaS with a subscription model.
We offer a discount of 75%, effectively counting only every fourth byte of audio files that you encode with /audio/encode. Assuming an average input audio file of 3.8MB and an output of 3.04MB, here's what it would approximately cost to encode audio files per Plan:
|Plan||Price||Costs per file within your Plan||Overage Fee|
to encode 399 audio files
to encode the first 1996 audio files
|Small Business (30GB)||$99/month||
to encode the first 5988 audio files
|Medium Business (150GB)||$249/month||
to encode the first 29941 audio files
Just like with your mobile plan, pricing goes down when you commit to larger monthly volumes. When you reach your plan's limit, we'll continue to service you, but remind you to upgrade to more cost-efficient plans. This is unless you explicitly set budgets. You can change plans at any time. More info and available plans on our Pricing page.
