Billing and pricing
In this article, we'll cover how to update your subscription plan, how to update your payment method, and provide additional explanation about our pricing model.
How do I try out Parabola for free?
When you sign up, you’ll be automatically enrolled in a Parabola trial. You’ll get access to most Parabola features for 2 weeks and can choose the right plan for what you need at the end of those two weeks (or sooner!). If you're an existing customer and you'd like to trial one of our paid plans, send us a note at email@example.com.
Can I use Parabola for free?
Absolutely! We have a Basic plan that gives you up to 3 flows that you can run as much as you want manually, which is more than enough to give Parabola a spin before having to upgrade. Additionally, when you sign up, you get 2 weeks at no cost, so you can play around with Parabola before choosing to upgrade to a paid plan!
How do I change my plan or cancel my account?
You can update your subscription and payment method at any time, directly from the Billing page. To navigate to the Billing page, click on the avatar icon in the top right corner and click "Billing" from the dropdown.
Updating your payment method
You can also change your stored payment method at any time by clicking on the blue "edit" link next to the "Subscription" panel.
How can I earn credit?
You can earn credit by inviting your colleagues and friends to Parabola using your referral link. When you're signed in, click on your profile photo and Refer a Friend, copy your referral link and start sharing!
I'm confused about something with pricing, is there someone I can talk to?
Absolutely, feel free to send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can answer your questions over email or hop on a call to discuss.
What's included within "standard integrations"?
All integrations, including API steps, are included in "standard integrations," except: Amazon Seller Central, Facebook Ads, FTP, Google Analytics, Looker, Shopify, ShipStation, and Snowflake.
What's a scheduled flow?
A scheduled flow is one that runs automatically, as opposed to manually. Scheduled flows are triggered by a calendar rule, a webhook, or an email attachment (utilizing the Pull from Email Attachment step).
Are there any limits on scheduling?
Yes – the frequency of schedules depends on your Parabola plan. Plus plans can run daily schedules and Advanced can run as often as every 10 mins. Other schedules can be added, such as running flows hourly. Basic plans cannot use scheduled flows.
Are flows triggered by webhooks or the Pull from Email Attachment step counted toward my scheduled flows limit?
Yes, flows triggered by webhooks and the Pull from Email Attachment step are counted toward the scheduled flow limit.
What happens when I hit my usage limits on flows on a paid account?
If you reach your usage limits, your scheduled flows will continue to run and you'll continue to be able to run manual flows. To add additional flows, you'll either need to turn off other scheduled flows or upgrade your account!
What happens if I cancel my paid plan?
If you cancel your paid plan, you will remain on the plan until your billing cycle ends, at which point your plan will be canceled. If you cancel your account or downgrade, we'll credit your account with a prorated amount. When we will bill you each month, we'll use the balance on your account first before creating an additional charge.
What happens to my flows if I downgrade my plan?
You won’t lose access to your flows if you downgrade your account. If you have scheduled flows and your new plan doesn’t include scheduling, those flows will no longer run on the previously set schedule and will have to be run manually. Additionally, if you are using any integrations not available on your new plan, they will no longer work in your flow and have to be swapped out for different steps.
