Buy a Subscription

You will need to buy a Baserow subscription to upgrade users to the premium plan. To buy a Baserow subscription you will need a baserow.io account, even if the subscription is intended for self-hosted Baserow instances.

Where and how to buy a subscription

Buying a new subscription depends on whether you are on the hosted or self-hosted plan. To buy a subscription, log into your Baserow account and click on the “Subscriptions” tab in the sidebar.

Within the subscriptions page, the list of groups within the SaaS (hosted cloud version) will be displayed on the left-hand side of the screen. Choose this option if you set up your Baserow database using the hosted version, where your database is hosted for you at https://baserow.io.

The right side of the screen will hold the Self-hosted version. Choose this option if you have installed Baserow on your own server.

Buy a subscription for the Hosted version

If hosting using Baserow.io, you buy premium for all of the members in your group at once. All group users will have access to paid features.

There are two ways to buy a subscription for the hosted version:

  1. Add members to the group first and then subscribe to a paid plan
  2. Subscribe to a paid plan first then get charged every time a new user gets added in the group

To buy a new subscription, select the group that you would like to get a subscription for from your existing groups within the SaaS (hosted cloud version).

All the members of a group will be upgraded to another plan. Inviting more collaborators to the group will increase the price of your subscription later on as all members of the group must be premium. When the collaborator accepts the invite is accepted, you have to pay the difference. Likewise, the price will be reduced once the user is not a part of the group anymore.

Buy a subscription for the Self-hosted version

If you want a user signed up to your self-hosted Baserow to be able to see or leave row comments, they would need to be given a paid premium seat.

A user who is in a group, who is in a “premium seat” has access to the premium features in the self-hosted version, including

  • Row coloring
  • Row comments
  • Kanban view
  • JSON and XML export
  • Admin functionality

Self-hosters buy seats and so can assign a seat to any user, irrespective of the group they are using. To upgrade users to the premium plan in the self-hosted version, we need your instance ID to get started because the license will be connected to it.

On the Subscriptions page, enter your instance ID in the field provides and click “Next

You will be required to enter your payment card information and authorise payment. The price will be prorated when the number of seats changes. In order to proceed with your payment, we may need you to authenticate with your bank.

You can have a mix of premium and free users when buying premium for a self-hosted installation. After you choose which specific users get a premium seat, the rest of the users in your self-hosted Baserow are then considered free users. Free users can still edit, create, delete etc, but cannot use or see any of the premium features. You can re-assign premium seats to different users at any time.
