Buy a Subscription

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

Buying a new subscription depends on whether you are on the hosted or self-hosted plan. For more details about how Baserow subscriptions work, view this documentation.

Please get in touch with a sales representative if you’re interested in our Enterprise plan.

Buy subscription for the SaaS Hosted version

On the SaaS offering on the baserow.io, you can purchase a subscription to upgrade from the Free plan to the Premium or Advanced plan. When the group is upgraded to a paid plan, all billable group members will have access to paid features.

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

  • Add members to the group first and then subscribe to a paid plan
  • Subscribe to a paid plan first then get charged every time a new billable user gets added to the group

To upgrade a group,

1. Sign in to https://baserow.io, click on the “Subscriptions” tab in the sidebar. If you have existing subscriptions, click on the “+ add new” button at the top-right of the page.

2. 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.

3. From your existing groups, select the group that you would like to get a subscription for. Within the modal, select a billing period and pricing plan. You can choose to be charged monthly or annually per billable user.

4. You will be required to enter your payment card information and authorise payment. In order to proceed with your payment, we may need you to authenticate with your bank.

5. Once your transaction has been completed, all billable users in the group will be upgraded to the plan. You will find your subscription on the overview page.

Inviting more billable users to the group will increase the price of your subscription later on. When a billable user accepts an invite, you have to pay the difference.

Likewise, the price will be reduced once the billable user is not a part of the group anymore.

Buy subscription for the Self-hosted Premium

On your self-hosted Baserow server, you can purchase a subscription to upgrade from the Open source (free) plan to the Premium plan. Contact sales to upgrade to the Enterprise plan.

To upgrade or downgrade the self-hosted plan’s seats as an existing self-hosting subscriber, visit the Baserow.io SaaS hosted version to make a change to the subscription.

To upgrade users to the Premium plan in the self-hosted version,

1. Sign in to https://baserow.io, click on the “Subscriptions” tab in the sidebar. If you have existing subscriptions, click on the “+ add new” button at the top-right of the page.

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

Subscriptions are priced per seat and you can choose to be charged monthly or annually.

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

6. Once your transaction has been completed. You will find your subscription on the overview page.

7. Once a self-hosted subscription is paid for, you will be able to download a license key that can be used to register your Baserow instance.

9. Register the license key to a Baserow instance.

8. Choose which registered users will be able to use paid features. After installing a licence, you must individually assign seats to users, including yourself, before access to premium features is granted.

  • A user who is in a group, who is in a “premium seat” has access to the premium features in the self-hosted version. Users assigned seats can then use paid features across all groups, while users that are not assigned to the license won’t be able to do so. Please refer to this documentation for more about who is considered a “user” for billing purposes.

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.
