Pricing & Billing

Boost billing is based on a “per day” usage rate. This means that instead of paying a fixed price at the beginning of each month per location, that rate is converted into a daily rate and you are only charged for the days where Boost is active.

  • Example Breakdown: If your subscription is $60 USD a month per location, then your daily rate is calculated as follows:
    $60 / 30 days = $2/day
  • Example Scenario: Boost was active for 25 days in November (30 days)
    $60 / 30 days = $2/day
    $2 x 25 = $50 Boost Billing
