πŸš€ Introducing Boosts β€” power-up all of your free apps!

Hello David,
I am a bit late to the party :slight_smile: I come back from holidays and just noticed your pricing changes.
I think it goes in the right direction, especially changes that impact for several apps as I plan to use glide more and more.
However, I have a slight problem : I sold 2 apps that do not need a lot of rows but can requier around 200 to 400 editing a day (each) because the way my app is done (a lot of google script to copy data back and forth with other sources).
I do not charge anyting other than setup costs for this app (the google sheet maintenance is covered by another project). Being without reccuring fees was a strong selling point Vs the competition, so I was quite happy with the former pricing.
I can adjust my prices for future custommers, but can you do something for the 2 existing ones ?

regards
Bruno

I just signed up to add 1000 edits. I need some calcifications please

  1. I assume that this will start immediately and will be renewed automatically until I turn the option off, is this correct.

  2. do the counts renew monthly at the first of the month or from when I originally purchased (in my case the 17th of the month).

  3. it is not real clear if each app gets the boost or if this is a sum across all free apps.

BTW what would be really cool would be able to purchase bigger boosts or multiple boosts of the same type. Eg. purchase 2 boosts of 1000 edits.

  1. Your quota is immediately raised to 2k per month.
  2. The counts reset at the beginning of each month.
  3. All of your free apps have their quota increased to 2k/month.

Hello guys I bought a boost of over 500 rows, what is happening is that all the data in the spreadsheet / database from 501 onwards the application simply does not read…

OlΓ‘ eu comprei um boost de mais 500 rows, o que estΓ‘ a acontecer Γ© que todos os dados da planilha/base de dados apartir do 501 a aplicação simplesmente nΓ£o lΓͺ.

Hi David,

SO I probably do not need the edit boost from from Sept. onwards. So today I turned them off so I will not be billed for Sept. Immediately the edits went back to 1000. So I was not sure that that would work out as I still need them for the rest of Aug so I turned them back on. How do I need to do this?

To answer my own question. When I turned it off I got back a credit for my unused portion. And when I turned it back on it billed me another 10.00. And the billing shows that the time period is not monthly but from when you turn the boost on. Perfect!

It should actually only charge you a pro-rated amount. In your case, if the boost was the only thing on your subscription, you may have started a new subscription when you re-activated the boost.

Exactly right.

Well I am a little concerned this morning. My app is showing 1952/2000 edits. I thought they were going to reset back to zero at the beginning of the month. I have about a day left figure out how to keep the edits working. I have not got an idea of what to do now,

It is still the beginning of the month. They will reset soon. Keep in mind that timezones make the beginning of the month relative.

Yes, we’ve removed boosts for now, for those who didn’t buy them yet.

Aw…it was a great addition for teachers who were looking to simply increase rows across all their classroom apps to handle their rosters of students.

We disabled them because very few people were buying them.

Hi David, sorry to be off topic a bit but I can’t miss this opportunity while you are here.

Is it possible to allow us to purchase custom domain. That means instead of adding rows for a pro App, I just want to be able to buy custom domain at a reduced price than the current pro price. This helps with promoting my Apps so that my clients are not aware that it’s so EASY with glide that way I lose them. I know that it may not align with glide’s vision making more people to be makers but it will also help to get more makers like myself to go pro and sell most of the App that are in staging currently. Branding is very important for me more than additional rows especially for my MVPs.

@Luther There is no plan to offer just the branding and custom domain features of our Pro tier at a reduced price. Please buy Pro.
