Latest updates to Glide’s plans and pricing ✨

I can’t speak about the original intent/ethos behind Glide because I wasn’t here. But the website advertises client portals as use cases and that is what I’m using it for. I selected a subscription to utilize all the features that the plan included and I molded the app to work with those features.

I understand raising prices, I understand things evolve, and I don’t disagree with you at all. I just don’t love having my budget in the air without any sense of assurance on what I will pay in a month. I run my business with a predictable budget to avoid surprises. But then again, it’s clear that I’m no longer Glides target audience.

  • Softr - just isn’t there in terms of product imo.

Ehhh, with an AirTable subscription it gets the job done (for a client portal), and includes Stripe integration to help make up the cost. But yes, there isn’t a catch all solution and Glide does allow more creativity.

Yes, Glide is valuable to me at the moment. But if I’m hypothetically selling a product for $20, and 15% of the budget goes just so each individual client can log in to the app to check on their order status then the value is quickly diminished. It’s just numbers, the same way I’m a number to Glide. The only reason I write my concerns here because perhaps the team will consider the reality of this use case and offer a plan that tackles this while also being profitable to them.

Good news! Literally 6 hours ago, Glide announced an improved integration with Zapier, which gets me what I need! (The ability to add / edit rows in Glide Tables).

For context, this is the video I was going off of (@grumo):

Grumo uses the Glide Tables API to integrate data from Stripe to confirm a payment has been received, but with Zapier now able to update Glide tables, that step is actually much simpler directly from the Zapier UI!

Andy - no-coders like me are very happy making API calls. My automation platform of choice is ActivePieces, for example. I don’t need or expect Glide to build native modules for any of these platforms.

Build your Make and Zapier integrations for sure, but why not open the API for those no-coders like me whose jaw doesn’t drop when they see a JSON payload?

If you’re planning to make your API available via Make and Zapier, it literally costs you NOTHING to make Glide API available on any paid plan.

Give us options and let us figure out what’s best for us :slight_smile:

Yeah - I saw that too. That’s great. I’ve been using Make, but I’m gonna take a deeper look at Zapier again now.

Glad this is helpful for you - that’s great.

Just catching up with the recent (20th March) update to the pricing. Thank you @NoCodeAndy and the Glide Team for listening to the feedback. The updates to the Business Plan are awesome. 40 Users, up to 10 Million records via BT and unlimited CRUD updates when using Glide Tables for approx £245 a month (paid monthly) represents excellent value to me :slight_smile: Plus £5 per month for additional users :tada:

@NoCodeAndy Do you see any chance where we could pay for public users in the Team subscription or pay for private users in the Maker subscription? My app is for small businesses to use with their customers so maker is perfect except some people use their business emails with these small businesses so they aren’t able to sign up for the app. Just trying to figure out the best way to proceed.

It’s not something that we’re looking at right now, but nothing is off the table. :slight_smile:

Ideas like this are brought to the team for discussion, the same as any customer feedback we get through other channels, like support tickets or sales calls.

Good to hear!

The Zapier and Make integrations unlock a lot of capabilities to do things that might otherwise be out of scope for native Glide features.

Glide is a great tool, but unfortunately becoming less and less accessible (financially) to “little ones”
I have been a Legacy user free since October 2022.
I created an app that allows my partner who is self-employed to manage her appointments (trigger Google calendar), her clients and her payments, then everything is sent to Google Sheet where an automatic accounting system does it for her. compatibility. Everything starts with glide and it works perfectly. I also have a second app for task tracking and equipment management for an association (5 users).

The fact that the cheapest plan with the basic options that I find (google sheet sync) is now $99 (much too expensive for so few users), and the announced end of free legacy accounts will make these two app on which I spent a lot of time unusable for me.

A very small paid package for single users or a small number, while keeping certain options that were previously available (sheet sync, trigger zap or google calendar sync…) would allow you to keep/gain small customers like me…

You may have missed the Maker plan. $49, unlimited users, and google sheet connectivity.

Thanks, I hadn’t seen it. unfortunately it remains too expensive for my use. the free plan could be enough but the loss of sync with Google Sheet means that my application will become non-functional. too bad :frowning:

You could rebuild it with Glide Tables. This will surely take some time, but given the unlimited updates and 25k row limit on the new Free plan, the app could be even more capable that your current version.

thank you yes that’s what I’m going to do for the app for my association, but for my partner’s app it won’t be possible because the app uses triggers (make and zappier) to interact with Google Calendar and Google Docs, and above all the Google Sheet spreadsheet is used by another application to automatically manage accounting, editing and sending invoices, etc. in real time.

With the free plan I could consider doing a manual export of the data at the end of the month but for Google Calendar (which is essential) the free plan will not work.
It doesn’t matter, I would look for another solution. Too bad that like appsheet (and I prefer glide 100 times :)) there is not a mini package for $5

Another option for me would be to share the application with other people to finance the $50 package.

Glide remains a great system but the free formulas are unfortunately too limited especially since we don’t know if other options will not be removed in the future…

Can anyone help me to answer this please!

Referencing the below


Changes to Team plans include all features in Maker, plus:

  • Reduced pricing for additional users: $4 (monthly) or $3 (annual)
  • 30-day free trial, only available via the billing page

Does this mean that similarly to the maker plan, it enables unlimited PERSONAL users, and the 20-user quota + $4/3 per additional user is only used by users who are NOT using a personal email address?

I have plans to build an app for an existing paid community and migrating 200+ users to glide. 95% of them are using a personal address, and 5% use a business address. Am I correct in assuming that, if the above is correct, the 95% of personal users will be covered under the maker plan, and 5% of non-personal would contribute to the 20users + $4/3 per addiotnal user of the team plan?

Any guidance much appreciated. Thanks

No, unlimited personal users is only available with the Maker plan.

When it comes to Team/Business/Enterprise, users are users. There is no distinction made between personal and non-personal users.

Okay thank you for clarifying Darren!

Just catching up with this. I upgraded from the old $25 p/month plan to the $125 p/month plan a few months ago - partly to check it out. Just looked to see if I can downgrade - and I see that Airtable is not supported on the new “Maker” plan.

Ouch Should have paid more attention. I use Airtable for all my ‘backends’. Find it much easier to work that way, and like keeping my data separate from the front end.

When I was ready to “upgrade” my main app, I was concerned about losing the old plan so instead I created a new plan and moved the old app into it, knowing that I still had access to my old plan until I was ready to let it go. I still haven’t let it go and am using it for some other legacy stuff with more users than I want to pay for in the “new” system.

@kabookie - Clever! I’ve done the same with other platforms where newer versions (like major point releases) aren’t compatible with older builds.

It’s not a great long-term solution, but it covers the in-between period.

Eventually the client needs to either rework the build or we start again from scratch.
