Build a Subscription that Works for You

The Pollination ecosystem is designed to fit into your workflow, so flexibility is inherent in our pricing. Pay for only what you use!

Start with a Cloud Subscription

The Starter account gives you basic access to Pollination, but if you're looking for more resources, you may want to upgrade to a Professional or Organization account for a monthly fee.  

The professional account is perfect for firms and individuals who are just getting started with building performance simulation and use it in-house only. Firms who use performance simulation on every project, have multiple office locations, and collaborate with outside consultants will benefit the most from a multi-user Organization account.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ask Your Question on the Forum

Do you offer any special pricing or discounts?

We can consider special discounts for education, non-profits, and startups on a case-by-case basis. Please reach out to us at sales@pollination.cloud to discuss your needs.

Can I cancel, upgrade, or downgrade my subscription at anytime?

Yes! You can make changes to your subscription at anytime with no restrictions. However, once your subscription is canceled, upgraded, or downgraded, these changes take effect immediately. Our payment platform cannot support prorated or partial refunds for unused resources or time on your subscription. Check out our Terms and Services for additional details. 

What happens if I exceed the included quotas for CPU hours and storage?

The additional costs are calculated using a flat pay-as-you-go rate. The cost for additional CPU-hours is 0.72 USD per CPU hour, and for extra storage is 0.2 USD/month per GB of data.

Are the resources shared between the seats for an Organization account?

Yes. Pollination adds extra resources to the account after purchasing each seat. These resources are available to all the projects in the organization.

Do I need a paid Pollination account to buy a CAD license?

No. You can buy the CAD licenses with a free Starter Pollination account.

Can I try the CAD plugins for free?

Yes. You can always use the Grasshopper plugin free of charge. You can try the trial version of the Rhino and the Revit plugin for 14 days.

Are the license for the CAD plugins float licenses?

Yes. All the licenses for the CAD plugins are float licenses that are not locked to a specific user account or machine. Multiple users can share the same license, but not at the same time.
Additionally, the license pool administrator has the ability to manually deactivate licenses through the license manager in the administrator's subscriptions page.

How long can you work offline with a floating license?

You can use our plugin offline for only on hour. Unfortunately, our license management system does not support offline access for longer that at this time. You must be connected to the internet to use the CAD plugins.

How can an administrator remove a member of a license pool?

Removing a member from a license pool doesn't always automatically secure your license and data. In cases where a member may have left the company, we recommend using the "Regenerate License Pool" feature to expire all old license data.
