How much does Wappsto Cost?
To make Wappsto as accessible as possible, it was important for us to make Wappsto free for the majority of users.
We’ve strived to make our pricing structure as simple as possible. All that counts is the monthly amount of data used. For developers, published wapps, (paid or unpaid) will offset development costs (measured in data traffic) in a scheme soon to be announced.
Remember that the things and services that you connect already have their own cloud operations, which means that if you have an IP camera you want to connect, for example, you don’t have to worry about the huge transference of data. That heavy lifting is done by their service. All that counts for Wappsto is the traffic generated by the communication between that service and Wappsto.
Pricing Elements in an IoT Solution
Product manufacturers know that a new product launch involves a series of well-know costs than
need to be reclaimed in product sales. But making a connected product entails a series of new
uncertain costs. We remove that uncertainty for you with our clear pricing, both in developing
and operating your connected product.
1) Development Costs
Development costs are a one-time cost for helping our customers transform their conventional
products to connected products. Because of our extensive experience, we're able to give you a
fixed project price and fixed hourly rate. Typically, we can get a proof-of-concept up in one
day and a prototype ready in a couple of weeks. Development and certification, in close
colaboration with your team, typically lasts 4-6 months. Finally, the testing stages, including
end-of-line testing, may last from 2-4 months. Our extensive knowledge will get your robust,
market-ready product developed on-time and on-buddget.
Although one of Seluxit's strenghts is being able to deliver the entire IoT solution, we
nevertheless oftentimes work with partners to develop solutions. The core backend system, the
Seluxit IoT Platform, is in fact built with collaboration in mind. Partnerships for development
can be at the level of device development, as well as backend and frontend application
2) Operational Costs
When you sell a conventional product, you need to cover warranties and support. With connected
products, you have a new layer of costs — the operation of your product's software.
Companies sometimes even need to reconsider how they charge for their products. Regardless, you
need to know how much operations will cost and be able to afford it for your connected product
to be a sound business proposition.
Seluxit has a simple and sane answer: pricing for the Seluxit IoT Platform operation is based on
traffic. All that counts is the monthly amount of data used.
Because the Seluxit IoT Platform pricing structure is so simple, it does not need to
discriminate between individual or corporate users. This means that individual hobbyists as
well as startups, and any sized company developing IoT products can expect free service because
of the low data quantities of individual product development.
