FAQ: Overages & Limits

Beginning on February 1st, 2018, customers who exceed the hosting limit as specified in their cloud plan will be billed for hosting overages.

If you are currently under your hosting limit (see plans on buy.matterport.com), you have nothing to worry about.

If your account has more Spaces than the hosting limit (or if you are near the limit), then we are notifying you in advance of this change on February 1st, 2018 to give you time to plan for the change on your end. This change will only affect future account overages starting from February 1st, 2018. Previous overages will not be charged.

 

How do I know what my hosting limit is?

Open buy.matterport.com/user and log in. Remember, your login information for buy.matterport.com may be different from my.matterport.com.

You will see which plan you are currently in. Based on your current plan, the hosting limit is as follows:

  • Basic — 100 Spaces
  • Professional — 200 Spaces
  • Business — 300 Spaces

 

How do I know if I am close to my hosting limit or if I am exceeding my limit?

Open account settings on Matterport Cloud (my.matterport.com). You must be logged in as an Admin for your organization. From here you can see how many spaces you have now and what is the maximum limit for your plan.

If you are over the limit, the bar will appear in red.

If you are nearing the limit, the bar will appear in orange.

You will also receive regular emails from Matterport Cloud (my.matterport.com) saying you are near or over the limit.

What can I do if I am over the hosting limit?

If you go over the hosting limit, you have three options:

1) Pay the overage fee

You can accept the overage fee of $19. This flat fee will let you host 50 additional Matterport Spaces on your account. This is a recurring fee that you will incur for every month that you are over the limit. This fee is $19 for every month you are over, regardless of whether you are on a monthly or annual plan.

If you do nothing, you will be charged the overage fee.

 

2) Upgrade to a higher hosting plan

A higher hosting plan may be more appropriate for you. First, open buy.matterport.com/user and login. Next, under Subscription Plan choose Change.

Choose a plan that is right for you and confirm.

 

You can also delete Matterport Spaces to return below the limit. We suggest you delete spaces that are reuploads or duplicates, have very few views, or are small test models (1 or 2 scan positions).

 

What if I cross my hosting limit in the middle of the month?

Crossing the limit in the middle of the month is fine as long as you return below the limit before the next billing cycle. If not, you will be charged the flat fee of $19.

Billing for Matterport happens on the first calendar day of the month on 00:00 UTC time. We charge you for hosting for this month, plus any a-la-carte fees for the previous month. Read more about how Matterport determines your bill. An overage hosting fee is an a-la-carte item determined by how many spaces in our account on the first day of the month.

Consider an example: You are on the Basic plan. On February 15th you have 99 spaces. On February 16th you upload a new space, and then on February 17th another one to bring you up to 101 total spaces. You have no activity for the rest of the month. On March 1st, you will be charged an overage fee.

Consider another example: You are on the Basic plan. On February 14th you have 98 spaces. On February 21st you upload four new spaces to go to 102 total. On February 27th, you delete five spaces to go back to 97 spaces. On March 1st, you will not be charged a fee.
