Billing FAQs

Hevo follows a transparent and friendly pricing policy. It is our constant effort to ensure we reduce the expense for our customers.

To understand pricing on Hevo it is important to understand the following concepts:


Each record that is either updated or inserted in the database or data warehouse Destination is counted as one Event.

For example, in the case of a database Source, each row or document being inserted or updated in your database is replicated as one Event in the Destination.


A Source is a unique instance of an application from where you want to ingest your data. For example, Microsoft Azure MySQL, Google Cloud MySQL, Shopify, or Amplitude Analytics.

Please note that a Source is different from a Pipeline. You can create multiple Pipelines originating from the same Source.


A Destination is the data warehouse or a database where you want to move data through Pipelines.

Will I be charged for the Events consumed during the free trial once I purchase a subscription?

No, Hevo does not charge you for any Events consumed during your free trial. Even if you purchase a subscription plan during your free trial, it becomes active from the day your trial ends, and you are charged only for the purchased Events. If you do not purchase any subscription, the active Pipelines in your trial account are paused when the free trial ends and are subsequently deleted after 30 days.

I accidentally signed up for an annual plan instead of a monthly plan. Will I get a refund from Hevo?

Yes, in case of an accidental purchase, you can contact Hevo Support to convert your annual plan to a monthly plan. The price difference is added to your Hevo account as credit.

Can I pause billing for some time if there are no active Pipelines in my account?

Do the Events ingested by the Pipeline count towards my billing?
