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. Read more about how Sources are counted for Billing.


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