Free Trial with Unused Sources

A Source that has not been used to create any Pipeline yet is referred to as an unused Source. As of Release 1.79, all unused Sources qualify for a free 14-day trial with unlimited Events usage. You can create unlimited Pipelines with one or more such Sources during the trial period for free. Any charges imposed by the Destination, however, would apply as usual.

You can filter the Sources eligible for a free trial by clicking on the Unused Sources category in the left navigation bar or the unused Sources link in the banner in the Select Source Type page.

Unused Sources

The unused Sources already under free trial are identifiable through the ONGOING TRIAL badge.

Events Usage for Free Trial Sources

Events loaded by the Pipelines created with Sources under free trial are not counted towards your monthly Events quota.


Free Trial Expiry Alerts

Hevo starts notifying you about the upcoming expiry of your Source trial seven days prior to the trial expiry date. You are also informed of the options available to you for continuing with your Pipelines.

Post-Free Trial Expiry

Once your 14-day free trial of an unused Source is over:

  • If you have subscribed to a paid plan: Hevo counts the Events loaded by the Pipeline from the 15th day onward towards your monthly Events quota consumption. If this causes your Events quota to exceed the plan limit, the Events are sidelined. You can either upgrade your plan at that time or purchase On-Demand Events to continue ingesting the data.
