Payment and Pricing

Is my credit card information needed to sign up for GraphCMS?

No, sign up for the Developer plan is free, so all you need is your company email address, and a password of your choice.

What are the usage limits for each plan?

For free plans, there is a usage limit of 100.000 API Operations and 50 GB of Asset Traffic. Paid GraphCMS plans have a usage limit of 1.000.000 API Operations and 500 GB of Asset Traffic. If you are on a paid plan, it is possible to purchase an addition of 10.000 API Operations or 1 GB of Asset Traffic for 10 cents each. GraphCMS Enterprise plans come with large custom limits.

What are records?

Any single piece of content that is stored in GraphCMS counts as record, regardless if it contains one or 20 fields.

What are assets?

Assets are any files that are uploaded to GraphCMS (e.g. images, PDF files, or videos). They are stored in GraphCMS and served via a global content delivery network (CDN).

What if I need more content locales, users, or stages?

Feel free to reach out to our Sales Team if you have any specific questions regarding plan customization or upgrading! We are happy to work with you on a case by case basis to make sure your plan supports your needs.

How do I purchase more API Operations and Asset Traffic?
