How to Succeed with Matterport Classic Pricing (for Users and Matterport) DanSmigrod 10 3 hoursArchimedStudio (454): Let's all switch to GeoCV for the following reasons : 1/ give them the financial resources to continue and improve their product development (which is already awesome and almost on par with Matterport) 2/ allow them to hopefully lower their prices a bit 3/ allow them to fight their infringement case again Matterport Fool me once (.OBJ not free anymore), shame on you. Fool me twice (TOS changes), shame on you again. Fool me three times (New...
10 Things Matterport Should do for Matterport Service Providers (Please) DanSmigrod 11 6 hoursConvrts (37): Great points Dan, if Matterport were to go with these 10 points then yes I think it would mitigate a good deal of the concerns of MSPs, if only because it would restore some faith and trust that Matterport actually place some value in those of us who bought into this believing it was a partnership.... well thats what they called the program (you may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one!)
Is it time to band together 3D_Hoffa 11 8 hoursGarySnyder (1678): What you’re all discussing here goes back at least 3 years as a proven topic of discussion. It has always been MP’s game plan to go direct to any potential user. Be it a commercial real estate company, builder or any company which MP can see an opportunity to sale a camera to and generate ongoing revenue from. The question you may ask is how does MP go about doing this. It’s thanks to every one of you who have a camera as you are supplying...
Your matterport pricing theone05 7 1 dayCGPhoto (10): My plan in doing real estate is removing listing as soon as the homes sell. I am hoping to stay with the Professional Plus plan as this is the best value of the current offerings in terms of number of active models per dollar. At $1,316 per year for 50 slots, each slot costs me $26.32 in hosting fees per year. If someone wants to host a tour long term, I plan to charge $50 a year per tour to host it. Seeing that the other subscription options...
New to the Forum? Please introduce yourself DanSmigrod 620 1 dayCGPhoto (10): My name is Chris Geiger and I live and work in Fresno California. I have been doing commercial photography for more than 20 years now. Currently I do weddings (mostly in the fall) and real estate photography. I currently shoot about 300 homes a year. I am new to Matterport. I signed up for a free account to use with my Insta 360 one X camera that I already owned. I felt that I wanted to offer 3D tours to add to my video and stills and aerial...
New Matterport Pricing Starts May 9th [2019] VTLV 25 1 dayPeterMcCready (216): Matterport should be deeply concerned to hear a MSP contemplate this especially given the high cost of initial ownership that I know only too well from my Pro(1) and Pro2 purchases, it's definitely not an easy call to make. I've been out of the game personally now for six months (heritage was a very hard sell, the 'data trap' ecosystem made it harder as people rightly wanted to own their stuff!) although still managing hosting for colleagues...
Transcript: WGAN-TV Live at 5 Town Hall: Matterport New Pricing 16 May 2019 DanSmigrod 2 1 dayDanSmigrod (18285): [Continued from above] Leon Herbert: The key thing for me is simplicity. I want to buy a model I understand how your model works, and the different tiers in your models and the prices. But for me, I want to be able to bring a model in and take out, have it for one month or I want to have it for five years or whatever. I want to be able to change or update the model for that specific site. As time progresses on and obviously...
Matterport Executives to Listen/Take Your Questions on WGAN-TV Live at 5 DanSmigrod 20 3 daysDanSmigrod (18285): Hi All, I received this email from a WGAN Member today (morning after the show aired). What are your thoughts on the email below, after you watch the show? Dan --- Hi Dan, Thank you for getting the MP guys on a conference. It's a major win getting the MP guys to the table to take the questions. As an MSP I have few takeaways and ideas. 1. It seems obvious to me that MP's goal is to eliminate the MSP's ability to create...
To Matterport MSPs and Customers Jwbuckl 32 3 daysArchimedStudio (454): @leonvanzweel It's already the case now. 1 over 100, and you move to the 200 plan. 1 over 200, and you move to the 300 plan. But you have a great point for NOT wanting to pay a plan yearly! Your needs may change on a month to month basis. @DanSmigrod, I will try to be available to listen at 5pm (if I understand where to watch the live feed). I will not interact live, but might take notes that I will address after. My point has absolutely...
11 Reasons to Keep Matterport Classic (Old) Pricing DanSmigrod 1 3 daysDanSmigrod (18285): Hi All, Here are 10 reasons to keep Matterport "Classic" Pricing. instead of switching to Matterport "new" pricing. 1. You have more than 50 Matterport 3D tours that need to remain public for a long time 2. You want to continue to pay month-to-month 3. You typically pay less than $69 per month in overages for processing 4. You can always ADD Matterport New Pricing plan for unlimited processing and transfer spaces...

Question of the Day: New to Matterport? What do you think of new pricing? DanSmigrod 15 4 daysizoneguy (281): OK this is my first shoot with the Z1 - shot RAW and processed in lightroom. I probably over processed on a few shots. Not bad for a one-shot camera. [threesixty][/threesixty]

Question of the Day: Have you - or will you – change your hosting pricing? DanSmigrod 4 5 daysbryanhscott (19): Regarding the abrupt nature of Matterport's new price structure roll-out: For my part, I am new to this biz (Real Estate Media) and had not yet published my rate sheet. So, for me, no biggy - just add this new ingredient (pricing model) to the mix and stir. Not so easy for those in the business long enough to have amassed 10's or 100's of hosted spaces and gotten their clients used to certain costs resulting in mark-up and pass-through. Like...
Transcript: Matterport CEO RJ Pittman on Facebook Live Thursday-9 May 2019 DanSmigrod 7 6 daysGETMYVR (28): I'd like to add, I paid for a full year hosting on the basic plan December 2018 for $499 - yet somehow Matterport reverted my plan to monthly and I just got my 3rd erroneous, unexpected credit card charge for monthly today for $49 plus tax, this year. I am not sure what is going on, but its obvious the right hand does not know what the left hand is doing at Matterport billing.

Question of the Day: Keeping Matterport Classic? Switching to New? Both? DanSmigrod 4 7 daysShakoure (264): @jellofan... Loopholes like that tend not to last long with companies like this,assuming this works in the first place. But we'll see. Has anyone actually tried this?

What to do with your Matterport Portfolio VTLV 2 7 daysArtisticConcepts (622): @VTLV, I’m going to highly recommend before deleting or archiving ANYTHING, convert it to a MatterVid to keep forever! At only $14.99/tour, it not only gives you access to view the smoothest possible video of the highlight reel anytime, it also gives you the freedom to share it on YouTube, Instagram, LinkedIn, Vimeo, Facebook, or anywhere else you like! You will receive a download link for your MatterVid and the freedom to do whatever you...
11 Reasons to Switch to Matterport New Pricing from Classic ("Old") Pricing DanSmigrod 5 8 daysjellofan (25): Another possible reason to switch is if you have a Pro 2 Lite since on the classic plan you pay more for processing ($29 for a standard space and $58 for a large space)

How will Matterport competitors respond to new Matterport Pricing? DanSmigrod 13 9 daysmori (704): According to german and I assume also other european country laws, not providing localized legals (only marketing is translated) on the Matterport website is already somehow illegal. Berlin court has punched WhatsApp in 2016 for this: A German Court found that the general terms and conditions as well as the data privacy declaration of WhatsApp are without a German translation not transparent and therefore invalid under German law. ...

Question of the Day: What do you think of the new Matterport Pricing? DanSmigrod 9 9 daysWingman (279): I do not know if I am happy with new prices or not. From one point hosting some limited amount is not an issue now. And there is no extra fee to go over included in a plan amount for processing. However the number of active models that is included is just ridiculous. It is may be ok for property type of work but how it lines up with doing matterport for business? And on top of that I have to pay $20 USD more for my subscription.
This MSP is Buying a Pro2 Camera Today: How I Answered His Questions DanSmigrod 4 10 daysfoxwrth13 (46): As long as they keep allowing the overages on the classic plans I have no problem paying for the new plan in addition to the old one. Would have liked a few more collaborator accounts but ya can't have everything. I think what has MSPs the most worried is the uncertainty of whatever business model they are using will still be viable in the future.
Deleting Models vs. Making Private Queen_City_3D 4 10 daysArchimedStudio (454): Wow, that's a lot of models you keep alive! Are you sure you're not getting killed by monthly fees with these numbers? I can confirm that in order to keep the hosted count under the threshold (100 for me), I have to delete the Spaces as soon as the property is out of the market. The commercial spaces are/were always an issue because they are there long term. That being said, I think commercial spaces are even worst with the new plans:...

New Matterport Cloud Pricing Explained; Existing Users Grandfathered In DanSmigrod 12 10 daysangusnorriss (392): I agree with @jfantin - it’s a big price jump for the MSP who handles approx 100 live models across a range of industry genres. This price model drives high churn of live models and only boosts archives. I guess this means the same property is scanned several times. How many MSPs have scanned the same property twice? I don’t mean published twice due to errors but actually scanned a house, restaurant, office, public space, then gone...

Matterport Archiving Does Not Address Restore to iPad DanSmigrod 4 11 daysDanSmigrod (18285): @rzphotoman Also, archiving does not let you restore to iPad.

360 cameras with Matterport? CFster 4 1 dayCGPhoto (10): I used my Insta 360 One X camera for a month and did about 10 home scans with it before getting my Pro 2 Camera. Below is a tour with the Insta 360 camera. It's not as clear as the Matterport cameras. Much more grain in the image and much less detail when you zoom in. I found that I needed to have my scan positions closer together. When passing through doorways, I could only move the camera about 12" - 18" between scans. I also had to...

How do you build a highlight reel in New Matterport Workshop? Queen_City_3D 5 1 daycswartz (67): Well, I am also feeling a little stupid and I also provide highlight reels for all of my tours. I previously chose the photos (that already exist with labels) and dragged them into the highlight reel I could rearrange, add, delete, etc but now I can't, or at least not smart enough to do so. I am also weary of the pending removal of the legacy workshop. So unless I am missing something, I now have to capture the images I want, label them...
