What happens to the models I host if I quit my subscription to Matterport? Shawn_P 4 5 monthsCharlesHH (436): You can transfer one model to a new FREE account that your client must open. Then if they want to share it on a website or anywhere, they must upgrade the FREE account to a STARTER account and pay a monthly fee. Hope that is clear.
What happens to hosting if my company goes out of business? jpierce360 17 5 monthsWingman (2236): It is actually $9/month account. You cannot capture a Pro2 tour on it but you can transfer such a tour to this account. The was a similar question on WGAN recently and I posted a quote from Matterport when they say you can do it.

Long term HarlanHambright 5 6 monthsDanSmigrod (25875): @Wingman Yes. Thanks for sharing that. @HarlanHambright You may want to duplicate the space before transferring. However, spaces cannot be transferred OUT of a Free or Starter account. This is to prevent abuse by users uploading to a Free account and transferring out to avoid processing fees. If a Schematic Floor Plan or Matterpak Bundle was purchased for the space, those will need to be downloaded and sent to the new host separately ...

I could get the non-360 video to play as a Link (instead of an embedded link)nicely but no luck with the 360 video. I wasn't trying to use a 360 thumbnail. Thank you again for your comments.

Best Solution for Longterm Tour Hosting realeshots 4 1 yearbryanhscott (837): @realeshots I'm on the $9.95/mo plan that expired on Feb 29, 2020. When I get to the one-year mark, I will just change my subscription to their run-of-the-mill, public offering, which is found here: https://www.eyespy360.com/en-us/. Though the monthly price goes up and the quantity of included panos goes down, it could well be a better deal when considering long-term hosting. Certainly worth checking out before you get to the end of your...
big corporate clients lose their tours 036360 11 1 yearMeshImages (1462): No corporate client will host +100 tours with a single tour photographer. Its always a question of make or buy. And the next question is wether to throw good money after bad. Same for me. The way Matterport introduced their Matterport Scan Services heavily damaged my confidence. And I am asking myself wether I shall continue to invest into this system (and hosting fees) or try to replace it.
Does CBRE have a Matterport Enterprise hosting account? 036360 1 1 year036360 (34): Any MSP here know if CBRE (Coldwell Banker Richard Ellis) has their own Enterprise hosting account? Their local office doesn't know and am wanting to transfer scans to them.

Dumping Matterport need to host a few scans for existing clients. Bollingerphoto 3 1 yearHomePlanNZ (245): @Bollingerphoto The simple solution is to transfer the models to someone with a classic enterprise license, which costs about 1/10th of the newer active licensing cost to host. You'll be paying a dime, but not as many dimes. The down side is you need to transfer the models to their account, so you loose control over them - ensure there is T&Cs around it to retain your ownership. Though we haven't launched our 'Open Archive' service yet...

Hosting Fees based on the New Matterport Pricing Plans johnwheatley 9 1 yearGerhard (1281): @VTLV I agree with you. I don't understand this new pricing structure as it does not benefits me as a service provider at all. I have tours that I have to keep them active for a very long time, yes the client paid me a premium so it justifies hosting them for them. Who has the time to send out hundreds of invoices a month for coins for hosting its a waste of time, chasing clients for these payments? We need self-hosting option yesterday... ...

I have learnt all related to GSV features of Pano2VR in a day doing a tour with 330 panos. I have not touched their custom virtual tour features yet, however I have seen a lot of custom tours done with Pano2VR and some of them are truly fantastic. The only thing is you really want to have two monitors for Pano2VR. It is impossible to fit Google Maps window, your pano explorer...

Matterport Cloud Subscription: Approaching your hosting limit-$19 for up 50 DanSmigrod 7 2 yearsWingman (2236): How are they going to use it now if their new plans say unlimited processing and hosting? I am also wondering how they are going to move MSPs from $49/month plan to $69/month plan. I am on $49/month now. What if I do not want to move to the one that will cost me extra $20/month? :-)

Just hope i have not under priced the hosting so far .(At 10.00 for the year )That they will not want to pay higher monthly fees for hosting.Unless i lower the shooting fee.Nice thing is they cant make me re-shoot too much 1) they dont give much time before the move in to shoot 2) because once rented they have no acess

Need Host for my 7 Matterport scans Divya 5 3 yearsimmersivespaces (1202): @3dshowcaseuk I actually made that mistake. I loaded a bunch onto my iPad before deleting them from my account. It was fine until the iPad crashed one day and the models were lost. When I loaded the iPad backup, the models in the backup would not load. Unfortunately, Matteport simply refuses to address an adequate backup method for scans/models for users. It's a major shortcoming in their system.

Transferring ownership of a scan to a client Liam_Tayler 1 3 yearsLiam_Tayler (233): Hello, I read the post about transferring a scan to another hosting account, which seems straightforward, but (especially with the lite camera etc) Is it possible to transfer ownership of a single scan directly to a client and have them pay a low monthly fee? (the client wants to 'own' the scan (even though I know that Matterport always keep a copy). From what I can see, the lowest 'Cloud' account is a $49 USD, is that...

The dreaded long-term hosting question Scrantastic 8 3 yearschermle (4): I know you're looking for a contract. I can't help you there, but I do think it's advisable to specify time constraints. I was bidding on a job recently, and one of the terms the potential client wanted was "indefinite" hosting. I discussed a few options with him, all of which he declined. If he was the only client you got in a year, and I'm not saying that's your situation. client just cost you $600.00. Depending upon how the scan...

It doesn't cost you anything to push a button to have it active again, and so far it seems that Matterport has been holding off with their insane idea to charge for going over the hosting limits (MATTERPORT: Remove that from your plans and you will 100% sell more cameras!!!). Personally if it was me I'd let him use it again. He paid for it once and I'd want to keep...

WP3D Models leverages WordPress' ability to offer analytics for 'model' views that happen on your site.

In other words, you can add a model to your site (running WP3D Models), and then...
