Hi All,

Here are 11 reasons to switch to Matterport "new" pricing from Matterport "Classic" Pricing.

1. You have under 25 models that need to be live. Likely that you are new to Matterport.
2. You do a ton of processing over your limit: unlimited uploading and unlimited processing makes "cents" for you
3. You do often do very large spaces: unlimited uploading and unlimited processing makes "cents" for you
4. You do a ton of small spaces: unlimited uploading and unlimited processing makes "cents" for you
5. You are a real estate agent and never have the need for more than 25 spaces to be live at the same time
6. You get started with Matterport today (9 May 2019) or later (no choice)
7. You are testing Matterport with a 360º 1-click camera (1-5 Matterport spaces is enough for testing
8. You shoot hundreds or thousands of Matterport Spaces (and you negotiate a special rate with Sales)
9. You only use Matterport for the MatterPaks: you can archive all your spaces
10. You use Matterport publish to Google Street View: you archive your models
11. You use Matterport to create 2D floor plans and you archive your models

What are other reasons that you might switch to Matterport new pricing from Matterport classic pricing?

The new pricing only stays if the numbers work out for matterport, otherwise there will be soon a newer pricing.

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)

And then your number increases to 26 and you are paying over 2x as much for hosting 26 models as you would have before.

Because you are only using Matterport as a means to an ends -- ordering floorplans. If that's what you are doing, your scans are likely not very good data for Matterport and their '10 million spaces' goal -- just crap data that was good enough for a floorplan. Seems bad for Matterport.

Unlimited free processing - but if you're limited to 25 spaces, you still are going to run out.

But if you are limited to 25 or 50 spaces - you're going to run out of space for this 'ton of small spaces'...

Yeah, but the old plan was $49/mo for 100 spaces. As a Realtor, it's unlikely that you'll be scanning 3 different homes that you have listings for a month. If you do a 4th, it's the same price.

That's not a reason to switch.

For testing... and if the results are good, it's time to upgrade to the $69 plan that offers less value.

I've seen quotes - always annual. They are generally require that the MSP is REALLY shooting a LOT of spaces and the resulting discount is peanuts compared to the old classic plans.

There you go.

There are no reasons for this.

Matterport's talking heads are just double talking. The new prices are bad for everyone if grandfathering is terminated -- which it will be.
