Screen Grab-Matterport New and Classic Pricing: Professional Plan (effective Thursday, 9 May 2019) Spreadsheet


Screen Grab-Matterport New Pricing: Professional Plan (effective Thursday, 9 May 2019) Spreadsheet


Screen Grab-Matterport New Pricing: Business Plan (effective Thursday, 9 May 2019) Spreadsheet


Screen Grab-(Matterport Classic Pricing for Matterport customers on or before Wednesday, 8 May 2019) - Grandfathered in (and/or can switch to Matterport New Pricing Spreadsheet

Hi All,

My spreadsheet – Matterport 2019 New Pricing versus Matterport Classic Pricing: Annual Hosting – may be helpful in deciding:

1. To stick with Matterport Classic Pricing
2. To switch to Matterport New Pricing
3. To add a Matterport New Pricing Plan (for processing and then transfer spaces to Classic Plan
4. Going forward, how to charge for Hosting, Support and Maintenance

Highlights


2. It's likely that the breakeven for charging for hosting is around 52 to $48 annually ($4 to $5 per month)
3. It's likely that at scale, the breakeven for charging for hosting is $29 to $33 annually ($2 to $3 per month)
4. Annual Matterport Service is $708 to $7,188 depending on which plan and if paid month-to-month or annually

Your thoughts? Or, have a different spread sheet or calculator to share?

Best,

Dan

looks like we really need a model that will allow us to use an array to calculate the processing costs on an estimated number of new scans. I will see what I can prepare!!

Yes! That would be great! Much appreciated.

Another way to look at it – Classic Matterport Customers that are paying more than $69 per month in extra processing – likely should add a Matterport New Professional plan to process and then transfer the spaces to their Classic plan.

I am still lost with all these numbers...
Is there a simpler way to say it ?

Maybe it's just me but ALL of this is very confusing.

May be we can help you think through what makes sense for you.

1. Do you have a classic Matterport Basic, Professional or business plan? (Annual or Monthly?)
2. How many models do you have now?
3. Of these models, how many need to be active?
4. How much is your overage per month for processing?

Best,

Dan

It has been Professional and I just went passed my 250 mark a few weeks ago.
I have 280 tours active and all need to stay active.
Overage... hard to say as business is so up and down here in the Mtns. but maybe an extra $60.00

Dan, I am killing time while sitting at the car dealership... can you confirm exactly how much the overages for hosting were on the old plans as I cannot find info on it now. Thanks Liam

1. If you have 280 tours active, it's likely that you are already on Business (not Professional). How much are you paying monthly or annually for Matterport hosting?
2. If I understand this, I likely can make a recommendation.

I have 500 models up and would like to get a thousand. They don't have a plan for that and aren't trying to come up with one. I have to sell 36 spaces for a client so I don't have to host them anymore. What would his price be for that? IS it going to be $50 or $30 a month for him?

@Skeeter

On the Matterport Classic Pricing (Old Pricing), you can continue to add models at $19 per "up to 50".

I am confused about:

Can you say that a different way?

I would not charge a Client at cost. I would always mark up typically three times:

1/3 = Cost of Goods Sold
1/3 = Overhead
1/3 = Profit

Dan

There’s an enterprise level with unlimited hosting. I think the price is negotiated and is based on your estimate of volume.

@DouglasMeyers

Okay. Got it.

You pay $999 annually for the Matterport Professional Plan to host up to 200 Matterport Spaces. Since you have 280 Space, you are presently paying an additional $19 for up to 50 Matterport Spaces = $38 additional a month for the extra 80 Spaces. And, may be $60 in some months for additional processing.

Recommendation

1. Keep your existing Matterport Professional Plan
2. Use up your 5 free processing per month
3. Here's where it gets price sensitive. If you think that you will pay an additional $69 per month in processing, then add a new Matterport Professional Plan to process the overage and transfer these models to your Classic Plan. Then decide if you want to keep or cancel the new Matterport Professional Plan (then repeat the decision the following month.)

My impression is that for the time being, best if you just pay the extra processing per month in your Classic Plan. Clear as mud?

@HarlanHambright

Anyone doing big numbers on any plan should have a conversation with Matterport Sales to see if they can offer better enterprise pricing.

Best,

Dan
