Introducing New Plans and Pricing

We’re evolving our pricing model to align better with how Gliders create custom software for their needs




Introducing New Plans and Pricing

Glide is on a mission to put the power, beauty, and magic of software development in the hands of a billion new creators. We started our journey five years ago; since then, over a million teams have built custom apps using Glide. In that time, the needs of our customers have evolved.

We’ve thought about what that evolution means and absorbed the generous feedback we’ve been given. The needs our customers have communicated to us have guided this process. The result is a pricing model and plans that better reflect how users become successful with Glide:

Our new plans are tailored for the different types of individuals and teams using Glide, the specific kinds of software they want to build, and who they intend to build that software for. We've also heard your requests and added annual plans at 20% off. 

If you're an existing Glide customer, your current plan is staying the same. Your account will now be considered a legacy plan. If you choose to upgrade or downgrade, you'll be switched over to our new pricing model.

Let's take a look at each plan.

Free plan

The best way to grasp the power of Glide is to try it for yourself. Our Free plan shows you how much you can do in Glide without depending on external services, and it continues to be the easiest way to learn no code software development. Explore at your own pace, whether you need a day, a weekend, or a few months to learn Glide. 

We believe in learning to build software freely. Glide has always and always will have a free plan.

You can build an unlimited number of apps within your Glide dashboard, and you can publish one app at a time to share with others. Your Free published app can be shared within your company or group with up to ten personal users. You can manage your app’s data in Glide Tables, where we’ve removed Update costs for Free users, and your apps can use the same number of rows as our paid Maker & Team plans.

Maker plan

To the tens of thousands of no code enthusiasts, educators, community builders, and entrepreneurs who make up the Glide community: the new Maker plan is for you.

We’ve created a plan catered to how you’re using Glide today. Since your app is more likely to be shared broadly, this plan includes an unlimited number of personal users (those with personal or educational email addresses). You’ll have access to Google Sheets since our data indicates that is the most widely used data source for makers.

We’ve also given you access to the power of Glide AI to enhance your app and the ability to white label it with your own logo, domain, and brand identity.

Team plan

To those using spreadsheets to run their businesses, processes, and workflows: the Team plan is for you. With this plan, you can build all the business apps you need on top of your existing spreadsheet data. 

The Team plan helps you build multiple Glide apps alongside your colleagues, where apps share common data sources and integrations. With the Team plan, you gain access to:

  • Multiple editors and unlimited apps

  • 20 app users that you can scale as needed

  • Syncing with external data sources like Excel, Airtable, and Google Sheets

  • Custom branding so users can log into your company’s branded software

  • Glide API to integrate with external tools

  • Dedicated support from the Glide team

Start the Team Plan

Business plan

You need more power to create interconnected systems of software that can power your entire organization. Our new Business plan caters to organizations that need to build custom solutions on top of their existing databases. If you need more scale, scope, and support for building company-wide apps, Business is for you.

The new Business plan gives you additional capabilities such as:

  • Read-write data in Postgres, MySQL, Cloud SQL, and Microsft SQL Server

  • Read-only custom queries for SQL data sources and BigQuery

  • Glide Big Tables to extend your data with large-scale datasets

  • Glide Advanced API for fetching and querying data in Glide Tables and Big Tables

  • Sending and receiving data from external services via Call API

  • Personalized onboarding for you and your team with annual plans

  • The ability to add SSO to your apps for an additional fee

Try the Business plan with a 14-day free trial.

Enterprise plan

Larger teams and organizations usually have unique sets of requirements. Enterprise exists for those of you with specific cases that need a customized approach to fit your business. If you have stringent procurement requirements, in-depth security reviews, high-scale business needs, such as customer portals that require 100+ users, or other specific use cases, contact our team so we can create a plan that fits you perfectly.

A plan for everyone

We realigned our plans to make sure there is an option for everyone. 2023 was our Year of Power, and we focused on adding highly-requested features, increased capabilities, and more data scope to Glide and the apps you build with it. This project will continue as our platform and our community grow.

Thank you to all of our Glide customers for being with us on this journey. You’ll be able to stay on your existing plans. If you have any questions, this Community thread will have more information. Your innovation using Glide and the capabilities you’ve requested have helped our platform develop. As we grow Glide’s capabilities, we will continue adding features, building the power of your apps, and optimizing our approach for the success of our platform and your ventures. We hope you’re as excited as we are to see what comes next and what you will build with it.
