1. Pricing Introduction
If you want to create unlimited items in your workspace, we'd be honoured to have you upgrade to a paid subscription with us! You can choose between our monthly or annual subscription plans:
Monthly subscription: $12 / month / editor
Save with an Annual subscription: $120 / year / editor (that's 2 months free).
As a bootstrapped business we are grateful to each and every one of our customers who purchase a subscription and use our app. And we are especially grateful for those who join us on the journey for a whole year. We promise to ship lots of product improvements along the way!
A subscription is tied to a workspace (not a user account or email address). You can upgrade to a paid subscription for a Personal workspace for 1 person or an Organization workspace where you can invite others and collaborate together in real-time.
Viewer role: In addition to editors, in Organization workspaces you can add Viewers free of cost who can view and comment on boards.
2. Pricing for Personal workspace vs. Organization workspace
Understanding Whimsical Workspaces
When you first sign up for Whimsical, you'll see you have a Personal workspace. This allows you to work independently. You can still share a link to your folder or file with a colleague or friend, but you won't be able to collaborate together in real-time - for that you'll need an Organization workspace.
The main difference between Organization workspaces and Personal workspaces is the ability to collaborate the same boards in real time and to organize those boards in shared folders that everyone has access to. If you have more questions about this as you're figuring out the right plan for you and your team, email us and we're happy to talk it through.
Navigating between Whimsical Workspaces
You can switch back and forth between workspaces using the drop-down menu in the upper left of your workspace by clicking on its name (Personal workspaces are always called Personal):
If you have already paid for a Whimsical subscription, but keep seeing a message that says you need to upgrade, check to make sure you're in the correct workspace.
Paying per editor in an Organization workspace
If you create an Organization workspace and upgrade to a paid subscription, you will only be charged for all the editors in the workspace.
This article about billing in Organization Workspaces goes in depth about how adding and removing editors over the course of subscription impacts your bill. Our values have helped us craft a fair billing system where we offer prorated credits if you remove an editor during the course of your subscription period.
We gladly offer a 20% discount to non-profit organizations, whereas teachers and students can enjoy Whimsical free of charge with our education plan. To apply for the education discount, please fill out this form.
