Find the best fit

Pricing is based on the number of spaces and users you need, plus a platform fee. We can help your organization choose the best setup for your project and budget.

What’s a space?

Spaces host the content powering your apps, websites and digital products. They're where your team stores assets, defines their storage structure, and authors new entries. You can map spaces to a team, a project, or a category within a larger collection of content.

Spaces

Digital teams collaborate in spaces to power the content of their digital products. Combine multiple spaces to enable projects and teams of different sizes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Need answers? We got 'em.

What is Contentful Web App?

This is the web application, or the user interface, where editors can manually create, edit and manage their content.

How do you define a user?

We mean the users of the Contentful Web App. Every user (every writer, editor, developer and so on) would have an individual account which they would use the app with.

What is a record?

A record is an umbrella term for entries and assets. A space that has one entry and one image has two records. Each entry and asset are counted as a single record, regardless of how many times they are re-used within the space.

What is an API call?

An API call is a request to one of the Contentful APIs, which include content management API (CMA), content delivery API (CDA), or content preview API (CPA).

What is a locale?

It's a way to translate your default content into different languages or localize it for different countries. You can define the languages that your space should support by using ISO locale codes like en-US or de-DE. Each entry field is localized individually, plus we enable you to provide localized versions of your media assets. Please note that the number of locales varies by the space type.

What are roles?

In Contentful, roles allow you to assign individual groups of users a different level of access to content. For example, you might want grant publishing and deleting rights only to your editor, but not to writers and translators (see the guide for more information). The more roles you define, the more sophisticated workflows your organization can follow. With the standard space types, you can choose from a list of pre-defined roles, while enterprise customers are free to define custom roles.

What do these roles — Admin, Developer, Editor, Author, Freelancer and Translator — mean?

  • Admin. Can do everything, including work with entries, create and update content types, configure space settings and work with API keys
  • Editor. Can work with entries, does not have access to content types, API keys or space settings
  • Author. Can do everything an editor can do except for deleting, (un)publishing, (un)archiving entries
  • Freelancer. Can work only with their own entries, can't see the content of other people, can't (un)publish, (un)archive their own entries
  • Translator. Can only work in the assigned language, can't create, delete, (un)publish, (un)archive any entries

What is onboarding support?

Your customer success manager will get on a call with you to guide you through the product and help you set up your space.

What is an SLA?

Service Level Agreements (SLAs) are legally binding performance criteria our service adheres to. The criteria include guaranteed uptime and response time and vary by the SLA type. Automated service monitoring, on-call teams, and risk mitigation procedures underpinning our SLA commitments form an integral part of the enterprise product offering. As a result customers can only purchase SLAs as a part of an enterprise agreement. Customers using our on-demand service do so without any performance guarantees. Please note that all enterprise agreements require an SLA.

What is a dedicated infrastructure?

Our on-demand customers are hosted on a shared infrastructure cluster, subject to standard API rate limits. Though unlikely, it is conceivable that the actions of some users may impact the experience of others, especially on the Content Management API layer. Enterprise customers are hosted on low-density or dedicated infrastructure, highly reducing or totally eliminating this risk of an outage due to the actions of other Contentful customers.

What happens when I purchase a paid space type or add more than 10 users?

If you purchase a paid space type, you will be charged a monthly fee at the beginning of a month. The price of the space varies by space type. You will have to pay a monthly fee for each user on top of the 10 free users included in the use of Contentful. You can have as many paid spaces and users as you need.

What type of spaces can I have?

Customers on the Basic tier can choose from the following space types:

Space type Master envs Sandbox envs Roles Locales Content types Records Price
Micro space 1 1 Admin 2 24 5,000 $39/month
Small space 1 2 Admin, editor 4 24 10,000 $189/month
Medium space 1 3 Admin, editor 7 48 25,000 $489/month
Large space 1 5 Admin, editor, author, translator 10 48 50,000 $879/month

Customers on the Committed tier can choose from all the standard space types, shown above, and performance space types. You can see the list of space types available to your organization by logging into the web app.

Please note that on-demand customers are limited to 20 spaces in their organization, while enterprise customers can have an unlimited number of spaces.

What payment methods do you accept?

On-demand customers can pay for the subscription with American Express, MasterCard, and Visa credit cards. Enterprise customers have an option of paying with a wire transfer.

Do I have to sign a long-term contract?

No, on-demand subscriptions are offered on a month-to-month, cancel-anytime basis. Enterprise customers who wish to access premium features and benefit from special services require a long-term contract. Please reach out to our sales team to discuss your needs and available options.

How and when can I change the space type I initially purchased?

You can freely move from one space type to another. When upgrading to a higher space type or downgrading to a lower space type, your changes become effective immediately and your monthly bill is adjusted to reflect the new price. Customers moving to a more expensive space type will be charged the difference, customers moving to a less expensive type will be prorated at the end of the current monthly period.

Please note that to downgrade to a lower space type, your space must fit within the limits of the new space type. On some occasions this might require deleting excessive environments, records, content types, locales or roles. Talk to us if you have additional questions.

What happens when I hit my space limits?

Once you achieve the limit of environments, roles, locales, content types or records included in the space type, you will not be able to create another item. If you need to create more items, you can delete an existing item or upgrade to a space type with higher limits. Space admins can upgrade/downgrade a space to a different type directly in the web app.

Spaces also include fair use limits for API calls and asset bandwidth. If you exceed those limits and have a valid credit card on record, you will be charged an overages fee for the excess amount. Extra API calls cost $5 per 1,000,000 calls, extra asset bandwidth $65 per 1 TB. Accouts without a valid credit card on record, will be throttled once they exceed the fair use limits.

Can I cancel my account at any time?

Yes, on-demand customers can cancel their accounts at any time, directly in the web app. Your cancelation becomes effective at the end of the current billing period. For example, if your subscription started at March 15 and you cancelled at April 1, you will be able to use Contentful until April 14. The terms and conditions for enterprise customers on committed contracts are stipulated in the terms and conditions of the contract.

Do you offer pro bono plans? What organizations qualify for them?

We're always happy to support teams and individuals working for a noble cause. If you are representing a charitable organization, run an educational program or maintain an open-source project, you can qualify for a pro bono plan. We also offer generous partner plans for digital agencies wishing to use the Contentful platform. Talk to us to find out the details.

How do you count API calls?

Any request made to our Content Delivery API, Content Management API or Content Preview API counts as 1 API call. Requests to the Images API do not count as API calls, but are counted towards bandwidth limits.

How many API calls / records / bandwidth do I need?

Individual numbers vary from customer to customer and depend on the way you setup your content model, roll up the client app, or how much traffic you receive each month. However, most of our customers fit comfortably into the standard plan limits. You can consult your current monthly usage of API calls, asset bandwidth, and other metrics by visiting the usage section in the web app. Please note that technical constraints prevent usage stats from being displayed to customers on the legacy pricing plans.

What is the difference between different types of support you provide?

Premium support guarantees the highest priority in the queue. Customers on the committed tier are assigned a dedicated customer success manager and enjoy response time guarantees.

Advanced support is second-highest in the priority queue: customers are assigned a dedicated customer success manager, but the Advanced support plan doesn’t include guarantees on response time. Standard support is the last in the priority queue: it allows customers to open support tickets and communicate with the support agents on the website.

Community support does not include access to support agents, but allows the customer to use the Contentful community forum to find a solution to their problem.

How quickly can I expect your support team to reply?

Customers on the committed tier enjoy response time guarantees indicated in the SLA package of their choice. We cannot provide response time guarantees to on-demand customers - it could take from a couple of hours to several days, depending on the queue and the nature of your inquiry.

How do I contact your support team?

There are multiple ways to reach out to our support. One is to use the user drop-down in the top right corner of the Contentful Web App. Another is the support contact form. Customers on the committed tier can file a support ticket or reach out to a dedicated customer success manager.

Can I import my content from other platforms into Contentful?

We have migration tools to help you with that. If your existing data collection is complex, please talk to us and we'll gladly help. Please also note the rate limit of 600 Content Management API calls per minute.

How does logo attribution work?

To help us shoulder the cost of running the free version of the product, we ask you to help us spread the word about Contentful. All it takes is adding a small powered by Contentful logo to the footer of your website, the credit section of your mobile app, or linking to our website in the Readme section of your repo.

Note: The logo attribution requirement applies to our legacy customers using the free version of the product and organizations on our pro bono plans, regardless if they are on the legacy or the current pricing plan.
