Why should I subscribe to IO Plus? How is it billed?

IO+, or IO Plus, is our enhanced version of IO. For one, uncomplicated price you get unlimited groups, feeds, WipperSnapper devices, and dashboards, a higher data input rate, and longer data storage.

IO+ subscriptions are billed immediately when you subscribe and then monthly or yearly, repeating each month or year on the same day you signed up until you cancel.

Payments and Credit Card Processing

We use Stripe for payment processing and subscription management and are currently able to accept every major credit card including Visa, Master Card, American Express, Discover, JCB, and Diners Club. All charges are denominated in USD (United States dollars) but international customers are welcome!

What if I want to cancel my IO+ Subscription?

It's easy and painless - when you cancel your Adafruit IO+ subscription, your access to IO+ will continue until the end of your current billing cycle. At then end of your subscription period you account will be restored to IO Free account limits. Right now that's 10 feeds, 5 dashboards, 30 days of data storage, and a 30 data points per minute data rate. Data that has already been stored will be preserved, and all extra feeds and dashboards will be archived.

I need a higher rate limit, is this possible?

If 60 data points per minute and 60 days of storage aren't enough, we offer additional account boosts. For only $2 per month, you can add 10 data points per minute and for $5 per month, you can add 30 extra days of storage. Add as many boosts as you need!

I'm having trouble with billing, or payment processing. Can you help?

Absolutely! If you have a question we haven't answered here or on the Adafruit IO forums, or if you have a question about your subscription specifically, you can use the Adafruit Contact page to get in touch with our support team directly.

Is there a way to purchase IO+ for a yearly fee instead of billing monthly?

Sure, we offer a one-year subscription pass in the Adafruit store. 

Can I gift an IO Plus subscription to my friend, coworker, family-member, or a fellow maker?

You can purchase the subscription pass for yourself or as a gift, and send it to a family or friend. The code is redeemable within once you are signed in to your account. The code is not locked to any specific account until it is redeemed.
