Funnel pricing is determined by functionality and flexpoints. Your plan determines which functionality is available to you. Flexpoints measure the capacity of your Funnel subscription. With Funnel, you only pay for what you actually connect. You start your subscription at a certain amount of flexpoints. Need more flexpoints? You can add more to any plan, either via our sales team or inside the platform. Visit our pricing page for details about our price plans.

What are flexpoints?

  • Flexpoints measure your usage of Funnel and represent your capacity. Different features, like connectors, require flexpoints.

  • You can adjust your allocation of flexpoints as often as you'd like. Your total flexpoints represent the maximum available, and any you don't use won't roll over to the next month.

How many flexpoints do I have available?

Subscription owners can view their current flexpoint count and usage in the "Usage" tab.

Do unused flexpoints carry over to the following months?

No, a subscription has a certain number of flexpoints allowed to be used, and unused flexpoints cannot be saved for future months. As a concrete example, you can think about flexpoints as the available storage you have on your phone.

How do I add more flexpoints?

Additional flexpoints can be purchased in increments of 100. Contact our support team or your contact person at Funnel to add flexpoints.

Can I see my flexpoint usage?

Subscription owners can view their flexpoint usage in the "Usage" tab, showing your total capacity and how this capacity is currently allocated.

​Flexpoints by Workspace

If you have more than one workspace, you are able to see a breakdown of the usage by workspace at the bottom of the page.


The first section shows the setup usage, i.e. usage that could not be tied to a specific Workspace but to your Subscription, for example, flexpoint-usage for Connectors and Data Share types.

What is using flexpoints?

The following table contains our Flexpoint Rate Card that applies to our 2024 plans. If you're on a legacy plan, the flexpoints usage you see in your subscription might not exactly reflect this table:

Connectors

50 flexpoints

Data sources

5 flexpoints

Visualization destinations

150 flexpoints

Data Warehouse destinations

300 flexpoints

Custom connectors (and their data sources) and X Organic (and its data sources) require double flexpoints due to the extra effort and cost incurred connecting to these platforms.

In the tables below you can see a details view of when Data sources and Data Share types use flexpoints.
