November 23, 2012 in Business
[prMac.com] Lugano, Switzerland - As a result of the rapid increase in the number of users, Passdock has been able to obtain an improved contract with its cloud service providers. What does this mean for Passdock's clients?
The new prices are much more affordable:
* Small Offer from $97 USD/month (up to 10,000 API calls)
* Medium Offer from $497/month (up to 50,000 API calls)
* Large Offer of $797/month (up to 100,000 API calls)
The "Forever Free" option remains unchanged: anyone can access the site and it's free to use Passdock tools to create and deliver an unlimited number of Passbook passes.
Also, for those who want to organize one-shot events, Passdock provides three prepaid options:
* Pay & Go Small from $30 (up to 1,000 API calls)
* Pay & Go Medium from $125 (up to 5,000 API calls)
* Pay & Go Large from $200 (up to 10,000 API calls)
To make its services even more convenient for its users, Passdock has provided an extra threshold option so as to increase the flexibility of monthly payment plans. For example, if a user chooses the Small Offer, but exceeds 10,000 calls/month, he or she will only pay $0.0097 for each call. This unique feature is fully integrated into the range of actions that are available to users who utilize the Passdock system.
