Billing & usage

Overview of billing options and MAUs on Synap
Synap has two plans: Standard and Pro, and two billing methods: Pay as you Go (PAYG) and Monthly.

📅 Monthly billing

On monthly plans payments are taken in advance, you'll be charged the full cost of the plan and tier you've selected as well as any accrued overages from the previous month. For both Standard and Pro plans there are different tiers based on Monthly Active Users (MAUs).
An MAU is any user who logs in and performs any of the actions:
  • Starts exam attempt
  • Starts quiz attempt
  • Views a collection item
  • Starts an assignment
On monthly plans a unique MAU has been counted, any additional actions performed by the same user will not be charged for. So there is no additional cost for an already counted MAU taking 1 exam vs them taking 100 exams and starting an assignment. This is unique to monthly plans and it doesn't work the same way on PAYG plans.
The following user actions would not contribute towards an MAU count:
  • Views certificate
  • Views results pages
  • Views insights
  • Resuming a started assignment
  • Updates account information
  • Views pinned note pages

💳 PAYG (Pay as you go)

Pay as you go billing works by pre purchasing bundles of credits, which are then spent on different user actions. Credits expire 12 months after purchase. Some proctoring options incur additional costs
