ThingSpeak pricing is based on a count of messages to be processed and stored in a one-year period. ThingSpeak is available as a free service for non-commercial small projects (<3 million messages/year or ~8200 messages/day). For larger projects or commercial applications, four different annual license types are offered: Student, Home, Academic, and Standard. See the table and Pricing Calculator below for details. ThingSpeak is bought in units, where one unit allows 33 million messages to be processed and stored in a one-year period (~90,000 messages/day). See Licensing FAQ for more details.
