Overage Fees

We appreciate that the idea of overage fees can be a little scary. That’s why we want to be totally transparent with how and why our overage fees are charged.

Our overage charges are not intended to punish our customers for achieving high numbers of visits – we love to see your website grow. They are only intended to make sure our server costs do not exceed our income so that we can continue to provide the WPBeast service.

 

Visit Overage Fees

 

We charge $1 per 1000 visits over your monthly cap.

Our overage fees are charged at the beginning of the following billing period, taking into account any visits over your monthly cap from the previous period. This charge is automatically taken from your card via Stripe.

So if your plan has a cap of 25,000 visits and in a given month (i.e. the month period between your recurring billing dates) you received 27,000 visits, you would be charged an additional $2.00 on the bill of the following month.

We are always transparent. You can track your visits through your WPBeast dashboard, and we will always warn you via email before your cap has been reached. We will also be on-hand to advise on how to increase your monthly visits cap and can also offer bespoke plans if you are consistently reaching a number of visits that exceed your cap.

 

CDN Overage Fees

 

We charge $0.1 per GB over your monthly cap.

Our overage fees are charged at the beginning of the following billing period, taking into account any CDN usage over your monthly cap from the previous period. This charge is automatically taken from your card via Stripe.

So if your plan has a cap of 50GB and in a given month (i.e. the month period between your recurring billing dates) you use 60GB, you would be charged an additional $1.00 on the bill of the following month.

We are always transparent. You can track your visits through your WPBeast dashboard, and we will always warn you via email before your cap has been reached. We will also be on-hand to advise on how to increase your monthly CDN bandwidth cap and can also offer bespoke plans if you are consistently reaching a number of visits that exceed your cap.

 

We always want you to be able to hold us to account so that we are driven to provide an amazing and fair service at all times. Learn more about our transparency.
