What happens when I sign up for a free trial?

The AppDirect platform allows you to launch a white-label software marketplace to sell your own core offerings, along with third-party products. When signing up for the trial you will be activated on the Starter Plan, which gives full access to the marketplace but you cannot perform transactions (no billing/invoicing/sales are processed through the marketplace). If You decide to move to paid plan, you can choose from one of three options:

  • AppDirect Starter - $799 USD / month
  • AppDirect - $1499 USD / month
  • AppDirect Enterprise (Listing or commerce) - Custom pricing
