Usagebased pricing
Sequence supports a range of standard and usagebased pricing models
Choose your pricing model
Linear pricing
Charge a single, linear rate for usage.
Example
$0.1
per unit550 units = $55.00
Examples: OpenAI  GPT3 Davinci
Linear pricing (Percentagebased)
Charge a single, linear percentagebased fee for usage. You can optionally set a minimum and a maximum fee threshold. For example, charge 0.5% of every payment event with a $1 minimum and a $10 cap per payment.
Example
0.5%
per payment
Calculation for 50 payments amounting to $1,000
= $1,000
* 0.5%
= $5.00
Examples: Stripe  Invoicing
Linear pricing with fee thresholds
Use minimum and maximum fee threshold to charge a predictable amount for transactions.
Example
2.00%
per payment,$1.00
minimum unit fee,$10.00
maximum unit fee
Calculation for 3 payments of $25
, $100
and $500
:

2.00%

Total: $1.00
+ $2.00
+ $10.00
= $13.00
Examples: Stripe  Invoicing
Volume pricing
Offer volume discounts for higher usage and an optional flat fee per usage tier. Customers only pay the unit and flat fee in their current tier.
Example
 Tier 1: 0  100 units @
1$/unit
+$20
flat fee  Tier 2: 100  ∞ units @
$0.75/unit
+$50
flat fee
Calculation for 125 units: 125 * $0.75 + $50 = $143.75
Examples: Twilio  SMS
Volume pricing (Percentagebased)
Similar to standard volume tiers, but the unit price is a percentage of a sum (e.g., total transactions). Customers only pay the percentage and flat fee in their current tier. Optionally configure a unit cap that applies to each percentage charge (e.g. 0.2% of transaction volume, capped at $5 per transaction). For percentagebased volume pricing, you can optionally set a minimum and a maximum fee threshold. For example, charge 0.5% of every payment event with a $1 minimum and a $10 cap per payment.
Example
 Tier 1:
0  $10,000
@ 0.1% +$500
flat fee  Tier 2:
$10,000  ∞
@ 0.05% +$250
flat fee
Calculation for $15,000
Transaction volume: $15,000 * 0.05% + $250 = $325
Examples: Stripe  Payments
Graduated pricing
Charge multiple rates for multiple tiers (similar to progressive income tax), with an optional flat fee per tier. Tiers and flat fees accumulate.
Example
 Tier 1: 0  500 units @
$0.5/unit
+$500
flat fee  Tier 2: 501  ∞ units @
$0.7/unit
+$750
flat fee
Calculation for 125 units: 100 * $1 + $20 + 25 * $0.75 + $50 = $188.75
Examples: Amazon Web Services  S3
Graduated pricing (Percentagebased)
Similar to standard graduated tiers, but the unit price is a percentage of a sum (e.g., total transactions). Tiers and flat fees accumulate.
Example
 Tier 1:
0  $10000
@ 0.1% +$500
flat fee  Tier 2:
$10000  ∞
@ 0.05% +$250
flat fee
Calculation for $15000
Transaction volume: $10000 * 0.1% + $500 + $5000 * 0.05% + $250 = $875
Packaged pricing
Charge a fixed price for a package of units (similar to linear rate but with packaged quantities). Also known as stairstep pricing.
Example
Pricing: $10
per 250 units
Calculation for 600 units: 3 Packages * $10 = $30
