The pricing page displays all the available plans you can subscribe to on Phantombuster.
A plan is based on the amount of execution time you have available and the number of Phantoms you can have in use.
What's execution time?
When you launch a Phantom, a bot browses the web on your behalf. The time needed to execute all its actions is called "Execution time." It resets every day at midnight and does not stack over time.
E.g., two Phantoms running for 5 minutes each will count as 10 minutes of used execution time.
What's a Phantom?
A Phantom is a bot or automation which browses the web on your behalf. The number of Phantoms you can "install" and "launch" at the same time depends on the plan you are subscribed to.
E.g., if you want to use LinkedIn Network Booster on two different LinkedIn accounts, you need two Phantoms.
What's the email discovery service?
One of the main needs of our users is to find professional email addresses. Sometimes these aren't publicly available. So, we created "Email Discovery" to use a full name and company name to return a verified email address on average 70% of the time.
This service is only available with paid subscriptions.
Do I need to know how to code?
Absolutely not! Phantombuster has evolved and turned into a tool for creative, non-technical people. Building advanced strategies for helping your team grow doesn't have to be bound to technical skills anymore.
Why do I need a proxy?
All our automation is executed from the cloud. Poetic as it sounds, our cloud is actually down here on earth, and has addresses all over the world. Sometimes websites consider it weird that you connect from your home town, in Europe for instance, and moments later from Phantombuster in the USA. To avoid this issue you need to use a proxy.
What's the database?
All the data you get from our services is stored on our servers. The database is the space you’re allowed with any Phantombuster account. If you reach the limit you’re free to download or delete it as you like. You can also ask our team to make you a custom plan.
What are the CAPTCHA credits?
You've probably encountered CAPTCHAs in your life, those little boxes that verify if you’re human. Believe it or not, they can be overcome. It’s just a bit costly. For that reason, we had to create this extra credit. Only a few of our Phantoms need them.
Can I code my own automation?
Yes, absolutely! Teams with developers can create their own custom scripts, execute them from Phantombuster and chain them within workflows. Check out our 'how to' doc for more information.
What happens when I switch plan?
When you change your subscription plan, your resources (including your available execution time) will be immediately updated to match your new plan, whether this is lower or higher.
If you switch plan during your current subscription month/year, your payments will be prorated accordingly. So, if you switch to a higher pricing plan, what you have already paid will be taken into consideration - you will only pay the difference between the two plans, and only for the remaining days of your subscription cycle. If you switch to a lower pricing plan, you will be left with a positive balance on your account and your future payments will be prorated accordingly.
