Upgrade Free Trial

Introduction

This page explains how you can upgrade your free trial of Tyk Cloud to a full account, to continue enjoying the benefits of Tyk Cloud.

My free trial is coming to an end. What are my options?

Every new Tyk Cloud account is assigned to our 14 free trial. You have the following options:

  • Upgrade to a paid plan at any stage of the free trial period.
  • Use the free trial period and upgrade after it expires

What happens if my free trial expires?

If your free trial ends without you upgrading, your account enters what we call retirement.

I’ve trialled more than what my desired paid plan allows.

During the free trial we give you the same access as our Enterprise Global plan. When you come to the end of your free trial, you may want to subscribe to a plan such as ‘Proof of Concept’ which only allows 1 Environment, Control Plane and Edge Gateway. If you had an excess of these set up during your free trial, you would need to remove the appropriate amount of Environments etc from your Organisation in order to start the paid plan. But don’t worry, we’ll let you know what you need to remove when you go to purchase a plan.
