Are there any differences in the Beamable product between AWS and Direct?
There are no differences. If you buy Beamable via AWS, the only different is you receive streamlined billing on your Amazon Web Services account invoice and access to usage based pricing per API call.
What is the pricing to use Beamable via AWS Marketplace?
Head over to the Beamable AWS Marketplace listing for the most up-to-date pricing. You pay a monthly fee for a package of API calls and a fee for every 1M calls over you go. Contact us if you have any questions about pricing.
How does usage based pricing work?
Beamable is a collection of microservices that talk to your Unity game client. Each API call is tracked by our platform. At the end of the month, we count up all the API calls. Depending on what package you purchase, you get a number of API calls allocated to you per month, and you pay a fee for every one million API calls over that amount you make. At the end of the month, we tell Amazon the additional amount of calls over your packaged amount, and that appears on your AWS bill.
How can I determine what my monthly costs would be with usage based pricing?
If you contact us and send the DAU/MAU target of your game (or current usage), and the list of live game features you are looking to utilize (groups, events, tournaments, offers, stores, inventory, etc) we can project a monthly cost for you!
Can I negotiate pricing for Beamable with AWS?
Yes, you can contact us and request a private offer for pricing that fits your game's unique needs. We are willing to look at your game project projections and work with you on pricing that makes the most sense for your game project. Contact us here on our website or at email@example.com!
Can I retire my annual commitment for an AWS Enterprise Discount Program?
Yes! If you have negotiated an Enterprise Discount Program (EDP) for your game studio, any costs associated with using Beamable will credit against your annual spend commitments.
What are all the advantages to purchasing Beamable via AWS?

It's all consolidated on your AWS Account statement. 4) There are flexible payment options available through Amazon we can both take advantage of. 5) You can use AWS credits to pay for Beamable
