What’s available during a free trial

If you're a Launch Plan user and have opted for a free trial of the Scale or Max Plan, here's what you can expect:

Access to most paid features

During your free trial period, you'll have access to most of our paid features as outlined below.

Should you decide not to upgrade to a paid plan after the trial ends, you'll be automatically subscribed to our free Launch Plan. As a Launch Plan user, you'll be subject to its respective limits. For instance, you'll only be able to send emails to up to 2,500 subscribers, even if your import limit exceeds this number.

Features not included in the free trial



Boosts While you can browse the Boosts marketplace during your trial, you won't be able to apply to offers or create your own.
Premium Subscriptions Setting up premium subscriptions is not available during the trial period.


Features unlocked during the trial that are premium-gated afterwards

These features will remain accessible during your trial but will require a paid subscription once the trial period ends. Click here to view our Pricing page to see what’s included with all beehiiv plans.

During the trial period, you’ll have the flexibility to create more than 3 segments on the Launch Plan. After the trial period ends, you’ll be limited to a maximum of 3 segments due to Launch Plan restrictions. You can also send emails to segments during the trial. However, this feature becomes accessible only with a paid plan after the trial period ends.
Surveys Gather data from subscribers right from your newsletter and then use the data to tailor your content.

Note: The option to remove the beehiiv branding from the app is only available on the Max trial. 

Disclaimer: Your beehiiv dashboard may still display a trial modal until the end of your Scale or Max trial period when you upgrade. Once the trial concludes, your dashboard will accurately reflect the chosen plan you're subscribed to.
