Glific is a free, libre, open source platform. As such you can download and use the codebase for free. While the platform per se is free, it is built on the WhatsApp Business API and there is a cost involved with sending and receiving messages via WhatsApp Business API. The exact cost of this depends on your Business Service Provider (BSP).
This pricing mentioned below is subject to change and we plan on evaluating the pricing every 6 months as Glific scales
Business service provider
Glific today using Gupshup.io as its BSP. Gupshup rates for India are 0.1 cent (7.5 paise) to either send or receive a session message and 0.5 cent (38 paise) to send an HSM message. Thus for example if your NGO is in touch with 1000 beneficiaries sending/receiving 40 messages from each of them and sending 10 nudge messages to them, your messaging cost will be $90 (INR 6,750)
For messaging volumes greater than 1 million, we have an agreement with Gupshup to cap charges at USD 1000, and beyond this, only HSMs will be charged at WhatsApp pricing.
SaaS platform run by ColoredCow
can be availed at INR 7,500 for messaging upto 250K a month. For higher volumes, it will be a percentage of the messaging costs.

< 10hrs of work: INR 3000/hr
10-50 hrs of work: INR 2500/hr
