This chart outlines the various features that are available on each Podio plan (click to enlarge):
Everyone can use Podio for free for an unlimited period of time. Our free version allows up to 5 employees and 5 external members across your workspaces.
If you decide to upgrade your organization, you will pay for all employees in your workspaces (including the first 5). The price per employee depends on the tier you choose.
All employees have the ability to create workspaces and apps. While you can have admins for your workspaces, your account will not have an overall administrator. Instead, all members within your Employee Network will have the same permissions.
On a free plan, you can create up to 500 items in your organization, across all your workspaces and apps. An item here refers to an item entry made in an app. Tasks or attachments do not count as separate items. Find out more about what is an item, app and workspace.
Example: If you have 6 employees in your organization and choose the Basic plan, you would pay $54 per month ($9 x 6 employees).
We offer a 20% discount if you choose an annual plan, which you can select after you initially upgrade.
Example: If you have 6 employees in your organization and choose the Basic plan, you would pay $518.40 per year (compared to $648 after twelve one-month payments).
A valid credit card is required in order to upgrade. Once upgraded, all employees are then able to access the extra features included in their plan.
Frequently Asked Questions
I am being charged for external users after I have upgraded. I thought you can invite as many external users as you want for free?
Yes, you are right! You can invite as many external users as you want on the paid version. The problem is that no unique domain has been added to your organization. Therefore, Podio does not know who is an external or internal user.
To get access to free external members, please submit a request and we will get that set up for you ASAP.
If a member is in two different workspaces in the same organization and both workspaces are upgraded, will I pay for that person twice?
No, the employee will only be charged once since both workspaces are in the same organization.
