Why do I see a "plan limits" banner ?

Last April GitBook V2 was released as a public beta. Thanks to all your feedback we've been shipping features and improvements every week since!

As part of the beta all features were made available to users for free, essentially a free-trial for all beta-users.

Starting August 15th, GitBook V2 will be out of beta, your plan's limits and quotas will be activated. See our pricing page for more info

You're seeing this banner because you are on a free plan and you have:

  • more than 2 users or

  • more than 2 projects (1 private & 1 public)

What happens if I exceed the free plan's quotas ?

If you exceed your plan's limits, you may need to upgrade to add more users or update content. Your content will still be available (read-only) in the meantime.

We always keep your data safe unless you explicitly ask us to delete it.

How is the Free plan different from the Startup and Business plans?

The free plan was essentially a free-trial, it allowed you to test GitBook with a limit of 2 spaces and 2 collaborators.

The Startup & Business plans have no such limits, you can have as many users or projects as you want. They also come with extra features such as SSO, custom branding, fast search powered by Algolia, secret links, ...

I'm a legacy (v1) customer, what's my plan?

All paid org accounts from GitBook legacy (v1) keep their old plan unless explicitly changed by one of the org admins.

I'm a non-profit or open-source orgs, do I need to upgrade?

No, valid non-profits and (non-commercial) open-source teams will always have access to GitBook for free, it's our way of giving back to the community.

If you've already asked for a discount and see the upgrade banner, don't worry about it, we will apply this discount gradually to all the appropriate orgs.

All organisations must fill in the form (also available from our pricing page), we’ll verify your application and apply the discount if you are eligible.
