So why are there some premium features?Researching, building, documenting, testing and maintaining quality products take years of experience and months of hard work by the team behind the scenes. When you purchase a premium plugin, you get a fully working product and you directly help the Matomo core engineers to grow and fund the new Free Matomo versions and cool features. However, it is important for us to mention that Matomo will always be free, it is a Free software under GPLv3 license and it will always be the same. Want to know more about this? Check out our FAQ about why there are premium features.
Can I test a premium feature before a purchase?Absolutely. There are two ways in order to do that:
- InnoCraft Matomo Cloud
- Matomo Marketplace
1. InnoCraft Matomo CloudThe easiest way is to create a free trial account (one minute of your time) on our Matomo cloud service. You will then have the possibility to test all the premium features during a 30-day trial period. No credit card is required.
Every premium feature can be trialled for free on the Matomo Cloud
2. Matomo MarketplaceThe second way is to get the premium feature from the Matomo Marketplace. We have an easy and hassle-free 30-day free trial period on each feature.
