Once your trailing twelve month sales volume reaches the maximum of $180,000, you will be automatically upgraded to Pro, starting at $299.95/month and entitling you to $400,000 in annual online sales. For every $200,000 in online sales beyond that, you’ll be charged an
additional $150 per month.
This is a sum of the sales volume you have processed over the last twelve months. If you have only been with BigCommerce for three months, it will be a sum of the last three months. After a year on BigCommerce, your most recent twelve months of sales counts towards your annual
online sales volume. This practice eliminates seasonal spikes and helps make monthly plan costs predictable.
