How much does Trello cost?
Trello is free forever. We may add pay-only features in the future, but everything that's free today will be free tomorrow and forever. Also, we'll not make a for-pay feature that forces you to compromise on privacy, security, or portability. Those are built-in.
How does Trello make money?
You might wonder what's supporting Trello's development. We want our users to know that Trello has a firm foundation and is well funded. Trello is here to stay.
Trello started as a product of Fog Creek Software, a small, profitable, and friendly software company based in New York City. In July 2014, Trello spun out as its own company, with its own funding. You can read more about that process in this article about the spinout.
Ultimately, Trello is becoming a self-sustaining and profitable company in its own right. We expect to follow the ideals that have made Fog Creek—and now Trello—successful for the last decade: respect for the user, excellent customer service, integrity in business, and making profits by providing real value.
For companies using Trello, we offer Trello Business Class, which provides additional tools to help make managing an organization a bit easier. This is a paid product (yay!).
Trello Gold is designed to give individuals additional features that aren't essential to the core Trello experience. It's a way to support Trello while getting a little something in return.
