The Essential plan is the basic one, it includes 100 registrations for 1 month and provides the organizer with access to all the foundational features of the platform. Subscribing to this plan you can be sure that you get a professional tool for creating virtual events.

This plan costs $149 per month. Please note that we do not have an annual subscription to the Essential plan.

Note: The quoted price applies when staying within the plan’s maximum registrations and other limits.

Please check below the review of the platform possibilities within the Essential plan in various sections: streaming, networking, branding, ticketing, etc.


On the Essential plan, you have the possibility to stream unlimited hours using 3rd party players like Youtube, Vimeo, Twitch, etc. Moreover, you can stream pre-recorded video for unlimited hours.

If you decide to stream directly through PINE, you have 1 hour included for streaming using this option. Please note that you can buy more streaming hours at the price of $30.00 per extra hour. Check our guide on how to buy extra streaming hours, registrations, etc.

RTMP streams are also limited to 1 hour. If you want to buy extra hours for this kind of streaming, it will cost you $10.00 per extra hour.

Note: The stream will be automatically stopped in case there are no streaming hours left.

When conducting streams through RTMP you have 15 free minutes that are given as a bonus for you to set up the stream.

Please pay attention to the fact that if you do NOT stop the RTMP stream, but stop the session, you will be charged these streaming hours anyway even if the session is over. We bill for the transmitted content and not for the session hours.

The cost for 1-1 meetings is $1.00 per meeting.

The cost for random meetings is $0.50 per meeting.

From our side we bill only meetings that took place - the duration of the meeting is not less than 10 seconds.

Such features as private chats, public group chats, and activity feed are available without any limits.
