Contract Terms and Pricing
Why do I have to pay upfront for 3 years?
At this time, our policy for customers of your fleet size requires upfront payments for 3-year contracts and we offer a risk-free 30-day return period subject to our Product Refund Request policy at https://www.samsara.com/support/hardware-warranty if you decide our platform doesn’t meet your needs.
What’s included in this payment? What does it cover?
Your upfront payment covers the cost of your entire Samsara Software License for the 3-year term. This license includes as applicable the associated hardware, cloud software, cables, ongoing firmware updates, and cellular data connectivity for cellular gateways.
Why do I have to pay upfront for my subsequent/add-on purchases?
At this time, our policy for customers of your fleet size requires upfront payments for all subsequent or add-on purchases and we offer a risk-free 30-day return period subject to our Product Refund Request policy at https://www.samsara.com/support/hardware-warranty if you decide our platform doesn’t meet your needs.
Why does the size of my fleet matter?
We often find that larger organizations get the most out of their investment in Samsara because they’re looking to digitize across multiple parts of their operations, rather than a single use case. With this in mind, our pricing terms are designed to help you evaluate whether or not our technology is the best fit for your needs.
That is a very large commitment for me. What if I’m unsure about the product?
We offer a risk-free, 30-day return period subject to our Product Refund Request policy at https://www.samsara.com/support/hardware-warranty.
If I pay upfront, can I do a 1- or 2-year contract?
The required minimum contract duration is a 3-year contract.
Can I pay monthly or annually if I pay for the hardware?
This is currently not an option for small business customers. Your purchase is for a 3-year license that includes as applicable the associated hardware, cloud software, cables, ongoing firmware updates, cellular data connectivity for cellular gateways, and support.
Can I pay monthly or annually if I do not need any support?
At this time, we do not offer payment terms or pricing options by not offering support.
What if I purchase now with under 11 vehicles or 31 pieces of equipment, but grow to 11+ vehicles or 31 pieces of equipment in the near future?
If the size of your fleet increases, we can work with you to determine whether or not this impacts your current pricing terms.
Are licenses transferable between organizations?
