No, we don't recommend a single experience.

Is Userpilot pricing per application or domain?

Userpilot pricing is not based on apps or domains.

Pricing is based on the total number of monthly active users (MAU) in a 30-day period. The active user total includes unique visitors only and not total visitors to a page with Userpilot script. The more unique users, the higher the monthly fee.

You're free to install Userpilot on as many URLs, domains, web applications, and domains as you want. For more information, click here to learn more: Userpilot Pricing.

How can I push a flow live?

Once you have inserted the Userpilot code snippet into your web application, you can show flows and content live to your users. This code snippet loads with the page and uses user properties and custom events you passed to Userpilot to show the right product experience live to the right desired segment under the right conditions.

Here's how you publish a flow:

  1. Open the web page with the flow you want to publish.
  2. Click the Userpilot icon in the Chrome browser. The Builder opens.
  3. Click the Publish button in the bottom right corner of the Builder bar. The flow is now live.
  • Make sure the Userpilot script is installed on the page.
  • New flows must be published from the Builder.
  • If you change an existing live flow, you must publish it again in order to make the changes live.
