Simply add funds and create a proxy or tunnel with pay-as-you-go pricing
$1 = 100 Lec Points
Traffic is calculated hourly for each proxy/tunnel created, and rounded up to the nearest gigabyte (for example, 1336.69 GB is rounded up to 1337 GB). The hourly usage is then billed and deducted from your credit balance automatically. If you don’t have any proxy or tunnel created in your account, no money is deducted on an hourly basis, so you don’t have to worry about that.
All plans include Accelerate feature to reach your origin faster via priority path network selection and single hop optimization, and to your end users faster using the nearest anycast edge point of presence locations available. Everything is automated.

Low entry fee. No string attached. Pinky promise.
Does it cost a lot?
Very low cost. Lectron services are billed individually based on usage presented in the table above. You just need to add a minimum amount of credit to create a protected proxy or tunnel. Most services are enough for you to run smaller applications at very little cost (and when they grow, very low cost). Billing is per user or organization (collaborative team feature will be coming soon).
How much do I need to start?
For now, the minimum amount of credit to be added to your account before creating a protected proxy or tunnel is $10 USD. You only need to add funds, pay for what you use, and that’s it.
What are some payment methods I can use?
You can use credit/debit card (VISA, MasterCard, AMEX, etc…) and Paypal to add credit to your account and pay for our services. The process is straightforward and payment are secured by Stripe and Paypal API.
How do you calculate traffic?
Our automatic systems use API calls to periodically query our internet upstream transit providers’ API to get inbound and outbound traffic for your proxy/tunnel and round it up to the nearest gigabyte.
How frequent is the traffic usage billed?
For each proxy/tunnel that you create, traffic is calculated hourly and rounded up to the nearest gigabyte (for example, 1336.69 GB is rounded up to 1337 GB). The hourly usage is then billed and deducted from your credit balance automatically. If you don’t have any proxy or tunnel created in your account, no money is deducted on an hourly basis, so you don’t have to worry about that.
What happens to the $0.01 that is deducted every hour even when I don’t have any traffic yet?
That is part of our rounded up to the nearest upper gigabyte in the pricing model listed above. You can consider it the price for unused reserved resource (in this case a created proxy or tunnel that isn’t used).
This is similar to other cloud providers, the only difference is that Lectron is cheaper and we already includes different calculations into one simple price of $0.01/GB.
Please take a look at Google Cloud Network Pricing for example: Google Cloud charges for compute engine and for reserved IP address whether or not it’s being used or unused. Similarly, Lectron also have similar cloud pricing model, but cheaper and easier to understand: We have everything under the 0.01 per GB, rounded to the higher nearest GB, per proxy/tunnel created, only after when you create a proxy/tunnel
Can I create multiple proxies?
Yes. Although, to reduce cheats and abuse, we require that you have at least $10 in your credit balance prior to the creation of each proxy or tunnel. If you want to create two or more protected proxies or tunnels, just make sure that you have $20 or the amount of $10 x amount of proxies/tunnels you want in your credit balance prior to clicking Create a Proxy or Create a Tunnel.
Can I edit the information in my proxy or tunnel after creation?
Yes. After creating a proxy or tunnel, you will be able to edit it as long as you wish.
Can I claim back credit after adding to my account?
No. We don’t support claiming back credit yet. If you have a small amount of dollars and cents left in your account, we will help you make use of it via our future various products. We have a roadmap to gamify the usage of the Lectron product ecosystem so that the leftover credit that you might have is not wasted.
Is support included?
Community support is included for all customers, regardless of usage level.
We will soon offer paid support plans with SLA guarantees as well.
