AWS Marketplace is announcing free trials for SaaS usage-based pricing products, an extension of the free trials for SaaS contracts experience that was introduced on May 31, 2022. With free trials in AWS Marketplace, Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) can grow their business by reducing sign up friction and providing prospects a first-hand experience of the product. 

This release enables ISVs to self-service create free trial offers on their SaaS usage-based pricing listings in just a few clicks. New visual cues, such as the ‘Free Trial’ badge next to the logo of the product and a call to action ‘Try for Free’ button on the product detail page, distinguish the free trial products in AWS Marketplace. Navigation improvements to the console and procurement pages streamline the upgrade path from a trial to a paid subscription. The agreement detail report and updates to the SNS notifications allow ISVs to effortlessly track customers who start a free trial. ISVs will have the ability to identify free trial users and customize the landing page experience for them when they click through AWS Marketplace to ISV’s site to set up the product.

Create free trial offers for your AWS Marketplace SaaS products today by following the steps in the Seller Guide.
