I have a workspace with several private boards and the two boards I use for university teaching. I already applied for the university pricing and was turned down with a few minutes.  If I have about 14 collaborators on the two university boards, will I be charged for them or will they be free as long as they are only on one board?

Also, I cannot figure out where to upgrade and pay for a plan.

Hi @Julianna Nickel 

Trello Pricing can be viewed here:

To upgrade your instance, you'll need to be a Workspace Admin - and then:

  1. Go to your Trello home page
  2. Open up the menu options for your Workspace, on the left-hand side
  3. From the list, choose Settings
  4. From the left-hand menu again, choose Workspace Settings > Upgrade workspace
  5. Choose a plan from here, and follow the steps


Starting from Standard Plans, paid plans allow for single board guests which are not billed. They're only billable if they become multi-board guests.

So essentially they will be free if they only have access to one board.

See below - from this help page - on when a guest is billable or free:

Guest types and cost

While all guests are free on free Workspace boards, guests on Premium and Standard Workspace boards can incur an additional charge.

  • Free guest: A person is is invited to a single board in a Workspace is a single-board guest. This user is not billable.

  • Billable guest: A board member who is on two or more Standard or Premium Workspace boards is a multi-board guest of that Workspace. Multi-board guests are billed at the same rate as a normal Workspace member and consume a seat license.
