Free New Connector Trial
Follow this guide to learn about your Fivetran free connector trial.
Once your 14-day free account trial has ended and your account is active, you have a 14-day free trial for every connector that you create in your dashboard. The connector trial automatically applies to all new connectors, irrespective of their type. You can have multiple free connector trials running simultaneously in your account.
NOTE: No MAR from a connector that is active within the connector trial period will contribute to your credit usage during its 14-day trial.
MAR and credit usage estimate
We provide a MAR and credit usage estimate during the trial period so that you can see what your new connectors may cost. After the first seven continuous days of the connector's activity within one month, you will receive an estimate of your monthly MAR (monthly active rows) and credit usage for the connector. For example, you create a connector on September 29. Your estimate will not be available until October 7 because, while you are nine days into the connector trial, you are only seven days into the month. The monthly usage estimate calculation is based on the new connector's first seven continuous days of activity within one month and your credit consumption rate for the last month.
NOTE: We strongly advise that you do not pause a connector during the free connector trial period because if you do, we will have not enough consumption data to provide an estimate in a timely manner.
