How is Intercom's real price calculated?

To show you how Intercom’s pricing model works, we’ve calculated their real price based on the Starter plan.

The starting price is $79/mo. That includes 1 agent and 1,000 chats/mo (so-called “people reached”). One agent can handle about 2,000 chats/mo. It means you have to pay an extra $50/mo for this agent. If you have more than 1 agent, you must pay $19/mo for each additional agent and $50/mo for each 1,000 extra chats. Let’s count the real price depending on team size:

  • 1 agent — $129 per agent/mo ($79 + $50 for 1,000 extra chats)
  • 5 agents — $121 per agent/mo ($79 + $76 for 4 additional agents + $450 for 9,000 extra chats = $605/mo divided by 5 agents)
  • 15 agents — $120 per agent/mo ($79 + $266 for 14 additional agents + $1450 for 29,000 extra chats = $1,795/mo divided by 15 agents)

The real average price is $123 per agent/mo ($129 + $121 + $120 divided by 3).

How is Intercom's real price for extra channels calculated?

Let’s say you want to connect 3 channels to your live chat: Facebook, Viber, and Telegram. To do so, you have to use a third-party add-on (e.g., Octopods) and pay extra according to their pricing.

Integration with your first channel costs $49/mo. Every additional channel costs $39/mo. So, the price of integration with 3 channels is $127/mo.
