Edlink offers an access-based pricing model. This pricing model consists of 2 pieces, a “Monthly Platform Fee” and an “Additional Synced Person Fee”.

The details of our pricing plans are available here.

What does the monthly platform fee include?

The Monthly Platform Fee gives edtech companies (aka our clients) access to all of Edlink’s functionality, features, and services relevant to a client’s pricing tier. The fee also grants access to any new features or services developed over the lifetime of our working relationship which is applicable to the client’s pricing tier. This includes the following:

  • a 5-min IT admin onboarding flow to connect new educational institutions (branded with client’s logo front and center),
  • Tools to manage product licensing so a client can decide who are their synced people (read access to their product),
  • One simple single sign-on flow for all integrations for all synced people in your platform,
  • The ability to transform and override multiple data sets at once,
  • The ability to connect a second data source to enrich data sets and match people within them

What is a synced person?

A synced person is anyone from an educational institution that is licensed to use our clients' products (aka edtech companies). This means the institution has allowed the edtech company to access this person's information and course rosters (through the Edlink Product Licensing feature). The person's data is “synced” and able to be accessed by the edtech company's product via the Edlink Unified API.

Will we be charged if a district “overshares” its data?

Edlink offers client's to give out Product Licenses which lets clients scope down the data a school shares. By doing so, clients grant access to only the subset of that data. Licenses can be set in Edlink’s Dashboard. So a client’s “synced people” are determined by the Licenses clients set in place, not what the district (over)shares.

Edlink offers monthly and 1-year agreements. Sometimes our “Scale" clients opt for a longer agreement in exchange for a lower Per Synced Person Fee.

How does the Development Grace Period work?

For clients who are on the Grow or Scale plan, we offer a 30 or 60 day (respectively) grace period, under contract, which allows them to access the full depth and breadth of our products and associated services. This gives Edlink the ability to offer consulting and advice freely and means that our clients don't pay any upfront implementation fees. The grace period expires 30 or 60 days (depending on the plan) from the execution date of the agreement or when our client onboard their first school using Edlink, whichever occurs first.
