Pushwoosh vs. Firebase pricing:
the tricky part

Firebase may look appealing for beginners as the platform offers free access to its features — until you exceed a certain limit. Then their "pay as you go" pricing swings into action. The bill depends directly on the amount of data stored and transferred with Firebase, the number of verifications performed, and hours of testing.

Such highly customizable pricing may look fair, but it may be inconvenient for the user. You never know precisely in advance how much you'll have to pay in the end. This means that the app's growth will be both a blessing and a curse.

Pushwoosh, in the meantime, offers several custom plans for marketers, as well as a limited-functionality plan for developers. Either way, the ultimate price of the package will be arranged beforehand and won't be a surprise for your accountants at the end of the month. Moreover, if you surpass the limits in the course of the paid period, your messaging won't stop altogether. Your notifications will be delivered within the volume you've paid for.
