Each package allows a different amount of usage time per month. The usage time is calculated as the processing time on each selected configuration for each test, whether it is running your own selenium scripts or a series of automated screenshots.

MANUAL TESTING UNLIMITED. This does not count against your minutes (unless you have a free trial account). On the live tests, your minutes are tracked for the time you have a remote browser session up and running. If you walk away without ending your session, the system will automatically end your current session after it detects 5 minutes of inactivity – ie no mouse or keyboard activity. You can adjust this time from 5 to 15 minutes under the advanced settings link.
Verify the visual layout of your site across browsers
A screenshot is accounted in terms of seconds. You are only charged time when the screenshot is being taken, not for the start up and tear down time for an OS (we launch fresh configs for every test to ensure your company’s privacy). Typically, each screenshot takes from 0:30 to 1:30 minutes to complete, depending on the length of the page, the browser selected, and the OS selected. If a screenshot fails to process, there is no charge.

This is similar to the way minutes are calculated. The time it takes to run a test in selenium is dependent on what you write your script to do and how long it takes to run the script.
Running Out of Minutes
When you run out of minutes, you will not be able to run any tests until you either refill your minutes or upgrade your account to the next higher plan. Both of these options would be available from the pricing page. You can also contact us at [email protected]
Choose the package that fits your needs. At any time, you can upgrade to a bigger package (you will receive a prorated credit for the previous package) or drop down to a smaller package (will take effect at the next subscription period). As your needs change, change your package.
For every month that you do not use all of your minutes, you’ll add to your rollover bank. We put this in place for teams who have months where usage may be lighter, as well as months where QA is critical, and there will be heavy usage. The rollover bank can not exceed three times your total monthly allotment.
