Blippit Video Launch Plan Pricing & Choice
  1. If your school has a current Blippit license, you can choose not to have video activated on the account and just stay on your non-video plan. Remember to update your app  (non-video pricing)
  2. If your school has a current Blippit license and wants video activated, email support@blippit.co.uk to tell us to activate the video option for your account. We will prorate the annual video price to the end of your current year with Blippit and invoice for just that amount. e.g. if you want video now and there are still 3 months left on your current plan, we will invoice only for the remaining 3 months of the video option. The full plan price will apply for your next full year of Blippit Boards at renewal with video included automatically (see video-inclusive pricing).
  3. If you are a school on a Blippit free trial you can still order Blippit without video BUT only until 10th July 2024 after which date, the video component becomes part of the core Blippit Boards offer automatically for all new school orders i.e. school that don't have an active license plan with us.
