Monthly fee for Photon?

Is there a monthly fee to use the web development ide for the Particle Photon? i.e. straight WiFi.

Is the monthly fee only for Electron GSM services?

For the IDE, it’s free for use as per how you are using it to program the Photon now.

Celluar data usage is the one incurring charges for the electron.

The other paid service will be the Dashboard if you need extra features to manage your devices.

Nope, IDE is a free service across all our products! For the Electron, you only pay for the data. If you plan to deploy a large number of devices, then we offer you an easy way to manage and scale that - with plenty of pricing structures to choose from.
