Billy is free for teams with less than 30 users. It's also free to install for larger teams (no credit card required) because we offer a 30 days free trial.

Billy counts the number of active users in the workspace (excluding bots or any inactive accounts to only take employees into account).
The rate adjusts every time a slack user is removed or added. There is a pro-rata mechanism. So for example, if you spend 1/3 of the month at 180 users and 2/3 of the month at 120, the rate will be: (1/3 * 180 + 2/3*120) * ($_Current_price)
