At the top end, it’s several hundred euros cheaper per month, or thousands of euros cheaper per year.

Make offers only cloud plans: Free plan, Core ($9/month), Pro ($16/month), Teams ($29/month), and Enterprise (custom pricing). These prices are based on 10,000 operations/month. Prices increase if you add more operations.
In Make, every time a module in a scenario performs an action, it counts as an operation. For example, when your scenario reads a record from Pipedrive, writes a row into a Google sheet, or posts a tweet, each counts as one operation. Depending on the complexity of the process you’re automating, your scenario can perform anywhere from two operations to thousands of operations in a single run. A single workflow can be thousands of tasks that can burn through 1/4 of the budget with a single careless execution. It’s better to use other tools for more specialized needs like scraping or looping/transforming data as even such trivial tasks will eat up most of the ops.
