    Our company is planning to develop a mobile application ​that uses push notifications. We're going to purchase Platform Professional license for our developer. The application is developed for an external client. Should our client buy Telerik Platform license (or any Telerik product license) to be able to use push notifications in our application if Free Data Plan meets our requirements? And if it doesn't meet, will it be sufficient for our client to choose an advanced data plan (without purchase of any product license)? Thanks in advance.

    Hi Evgeny,

    Thank you for your question.

    Each Telerik Platform account comes with a Starter Data Plan which includes 1 000 000 push notifications per month. You can easily upgrade the data plan if the limit is reached and you will have a grace period included so you can purchase a larger data plan when your app expands and when it is actually needed.

    In regard to the external client. I can think of the following options:

     - You can easily create a simple web or desktop UI portal that communicates with the REST API of Backend Services in your Platform account and allows the client to send and manage push notifications.

     - You can purchase a separate seat for the customer and invite him in your Platform account. Thus the customer will be able to examine the development phases and use the built-in portal for push notifications. 

     - The above option could be reversed - the customer buys the subscription and invites you in the Platform account. When the app is developed the app, the backend and the other services are handed over to them and they manage the account and data subscriptions.

    In addition, we have a feature request in our Feedback portal where you can vote and share any thoughts on this and other feature requests or ideas. Do you think such feature would be a viable option for you?

    I have passed your inquiries to your Platform account representative and he will get in touch with more information on the above and explain in depth each of the specifics in the cases I only outlined briefly above. 

    Let me know if further questions arise.
