Corporate Accounts

Who should make corporate accounts, how to make them, and their rules and restrictions.


What is a Corporate Account

Corporate accounts are specialized accounts that apply to those running accounts for businesses and business-like entities. This can include certain types of projects, conferences / events, and non-profit organizations as well as traditional for-profit companies of any size.

Some corporate accounts may be affiliated with Nivenly Trade Members, although this is not a requirement. (Clarification: this is a requirement we removed prior to the 1 Mar 2023 launch.) For a quick summary of Nivenly, please see the end of this article.

Corporate account application information and cost

Corporate account standard pricing is tiered based on size and is as follows:

  • <25 employees: $650/year
  • 25-49 employees: $1000/year
  • 50-99 employees: $1500/year
  • 100-149 employees: $2000/year
  • 150-999 employees: $2500/year

Entities with 1000+ employees or more than 50,000 followers will have customized High Volume pricing based on resource usage. If you believe your entity would fall in this range, please mention that you will need High Volume Pricing when you email us at

If you are a small startup (<25 employees) and $650/year would be a burden: please still reach out to us! We want to help the industry as much as possible and work with you.
