Usage for Google Analytics 4 properties

Google Analytics 360 for GA4 Properties will be launching in 2021. If your organization has begun to utilize and test Google Analytics 4 properties, Org and Billing Admins have the ability to view usage metrics such as total events, billable events, as well as a preview of what the monthly billable amount would be on the GA4 pricing structure.

To preview 360 billing:

  1. Sign in to Google Marketing Platform.
  2. Click Administration > Organizations.
  3. Click the relevant organization.
  4. Sales Partner: Click Clients, click a client name, then click Usage.
    Client: Click Usage.

360 pricing for Google Analytics 4 properties

Analytics 360 for GA4 properties will carry a fixed base fee, which includes the first 25M monthly events, and a variable per-event fee based on event volume (beyond the initial 25M monthly events). The variable event volume fee is broken out into volume tiers and as monthly volume increases, the cost per event decreases. To view a detailed breakdown of these tiers (the billable events so far for the month), click ‘View details’ once you have turned on the bill-preview feature.

Pricing and rates displayed in the GA4 Usage preview mode are standard rates. Please note that the pricing displayed in GA4 Usage preview are not contractual rates and may vary by market.
