Commonly asked questions
Where do you ship?
We ship internationally across the world. Apart from a few limitations (including Iran, Libanon and North Korea), we ship everywhere.
Can I pay with a bank transfer / Paypal?
Sure. Just contact our sales team to setup an invoice for you.
What are the shipping terms?
The beacons are shipped as Carriage Paid To (CPT).
Does Proximi.io only work with the beacons that come along?
No, we work with all kinds of beacons that utilize iBeacon or Eddystone protocol. In order to make sure you get a good experience of the platform’s capabilities, we will ship you some beacons that we have tested and verified in the devkit. That will make the setting up of a test area much easier for you.
What if I have my own beacons already?
The devkit pricing only applies for projects that utilize the beacons that are pre-configured and verified by Proximi.io. If you are interested in utilizing your own custom beacons or some other 3rd party beacons, Proximi.io team needs to test and verify them first. Separate charge applies for this process.
We recommend that you start with the devkit experience, and move on to working with your own beacons or 3rd party beacons at the next stage, once you know how the Proximi.io platform works.
Is there recurring charges?
The devkit includes 3 months of license. After the license period ends, your subscription will automatically end, and there are no automatic charges made from your card. After the trial period you usually want to upgrade to a full project or enter into a Proximi.io Reseller Agreement. Discuss with our sales team to figure out what is the best match with your needs.
Do I have to pay customs on the beacons?
The beacons are shipped from EU. Depending on where you live, you may need to pay customs when the beacons are imported to your country. Your local customs/UPS will contact you and inform you about the payment method. Please note that the customs are payable by you.
What if I need more time to develop my app?
The idea of the devkit is to give you an opportunity to test out Proximi.io functionality and assess if it is a good match with your needs. When you are happy with the capability, talk with our sales team to figure out the best way to move forward. We would either upgrade you to a full license or a enter into a Proximi.io Reseller Agreement, based on your needs.
Is it possible to get more beacons / larger test area?
If you would need a larger test area, our sales team is happy to calculate you a POC proposal tailored to your needs. Just send us a message.
What if I need support during the development?
The devkit comes with documentation, online tutorials, videos and other materials to help you setup a test environment with the devkit. Additionally, the Proximi.io onboarding team is available for supporting your development team through the process.
