To help you avoid surprise bills, PostHog enables you to set billing limits for each of our products. Setting a billing limit means we will stop ingesting and processing your data so you are not charged over the set limit. In other words, if you exceed the billing limit you set, your additional data is lost forever.

To set a billing limit:

  1. Go to your organization's billing settings
  2. View the billing limit section at the bottom of the product and click "Set billing limit."
  3. Set your dollar limit in the box and press "Save."

You’ll need to do this for each of the products. You can also remove limits by following the same process and clicking “Remove limit” instead of "Save."
