Day #26 - All that glitters is not gold

October 14, 2020

My morning routine of checking email was not so pleasant today.

Apparently the viral tweet from yesterday had some side effects...

It was from the Vercel team and they informed my about their FREE plan restrictions.

Did you know that you can't host monetized products on Vercel inside their free plan?

I didn't and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

This policy is kinda "hidden" since it's not referred on their free plan's at all.

It's mentioned as a side note several section below.

An unfair game from Vercel, which made me shift my whole frontend codebase back to Netlify again.

It's not so much about the money. It's more about the tricky marketing game I got trapped into!!!
