About Amberflo
Amberflo is transforming how companies charge for their products and services by making it easy to track and bill on usage. Amberflo has created the world’s first fully-featured and fully-managed Cloud Metering and Usage-Based Pricing and Billing Platform.

Companies, big and small, are shifting to Usage-Based Pricing and Billing to realize higher renewal rates, customer satisfaction, and revenue. Amberflo’s platform provides real-time and accurate metering at scale, as well as flexible building and operating Usage-Based Pricing Plans with on-demand, metered invoicing and billing. Customers, like LaunchDarkly,,, etc., use Amberflo to power their end-to-end monetization infrastructure from metering to billing.

Amberflo was founded in 2020 by former AWS technologists who built and scaled cloud services on the backs of Usage-Based Pricing (UBP) and Product-Led Growth (PLG). Headquartered in the Bay Area with employees around the world, Amberflo raised $20M Series A led by Norwest Venture Partners.
