Note: ZenHub's full feature set is unlocked when you connect your GitHub Organization to ZenHub

ZenHub strongly believes in the importance of open source in today’s software world and supporting diversity initiatives in open source. We’re proud to offer our platform free of charge to open source and public organizations. Over 4,400 open source projects already trust ZenHub to help centralize their work, improve collaboration, and provide greater transparency into project progress and release plans.


If you use 100% Public Repositories, just start using ZenHub, you will not be charged.


If you have private repositories in your Open Source Project, we will need you to authorize your account with ZenHub by signing up either with the extension or web app, and visiting a ZenHub Workspace that is connected to a private repo. Visiting a private repo in your organization will trigger a trial of ZenHub. 


Once the trial is initiated, request a discount. To request free access, email us with the following:

  • Your GitHub organization name:
  • Description of your Open Source Project
  • Confirmation that your project is licensed under a license approved by the Open Source Initiative
  • Confirmation that you've initiated a trial and received the trial kick-off email


Once we apply the discount, you'll also need to subscribe to ZenHub so when the trial is over, the subscription is set as valid so no one gets blocked from access. The instructions for subscribing can be found here


You can subscribe to a plan at anytime during the trial, entering a valid credit card. You won't be charged once the trial is over. We'll assign the discount during the trial so there will be a $0 invoice post-trial.
