A summary of the current plans, with features and prices. You can purchase them here:
There are 2 mainstream plans: Basic for $10/month and Standard for $30/month. Standard benefits from having access to 'relax' time and more than 4 times as much 'fast' time: go here to learn more about 'fast' and 'relax' time. Both can add the Private visibility option for $20/month.
Are you using MidJourney as an employee for a company with over $1Million/year in gross revenue? If so, you need to choose the Corporate plan for $600/year. This plan is similar to a yearly version of Standard+Private with reduced fast hours and a license to allow use at large companies.

Both Basic and Standard Plans offer:

  • Monthly subscription. Will renew automatically after 30 days by default (which can be toggled off)
  • The ability to DM (Direct Message) the MidJourney Bot (your images will still appear in the public gallery unless you add /private to your subscription).
  • The ability to purchase private-by-default mode by using the /private command on Discord and adding $20/month to your subscription. Private images will still be on your gallery on the website, except they're hidden from other users and they'll remain hidden even after you discontinue private mode.
  • Fast mode. You can buy more 'fast' minutes for $4/60min by turning on metered incremental billing (use /fast to purchase fast hours).
  • Once you've successfully upgraded you'll see a new "basic member" or "member" role on your Discord profile, which will give you access to all of our community channels.
  • Access to community feeds and galleries at
  • Restricted commercial usage; learn more about it here.

Basic Membership ($10/month) offers:

  • You'll be able to run ~200 jobs every month. To be more specific, your available 'fast' time is set to 200 GPU minutes every time you purchase or renew this plan.
  • No access to relax mode
  • You can upgrade your plan at any time under /subscribe. You will receive a discount proportional to the GPU minutes you haven't used. For example, you'll receive a $5 discount if you used 100 out of your 200 minutes.

Standard Membership ($30/month) offers:

  • Your available 'fast' time is set to 15 GPU hours (900 GPU minutes) every time you purchase or renew this plan. This is 4.5 times as much GPU time when compared to Basic.
  • You now have access to 'relax' mode, which allows you to run unlimited jobs in exchange for longer wait times. While in 'relax' mode, you won't be able to run 'Upscale to Max' jobs.
  • 'Fast' mode is enabled by default for new subscribers but you can switch between 'relax' or 'fast' at any time by using the /relax and /fast commands.

Private Visibility Option (+$20/month)

  • All plans can work in Direct Messages (DMs) with the MidJourney Bot. With Private visibility, private images on your gallery on the website will be hidden from other users and they'll remain hidden even after you discontinue private mode.
  • Private mode is still subject to the PG-13 rules of content generation, however.
  • While paying for Private visibility, you'll also be able to publish or unpublish images in your gallery through
    -shaped buttons. If you don't see them, you will need to log out from the website and then log back in.

Incremental Billing ($4 for 60 GPU minutes)

  • All paid plans can purchase more 'fast' minutes with incremental billing, which is also known as metered fast time. Once you have exhausted the 'fast' time on your plan, you'll be given the option to activate incremental billing at a rate of $4 per GPU hour. You can use the /fast command to have this option appear once again.
  • Before activating fast time you have to set a 'spending limit'. When you hit the spending limit, MidJourney will stop you and ask you to set a new one before continuing.
  • You will only be charged for the time you've actually used. For example, if you set a spending limit of $20 but you only use $17.32 in metered GPU minutes, you'll only be billed for $17.32.
  • You can use /info at any time to see how many metered fast minutes you've used this billing cycle, along with their cost in USD.
  • Incremental billing will be charged either at the end of the month for your subscription or every time you hit the billing threshold. This threshold is equal to the renewal price of your current plan, such as $30 for the Standard plan.

Corporate Membership ($600/year) offers:

  • You will be able to use images commercially as an employee for a company with over $1Million/year in gross revenue.
  • Your available 'fast' time is set to 120 GPU hours (7,200 GPU minutes) every time you purchase or renew this plan. This is 2/3rds as much GPU time when compared to a full year of Standard.
  • All the same features as the Standard Membership plan.
  • All the same features as the Private visibility Option, at no additional cost.
