  • What is MRR? How do I calculate it?

    MRR (Monthly Recurring Revenue) is the predictable revenue a business can expect to receive every month. It is calculated by taking into account only the recurring charges from a subscription.
    MRR for a subscription business can be calculated by summing up the recurring revenue from each customer for a month. Please note that one-time charges or setup fees should not be included in this calculation.
    For example: If you have customer A with a subscription plan at $20/month and another customer B at $60/month. Then your MRR would be:
    MRR = (20+60) = $80
    Let's take an example with a combination of monthly and yearly plans.
    For example: If you have a customer A with a plan at $2500/month and a customer B on $36000/year. Then your MRR would be:
    MRR = [2500 + (36000/12)] = $2800

  • How to calculate revenue growth?
