Our Simple Pricing

AISLER is simple manufacturing for your electronics project. We believe pricing should be simple and transparent, too. No hidden fees, just one fixed Job Fee and one variable fee. That’s it. We even built a ruby gem for you to play around with. Have a look on Github. If you just want to briefly grab your calculator, we’ve listed all pricing formulas here.

Please note: For simplicity, pricing formulas described here are net-price formulas. Please add respective attributable VAT where required (e.g. if you are a consumer). The formulas described here do not conclude an official offer, but are for informational purposes only.

Why we charge a Job Fee?

Every job your purchase comes with a fixed Job Fee. That fee varies depending on the product or service you order. It pays for the order’s overhead, which is:

  1. Selecting the best affordable local manufacturing partner that fits your project’s requirements
  2. Providing all required documents for the selected partner (which can be more complicated depending on the technology used)
  3. Controlling the quality of your job after it has been manufactured
  4. Shipping it to your location on time
  5. Ensuring the all accounting departments are happy
  6. Providing you with best-in-class support

Why we charge an area-usage or handling Fee

The variable fee allows us to provide you with a great quality circuit board, stencil or parts package, which includes:

  1. Selecting the right material, and choosing the most affordable distributors
  2. Ensure that only high quality machines are being used
  3. Pay the manufacturing operators a fair salary
  4. Ensure all processes are environmentally friendly to the highest standards

Beautiful Boards

PCB Price = Job Fee + Area x Area-usage Fee x Quantity

Minimum order quantity is always 3, you can order any Beautiful Board in sets of 3.

Service Job Fee Area-usage Fee
Budget :moneybag: 2-Layer € 6.00 € 0.042 per cm2
Blitz :zap: 2-Layer € 12.00 € 0.084 per cm2
HD 2-Layer € 6.00 € 0.084 per cm2
HD 4-Layer € 6.00 € 0.117 per cm2


2-Layer with Budget :moneybag:-Service with a PCB that is 7.0 cm x 5.0 cm:

Price = 6.00 € + 35 cm2 x 0.042 €/cm2 x 3 = € 10.41

Stellar Stencil

Stencil Price = Job Fee + Area x Area-usage Fee x Factordouble-sided

You can either order one side or two sides. This depends on whether you have two paste layers or only one. We’ll automatically adapt the factor.

Service Job Fee Area-usage Fee
Stellar Stencil € 5.00 € 0.095 per cm2


One-Side Stencil for a PCB that is 7.0 cm x 5.0 cm:

Price = 5.00 € + 35 cm2 x 0.095 €/cm2 x 1 = € 8.33

Amazing Assembly

Assembly Price = Beautiful Boards + Stellar Stencil + Parts + Assembly Fee

We will purchase all parts for your convenience and send them along. Making assembly pricing easy to understand is a bit more complicated. Our Checkout will include all components required (hence Beautiful Boards, Stellar Stencil, and Parts) plus the Assembly fee explained below:

Assembly Fee = Setup Fee + Handling Fee + Placement Fee

The Setup Fee pays for setting up the machines and loading the components, whereas the Handling fee pay for all supporting processes of the actual assembly (i.e. paste printer, reflow, etc), finally the Placement fee pays for the actual component placement on the boards.

Price Component Fee Cost Driver
Setup Fee € 5.00 Part Variance
Handling Fee € 0.01 Area x Quantity
Placement Fee € 0.04 Parts assigned x Quantity

If you want to calculate different assembly prices, best check our calculator at Amazing Assembly for your product.

I’ve uploaded a design that has a BOM of about E40,-, with 25 different components (excluding hidden components). I’d expect the assembly fee to be about 75 + 25*4.5 + small amount, say around E200,- max. However, on checkout, amazing assembly is listed for >E600,- ?

Any ideas what might be the reason for such a large difference?

Hi @0xa000 welcome to the community.

My best guess would be that you have components on two sides which doubles setup-costs. If you DM me your project url, we can have a look at it.

I have kept ordering PCBs from aisler for my study for a while. I have to say: Excellent job with fair price. I will surely keep supporting, and introduce you to others.
I have a question here related to the VAT-price. I normally ordered the PCBs directly from aisler, paid by myself, and got reimbursed from our financial office by submitting the invoices. But a few days ago, our financial office informed me that I have to get the VAT-free order for the future order, which means I should provide our VAT number to you, to get the PCB boards without paying VAT taxes (net-price only) (We are in Germany, within EU).
I am not really familiar with this kind of operation. So I would like to ask:

  1. Whether it could be achieve by simply inputing our VAT number in the “https://aisler.net/<my_username>/settings/invoicing” field, or I have to ask the quotation every time I place the order in the future.

  2. Whether is it possible to pay by invoice, so I do not have to be involved into the endless reimbursement process.

Thanks in advance for your reply!

Hi @sheng, welcome to the community and thanks for referring us to others, we highly appreciate that!

Regarding VAT, have you checked: VAT-free invoices because there are certain rules that we legally have to abide to (for example, if you are located in Germany for example, we have to charge 19% VAT even if you are a business).

However, I think what you are looking for is a business account, you can setup one just simply by clicking the "+ Add new team " link on the Team picker in the top left corner of your account (this is a dropdown). Then you can click business and we will guide you through the process of setting that account up properly.

Regarding paying by invoice, check this article: Charge on Account

Hallo, ich hab auch mal eine Frage. Es geht um die Bestückung. Hab bei Fritzing die Bauteile angegeben, wenn ich es nun hochlade zum bestellen zeigt er mir zwar die Stückliste an aber keinen Preis. Ich steh gerade auf dem Schlach :smiley: wollte eigentlich PCB bestückt bestellen.
Liebe Grüße

Hi @info-evilware-de, welcome to the community.

You are asking why assigned parts in Fritzing don’t immediately translate to a pricing in AISLER’s BOM.

This can have several reasons, the major one being that you didn’t specify MPN and manufacturer in the respective fields. Do that and we automatically assign the parts and give you a quote for assembly.

The second reason can be that (given you have done the above) some of the parts are not available from our standard distributors which are Farnell, Digikey, and Mouser. If you are a business, and want German support you can fill in the assembly request form here and we’ll get back with you immediately. Be sure you are logged in because then you can directly select the project you want assembled.

Our support speaks German, so you can direct questions in German language. Our Community is international hence this post is in English for everyone.

I hope this helps you!

Hallo, ich arbeite mit Fritzing. Ich habe dort nun entsprechend den Bauteilen die Herstellernummer von Farnell eingegeben. Aber wenn ich es hochlade zeigt er mit zwar unter Parts Value an 4.7k aber sonst nichts. Gibt es da Probleme mit Fritzing und Aisler Spezifisch der Herstellernummer etz.?

Здравейте @christina,

Бих искал да ви попитам дали е възможно ускоряването на производствения процес(и цената разбира се) до 3 дни? По принцип в нашата развойна дейност ни трябват бързи проверки на проектираното изделие в малки количества - обикновено 6-9 броя платки и експресна доставка, така, че до 6-7 дни да получим готовия продукт.

Hi @christina,

I would like to ask you if it is possible to speed up the production process (and the price of course) to 3 days? In general, in our development activity we need quick inspections of the designed product in small quantities - usually 6-9 boards and express delivery, so that within 6-7 days we receive the finished product.
