Asset storage or flat-rate
When adding a premium asset, you can choose between using your asset storage or by making a flat-rate payment. Read Asset storage or flat-rate payment to learn more.
Briefly, the difference between Asset Storage and Flat-Rate is that Asset Storage is more affordable if you don't plan to keep your assets on Nira for a long time (e.g., a year or more). Also, Asset Storage is more flexible in that you can add or replace data whereas Flat-Rate assets are locked from this kind of editing. In summary, only choose Flat-Rate if you're happy with the asset as-is and you plan to keep it on Nira for more than a year.
Business and Enterprise plans include some storage
Business and Enterprise plans include some initial storage pool capacity.
Can be private, and are private by default
Unlike Gallery assets, Premium assets can be private, and they are private by default. To learn how to control access to your Premium assets, see Asset Visibility - Private, Publicly Accessible, or Password Protected. Additionally, the Users tab allows for user-based access control (Business and Enterprise plans only).
