Depends on what you're trying to do. Botpress and Zapier are very different services

So Currently, I'm using Flowise hosted on Render which is about 7 dollars a month + Open AI credits around 10 dollars a month + Zapier around 30 dollars a month
If I had to do the same thing, a custom pdf/txt based chatbot on botpress
would it be cheaper
or expensive

Botpress is priced on user message volume, the first 1,000 monthly messages are free. So, depening on how many users you anticipate and how active they are, it can vary. We have a fun little pricing tool here https://botpress.com/pricing

as long as you're doing fewer than 1,000 messages per month, Botpress won't charge you anything. not sure about the messenger side, but I think they have a generous free tier, too
