Absolutely. First off, this is only a limit for prospective buyers; it caps the number of sample-requests the user can initiate per month (check out this help article to learn more about requesting samples). There is no limit to the number of samples that a seller can ship out, ever.
The difference between "5 Samples per Month" and "Unlimited Sample Requests":
If you, as a prospective buyer, elect to subscribe to the Basic plan (or 14-day free trial), you will be limited to 5 sample-requests each month. Some special notes:
- If a seller fails to respond to your sample request and it auto-archives after 10 days, a "credit" will be returned to you that you may leverage to request an additional sample within the same month-long period.
- Upon submitting a sample-request that generates a unique "Sample Request Manager": further samples arranged between you and the respective seller within the Sample Request Manager do not count against your limit (check out this video to learn more about Sample Request Managers).
By contrast, if to subscribe to the Pro plan, you will have no limit on the number of samples you may request*.
