Pricing FAQ

Can I get started for free?

Yes! All accounts receive 5,000 free credits that reload automatically every 30-days. In addition, we offer all new users an additional 5,000 credits to use at any time.

Do I need a credit card to sign up?

Nope. Simply sign-up and started making API calls today.

What’s the cost to run an algorithm?

All algorithms are charged a fee of 1 credit-per-second of execution time. Algorithm developers may charge an additionally royalty per call, which is specific to the version of the algorithm and guaranteed in perpetuity.

What is a credit worth?

The exchange rate for credits is 10,000 credits to $1 USD.

What happens if I run out of credits?

If you’ve purchased credits and have enabled auto-reload, you will be billed when your account balance reaches zero remaining credits.

If you don’t enable auto-reload or are on our Free Forever plan, you’ll receive alerts that your account balance is insufficient. To resume making API calls, simply purchase additional credits, or wait until your free credits reload at the end of your cycle.

Can I rollover unused credits?

Credits you’ve purchased never expire, and can be used at any time. The 5,000 free credits you receive every 30-days do not rollover or accumulate in any way.

How do I buy credits?

From your Account page, select Purchase Credits. We offer two base packages: 200,000 credits for $20, and 1MM credits with a 10% bonus for $100. Need volume pricing? Contact us.

How do I get billed?

We charge your credit card at the time of purchase. If you enable auto-reload, you will be billed when your account balance reaches zero remaining credits, so that your API calls continue uninterrupted.

I’m an algorithm developer, can I spend the credits I earn?

Yes! Earned credits can be used to call any algorithm at any time.

Where can I see my usage metrics?

A detailed transaction log, available credits, and more are available under the Account tab on your Profile page.
