Plans, Pricing & Payment

Which subscription plan fits my needs?

The most important factor you need to take into account when choosing a subscription plan is the number of allowed monthly API requests. If your volume exceeds 10,000 requests and/or you require more accurate, intraday data with regular updates, you will need to choose at least the Business Plan.

Which payment methods are supported?

Payments can be made via credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express). Enterprise and high-volume customers may request annual bank transfer payments to be enabled. You can change your payment method at any given time in the "Plan & Billing" page of your account dashboard.

Is my payment information secure?

Credit cards are processed through a PCI compliant banking partner.

When will I be billed?

We charge your credit card upon subscription to an API's plan and at the next recurring interval.

Can I also pay yearly?

Yes. If you choose annual billing, the total price of your subscription plan will be 20% lower than the total amount you would pay with a monthly payment frequency.
