What is API credit?

API credit is an internal entity used for billing and cost metering. It allows differentiating API requests with different parameters, complexity, and pricing.

API credits amount

Each subscription plan contains a particular amount of API credits that can be used during the subscription period. Unused API credits are not transferred to the next subscription period.

Request cost

Each API request price can be found in the following table:
