What is a request?
A request is any HTTPS request that you make with your API key to any of our endpoints. The parameters you provide, or the number of results you get back, do not affect your request count. Some endpoints offer the option to do multiple queries in a single request.
What happens if I exceed the requests quota?
You'll receive an error as response with the appropriate HTTP status code. Then you can decide what to do. Upgrade your subscription or pause usage until the next billing cycle.
What plan do I choose to parse a large list of names?
Choose the 'Enterprise' plan if you want to run a large batch process. With this plan you can do 10 queries in a single request at a speed of 500 request per hour resulting in 120.000 request per day. Need more speed? You can always sign up for a second account.
How do I switch to a different plan?
You can switch to a new plan (higher or lower) at any time. Login and select the plan you’d like to switch to on this page. You can immediately start using new limits and features.
Can I cancel at any time?
Of course! When you cancel, your plan will run until the end of the current paid period and you won't be charged again. Then you will automatically be switched back to the 'Developer' plan.
