Note: our API access will remain free. This message regards very high API use by some consumers.
Our API and related services currently cost us (more specifically me, via my small business - with some Microsoft Azure credits that run out in November) more than $600 per month ($889 this month, plus miscellaneous services), yet our service still struggles under load when enough people are consuming the API services.
If your organisation is using our API regularly please consider purchasing a subscription with us either for unlimited API usage or as a Silver Sponsor (we will then optionally add your company to a list of sponsors):
API Unlimited Usage/Silver Sponsor:
Unlimited API Usage: Stripe Checkout
Sponsorships will go directly to infrastructure costs or external development costs for service optimisation.
Our API will remain free, sponsorship is voluntary unless you need very high use contrary to our fair usage terms.
