Credits and Requests

Every time you make a request, you consume credits. The credits you have available are defined by the plan you are currently using. The amount of credits you consume depends on the domain and parameters you add to your request.

Domains

We have created custom scrapers to target these sites, if you scrape one of these domain categories you will activate this scraper and the credit cost will change.

Geotargeting is included in these credit costs.

If your domain is not in this list, it will cost 1 credit if no additional parameters are added.

We highly recommend using our API Playground before scraping to understand the cost per request will be.

Response Headers

Our Response Headers to each request will contain cost information on how many credits were spent on such a request: sa-credit-cost


Parameters

According to your needs, you may want to access different features on our platform.

premium=true – requests cost 10 credits

render=true – requests cost 10 credits

premium=true + render=true – requests cost 25 credits

ultra_premium=true – requests cost 30 credits*

ultra_premium=true + render=true – requests cost 75 credits*

In any requests, with or without these parameters, we will only charge for successful requests (200 and 404 status codes) and for requests that have been cancelled from your side before giving us enough time to finish them (50 seconds). If you run out of credits sooner than planned, you can renew your subscription early as explained in the section titled "Dashboard".

*Accounts that have discounted pricing will have a higher credit cost per M for our Ultra Premium domains to meet our minimum pricing of $3 per one thousand requests without rendering and $7 with rendered pages.
