Whether you're just starting out or looking to scale up, our API has got you covered. Sign up today and join our community of innovators. With a Free pricing plan, you get 1,000 elements every month to test all the features of the API. You don’t need to fill in the credit card detail, so you have the easiest way to start using the product without having to pay.
By using the Geocoding API alongside other Distancematrix.ai products with the Growth package, you can enjoy unlimited usage of elements per month with post-payment, a $50 one-time bonus, and access to all products. Additionally, the pricing tiers for the Geocoding API range from $2 to $1 per 1,000 elements, making it an affordable option for businesses that need to use the API. With no monthly payments, you only pay for the number of elements you use each month. This model is flexible, cost-effective, and makes it easier for businesses to control their expenses.
The cost of using the Geocoding API is based on the number of elements you use each month. The pricing tiers range from $2 per 1,000 elements for 1-100,000 elements to $1 per 1,000 elements for more than 500,000 elements. If you use even more elements per month, you can contact the team for better pricing.
This pay-as-you-go Geocoding pricing model is affordable and allows businesses to manage their costs effectively based on their usage.
Additionally, with the Growth package, you can enjoy unlimited usage of elements per month with post-payment. After you upgrade from the Free pricing plan to the Growth package, you also get a $50 one-time bonus that will be used for the first elements you use. Both with a Free package and the Growth package, you get access to all Distancematrix.ai products.
The pricing structure is transparent and flexible, and you can avoid monthly payments, making it a great option for businesses of all sizes. There are also no hidden costs and no extra payments. You will monitor all the expenses on the dashboard after you log in.
The model is very similar to Google Geolocation API pricing. There are no usage limits for the Geocoding API under the Growth package. Businesses can enjoy unlimited usage of elements per month with post-payment. This pricing structure allows you to pay only for what you use, without worrying about hitting any usage limits.
Talking about the Free package, it provides access to 1,000 elements per month. So here you have a limit every month. This package is for testing our APIs, so in case you want to continue using our API and need more elements than 1,000 you're supposed to upgrade your account to Growth.
With the Growth package, you can access all the features of the Geocoding API without any restrictions on the number of elements used. The pricing tiers are also flexible, allowing you to optimize your expenses and scale your geocoding needs as your business grows. As to the limits on requests, synchronous requests are limited to 100 epr (elements per request). Asynchronous requests do not have such limits and allow for building large matrices, but the response time is significantly slower at 1-5 elements per second.
The usage of the Geocoding API is calculated based on the number of elements used each month. An element is defined as a single geocode or reverse geocode request, which means that each request to the API counts as one element.
When you use the Geocoding API, your usage is tracked, and at the end of the month, you will receive a bill based on the number of elements used. The cost of each element depends on the pricing tier that you fall into, based on your monthly usage.
For example, if you used 387,000 elements in a month, the Geocoding API cost would be the following:
Distancematrix.ai provides businesses with a convenient and transparent billing process that allows them to monitor their usage and control their expenses. The post-payment feature of the Growth package also means that businesses only pay for what they use, without having to commit to any monthly payment.
The Free plan has a limit of 1,000 elements per month, and users who exceed this limit will need to upgrade to a paid plan, such as the Growth plan. In the Growth plan, there are no usage limits, so users do not need to worry about exceeding any limits or incurring penalties. You will be able to monitor your usage of elements in the admin panel.
Users will be billed at the end of the billing month based on the number of elements used. If the payment is not made, you won’t be able to use the API until you pay off the debt.So the pricing model is similar to Google Geolocation API cost. There are no penalties, you pay as you go. But to ensure fair usage of the service, we have to limit the Free plan with 1,000 elements per month.
