All services are billed automatically at the start of the plan month. You will be billed the monthly amount based on the tier you select.
If you upgrade in the middle of a plan month, you will be charged a pro-rated amount based on how much time left in the month there is. You can read more about our api billing policies here.
If I don't actively use the API, will I still be billed?
Yes. We don't currently have a use-based pricing. All billing is monthly. You may also downgrade if you find that you are not using the Weather API as much.
What plan should I choose?
If you're not sure, we recommend that you start small and work your way up. You can always upgrade as your Weather API needs grow!
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. All payment processing/billing is handled by are handled by a 3rd party (Stripe)
What happens if I exceed my plan's quotas?
The Weather API will return an HTTP 429 error. For our Advanced/Enterprise users, we allow you to "burst" above your quota by as much as 10% (with slower response times) during periods of exceptionally high traffic. If you find that you are constantly running into the quota, we recommend you upgrade your plan tier!
Do you offer a trial period?
Yes! Sign up for the "Free" Weather API tier! *The Free plan is free for non-commercial use. However, historical data access is only available on a trial basis for 21 days after enrollment. After the trial period, the historical data feature will be disabled.
