What does "no surge pricing" mean?
Most cloud API providers have hard limits. When you hit your usage limit
either the service is turned off, or you are charged a high, often
unexpected, overage fee.
This does not happen with us: when customers need more - for example
during a short-term spike - they can use more. Our pricing is based on
your daily average over the course of the month. If every day you are
over your average then we will ask you to move to the appropriate pricing
tier for your needs from the next billing period. But you will never have
an unexpected charge.
We do not win by charging customers a bit more when they need a bit more.
We win by being a stable, long-term partner for our customers.
What do you mean by "month"?
Your month begins on the day you purchase and the next month is
billed on the same day the following month. As an example, if you
become a customer on February 19th, your card will next be billed
on March 19th.
