General Billing Questions

Am I locked into a long-term contract?
No, cancel whenever you like for any reason.
Are there any setup fees?
No.
Are there any hidden fees?
No.
How does OpenCage pricing compare with Google Maps geocoding pricing?
We're much more affordable and customer-friendly (no surge pricing). Here's a detailed pricing comparison with numbers.
Can I specify a different e-mail for billing matters and payment confirmations?
Yes, you can have the payment confirmation go to one or more other e-mail addresses, for example your accounting department. Billing matters do not have to go to the e-mail you used when you registered.
Will prices rise in the future?
We have not changed our prices since 2015 and have no plans to do so. Nevertheless, we are happy to commit that if we ever were to raises prices all existing customers will continue to pay the old prices.
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.
I need a contract or something similar to get internal purchasing approval.
Upon request we can gladly supply a service description that meets your needs to any prospective Medium, Large, or Enterprise subscription customer.
What sort of SLA can you offer?
We pride ourselves on our reliability, and target 100% uptime with no scheduled maintenance windows. We use independent, 3rd-party monitoring to measure uptime of our site and API, please have a look at our recent performance.

Please see our performance report for 2021 and 2020. If you have particularly demanding requirements a custom written SLA is available for our enterprise offering.

If in doubt please get in touch, we work with hundreds of customers large and small around the world, and feel confident we can deliver a solution that works for you.
What if I forget to cancel my subscription?
Please get in touch with us. As long as you have not been using the service excessively we will gladly refund your most recent billing period.

We do not win by tricking you, we win by being a stable, dependable, long-term partner for our clients.
What about VAT?
All prices are inclusive of any applicable VAT. We are a German business, our VAT number is DE323788688. You will receive a valid VAT invoice by e-mail for each purchase.
What will my invoice or proof of purchase look like?
For each purchase you will receive a pdf invoice by e-mail. You can specify who receives the mail. You can download an example payment confirmation here. We can add whatever tax code your country requires.

You can access old invoices in your account dashboard anytime.
I need a Tax Residency Certificate or US W-8BEN-E form.
Sure, no problem, we can gladly provide those.
What form of payments do you accept?
We accept all major credit cards, billing is done via payment processor Stripe (See detailed security information). We never see or store your credit card number.

After you stop being a customer you can, with a single click, delete your payment information.

In some European countries we also accept other bank debit payment methods for one-time purchases.

As part of our relationship with Stripe, we contribute 1% of the revenue they process for us to fund next-generation carbon removal technologies (details).

For large and medium annual subscriptions, we can invoice you.

We are working on supporting other payment methods. If paying by credit card is stopping you from becoming a customer please get in touch and we will find a solution.
Have more questions?
No problem. Please see the general FAQ or contact us.

Prefer to talk with a person? Great, please schedule a time that works for you.

Geocoding API billing questions

Do I need to provide a credit card to sign-up for the free trial?
No.
How long can I use the geocoding free trial?
As long as you need for testing. That is what the free trial is there for. If you decide to use our service in production you should become a paying customer. Please note: inactive free trial accounts are deleted after six months.
Can I just use multiple free trial accounts?
No, don't do that. The free trial is a way to test our service - do not use it for anything mission critical. If you need production level reliability, become a customer.
Will I need to change API key after I become a customer?
No, you can keep using the same API key. Or create a new API key if you prefer. Subscription customers can have multiple active keys.
What if I go over my daily API request limit?
As a subscription customer, when you reach your limit we do ... nothing. Everything keeps working, there is no additional surge or usage based pricing. Our limits are "soft". If you need more requests on a given day, that is fine, you can keep geocoding. If you cross the limit repeatedly then the following month we will ask you to move to the next higher tier.
Can I downgrade or cancel my plan if I no longer need so much?
Yes, you can switch whenever you like, for any reason. You'll still have full access until the end of the current billing period.
Can I just send you a file, and you do the geocoding for me?
In that case we would have to charge you for our most valuable resource: our engineering time, which is expensive.

If you don't have the ability to use the API yourself please see our Excel and Google Sheets tutorials. Another option is to work with our partners at Clean Spreadsheets who will gladly do the geocoding for you.
How does one-time geocoding API pricing work?
You can purchase a Small, Medium, or Large one-time plan, depending on your needs. You can then use those requests as and when you like.
What is the difference between purchasing a subscription and purchasing a one-time geocoding plan?
There is absolutely no difference in the quality or speed of the API results.

There are several differences:

A. Subscription customers do not have hard limits, they can go beyond the daily limit whenever they need to (please see above).

B. Because they will be using our service over a longer period of time we offer subscription customers the ability to do things like set up IP restriction and to set a CORS header.
What happens when I reach my one-time limit?
Once you have used up your requests your account will reset to the free trial.
How can I see how many requests I have made?
For one-time plan customers each API response will return the number of requests you have remaining. Please see the details in the rate-limiting section of the documentation.
Do bad requests or requests with no results count as requests?
Yes, every request counts as it generates work for us. Please test first with the free trial and make sure you understand how our API works before you start geocoding at high volume.
I bought a one-time plan, but realize now I need a subscription. What should I do?
No problem, please get in touch with us, and we will transition you to a subscription and apply a credit equivalent to the unused portion of your one-time plan.

Geosearch billing questions

My site has almost no users, can I use geosearch for free?
No, maintaining the service costs us a lot of time and energy. We can not provide it for free. Becoming a customer also helps support us in giving back to the open data and open source communities.
Is there a free trial for geosearch?
No, you can test the autosuggest capability on our site.
