Pricing & Billing FAQ
What if I go over my limit?
If you are on the free trial, when you hit 2,500 requests in a day you begin to receive a 402 HTTP response code. See the details in the API docs. If however you are a paying customer, when you reach your limit we do ... nothing. The limits are "soft" in that if you need more requests on a given day, nothing happens, you can keep geocoding. If you cross the limit repeatedly then the following month we ask you to move to the next higher tier.
What form of payments do you accept?
We accept all major credit cards, billing/invoicing is done via payment processor Stripe (See detailed security information). OpenCage never sees or accesses your credit card number. For large and medium annual plans, 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.
How long can I use the free trial?
As long as you like. Note though that inactive accounts get 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.
What sort of SLA can you offer?
We pride ourselves on our reliability. Over the last year the service has had 99.9% uptime. We use independent, 3rd-party monitoring to measure uptime of our site and API, have a look at our recent performance. If you have some particularly demanding requirements let us know. We like a challenge.
Do you offer one-off geocoding?
It depends. If it is not urgent we encourage you to purchase a monthly plan and then cancel after you've finished. If it is urgent please contact us.
Am I locked into a long-term contract?
Are there any setup fees?
Are there any hidden fees?
Do I need to provide a credit card to sign-up for the free tier?
Can I downgrade or cancel my plan if I no longer need so much?
