On February 16, 2021, our new Individual and Business plans replaced our legacy Launch, Grow, and Scale plans on our pricing page. To learn more about why we made these changes and what they entail, start with our Help Article here.

Included with Individual plans ($9 per month with an annual subscription, or $19 per month with a monthly subscription):

  • Five million credits (or messages) per month.

  • One API token.

  • One user login.

  • Additional features, such as free access to Cloud Cache. More detail coming soon.

  • Both commercial and personal use.

Included with Business plans ($199 per month with an annual subscription, or $299 per month with a monthly subscription):

  • 150 million credits (or messages) per month.

  • Four API tokens.

  • Four user logins.

  • Full feature access – everything included with Individual plus more. More detail coming soon.

  • Both commercial and personal use.

Each plan provides the following:

  • Credits (previously called messages): Use credits to make more API calls and request more data from IEX Cloud. Learn more about credits.

  • Tokens: Tokens connect your project or application to your account. You can track, control, and throttle data usage by token. Examples of when you’ll use multiple tokens include using IEX Cloud to support multiple applications, projects, teams, or user accounts. For instance, if you support three applications, you would likely use a different token for each app. Learn more about tokens.

  • User logins: Adding user logins to your plan adds room for more teammates to join your IEX Cloud account and use its data.

If you need to add more credits, API tokens, or user logins to your account, you can upgrade your plan or add packages.

What are packages?

Packages make it easier to customize your IEX Cloud plan according to your use case, so that your plan scales with you as you grow. For users of legacy plans switching to our new Individual and Business plans, they also replace overages.

When signing up for a paid subscription, you’ll begin by selecting a plan: Individual or Business. Next, you can add packages. You can also add packages as you need them throughout your plan’s term.

Add packages to your plan to receive more of the following each month:

  • Credits (previously called messages): included in packages for both Individual and Business plans. Learn more about credits.

  • Tokens: Included in packages for Business plans. Learn more about tokens.

  • User logins: Included in packages for Business plans.

You can both add and remove packages from your plan as you need. Once you add a package, it will be added to your plan for each subsequent month by default. If you remove a package from your plan, it expires at the end of the current month. Packages can be removed or added month to month for both monthly and annual plans.

Unused credits at the end of each month (whether they’re from your base plan or a package) do not roll over into the next month.

Packages cannot be added to free Start plans or to legacy Launch, Grow, and Scale plans. To use packages, you will need to upgrade or switch to the Individual or Business plan.

Learn more about packages – including how they’re billed, what’s included with each package, and more in our article here, “What are packages?”

How do overages work with the new plans?

IEX Cloud users on legacy plans will be familiar with the concept of pay-as-you-go messages (now pay-as-you-go credits). Instead of paying overages this way at the end of each month using pay-as-you-go credits, to use additional credits with the updated pricing plans, you’ll either purchase packages or upgrade to expand your plan’s usage. We replaced overages with packages based on user feedback, with the goal of providing a simpler, more transparent way of scaling your plan with your usage.

If you reach your plan’s monthly credit limits, we will notify you via email with instructions on how to add packages to your plan. To prevent disruption, we suggest periodically checking your credit usage in the Console as well as purchasing packages in advance if you anticipate needing to use additional credits. When you reach your monthly credit limit, access to data will be temporarily paused until more credits are added to your plan or the next month begins.

I’m new to IEX Cloud. Which plan is best for me?

  • The Individual plan: This plan is ideal for personal use, projects, students, building basic applications, testing, freelancers, and light use.

  • The Business plan: This plan allows for more scale and flexibility for growing technology companies and larger enterprises. With more credits, tokens, and user logins, it’s built to help growing Fintechs scale, bring flexibility to how firms build, and make it easier to integrate IEX Cloud into your team’s workflow. In addition, there are even more features coming to our Business plan throughout 2021 that you won’t want to miss. Stay tuned for more details!

Both plans can be used for personal or commercial use. For more information on our acceptable uses of the platform, please review our Terms of Use.
