Token Allowances

Free users have a daily allowance of 150 Tokens. If you are on the free tier, your Token allowance is reset every 24 hours. If you are on a paid plan, your allowance will be according to your plan and is reset every month.

Paid Plans

If you are on a paid plan, you have access to your full monthly Token allowance at any time, and your allowance will reset each month. This means that you can use your Tokens at your own pace and have access to the platform's premium features throughout the month.

⚠️ Unused Tokens expire at the end of the billing period and do not carry over.

Relaxed Generation Queue

This applies to users on either the Artisan or Maestro plan. When these users run out of Tokens, they can still generate, but with slow processing.

Upgrading Your Plan

If you require more Tokens than what is available on your current plan, you can upgrade your plan to gain access to more Tokens.

Simply visit https://app.leonardo.ai/buy to see the available plans and select the one that best suits your needs.
