Credits and rate limit


The Exorde API uses monthly or yearly subscriptions. Periods are billed in advance. For example, if you subscribe to a monthly plan on the 15th of the month, you will be billed immediately for the current month and then on the 15th of each month.

The billing cycle is defined when you subscribe to an API plan. You can change it any time, it will be effective on the next billing date.

You can change your payment method and retrieving invoices in the developer portal.


Exorde doesn't store any credit card information. All payments are processed by Stripe.

API plan subscription update

You can upgrade, downgrade or cancel your subscription any time from the developer portal:

  • Upgrade: the new subscription will be effective immediately and current period will be billed prorata. For example, if you upgrade from a monthly starter plan to a monthly pro plan, you will be billed the difference between the two plans for the remaining days of the current month.


    If you keep the same billing cycle, the billing date doesn't change. If you change the billing cycle, the billing date will be the day of the upgrade.

  • Downgrade or cancel: it will be effective on the next billing date. For example, if you downgrade from a monthly pro plan to a monthly starter plan, the downgrade will be effective on the next billing date.

  • Change the billing cycle (monthly or yearly): it will be effective on the next billing date.

API consumption

Monthly credits

All API plans include an amount of credits reset every month, limiting the the number of calls that can be made monthly. All successful request (HTTP Status 200) cost one or several credits. The cost depends on the operation, it is documented in operation's description. The cost is also returned with the data, see the status object for details.

Credits are reset at 00:00 UTC on the billing date.

You can log in your Exorde account or use the API to monitor your API key usage and limits.


All errors caused by a misfunctioning client (HTTP Status 400 and 404) cost one credit.

Rate limit

In addition to monthly credit limit, a rate limit is applied to protect the Exorde API. This is a hard limit depending on your API plan and cannot be overridden.
