With Atlist you only pay for what you use.
Atlist plans are on a 30-day period. Within that period, you get a certain amount of included views (for example: 1,000). You pay $0.009 for each additional view that goes over your included views.
Once your 30 day period completes your views reset to zero.
This is commonly called usage pricing.
It's pretty simple: Atlist pays Google an API fee every time a map is loaded.
Over time we've discovered that some Atlist users create very popular maps— which is great— but can also be expensive for us.
We think usage pricing aligns incentives by connecting price to usage.
Here is a comparison of the prices between Atlist and the Google Maps API:
You will be notified by email anytime you go over included views for the period.
You can view current usage anytime in Billing.
You will be billed every time you hit $45 in usage or at the end of your billing cycle.
Unfortunately Atlist does not have annual billing at this time.
