Do our services have usage fees?
No, and yes. It depends on how much geocoding you need to do. The vast majority of our users never pay to use out services.
Our services are provided free of charge in allotments of 2500 transactions.
All we ask is that you
cite us in your work
add a link to us on your website. Unfortunately citations or links visible to only internal operations do not
meet the objective of the partners program.
How do you get credits to use the services?
When you sign up with our site, you are allotted 2500 credits.
If you use all of your credits, don't sweat it. There are several ways you can get more. Keep reading.
Step number one to get more credits - Sign up as a partner.
Signing up as a partner means that you can add batches of 2500 credits
as frequently and whenever you want. You just have to come back to our site and click a button in your account. It's free to join, you just have to link to our site from yours, or cite us in your work if a link is not possible.

If you don't want to click a button all the time, what should you do?
If you are a partner who would rather not have to manually add more credits by continually requesting them through the site,
or you need to process more records than are allocated in batches under the partner program, or you are a user
who would just like to donate some money to help improve our services, you can purchase credits
online using your credit card or PayPal accounts according to the following payment rates. Once you
signup and/or login, you will be able to make your purchases from this payment page.

Do we throttle our services?
Yes, in a way. We throttle the free usage of our services to batches of 2500 records at a time to ensure that all free users
get the same level of service given our available computing resources.
Users who sign up as partners can process as many records as they like, they just need to re-fill their account by submitting a form
from within their account once their balance drops below 2500 records.

Do you have an account that keeps track of your credits?
Yes. We keep track of how much each service is being utilized on a per-user, per-transaction basis.
To do this, we maintain a system of credits and transactions. In order to use the services you must have a positive
balance of credits associated with your account. Each time you use a service it is considered one transaction and one
credit is deducted from your account's balance.

What kind of prices are you going to be looking at if you think about paying?

Do we offer Service Level Agreements?
Glad you asked, why yes we do. If you anticipate needing to process a large amount of records for a long period of time for which manually adding credits
via the partner forms on the website would not be an acceptable option such as in a scheduled, automated, or web-service type process,
we offer service level agreements whereby a user can pay one set price per month and geocode up to a certain amount of records (including unlimited).
For information about this option or for a pricing quote, please contact us using the contact form.
Not so sure which option is right for you?
Go ahead and sign up and start test-driving our tools. Then, go ahead and sign up for the partner program anyway. You'll be glad you did.
We are here to help get you going where you need to be. Please feel free to contact us.
