Our service is based on a fee per search for a single profile. It is possible to obtain updates every month,week and day. For each of these intervals a different fee is applied:
Monthly updates cost 18 credits per profile search
Weekly updates cost 9 credits per profile search
Daily updates cost 3 credits per profile search.
AutoCluster analysis cost 25 credits per search.
Credits are the equivalents of dollar cents. For instance a 5 dollar payment would earn 500 credits.
Credits can be purchased via single payments (for instance; a single payment of 7 dollar will give you 700 credits) or via monthly subscriptions. The latter are available on the subscription page. In addition, these monthly subscriptions yield 10% additional credits (e.g., a monthly subscription of 10 dollar corresponds with 1000 credits + 100 bonus credits = 1100 credits).
Credits that are not used (for instance credits from a monthly subscription that are not that month) are kept and can be used for future analyses.
The running costs of the site and the back end components (update workers, database, queues) can be divided into consistent and variable costs. The consistent costs are the expenses we have for keeping the components up and running. These costs are better covered by updates that are performed more regularly. That's the reason that we can offer regular searches cheaper.
In the first scenario we have a total of five profiles that are updated every month:
In the second scenario we have a total of six profiles that are updated every week:
In the third scenario we have a total of 10 profiles that are updated every day:
In the last scenario we have a mixture of update intervals. Some profiles are updated every month, some every week and a set of profiles is set to be updated every day:
