Consuming a service

Consumer Pricing

The price to use a service is determined by the API provider. Byvalue does not add any fees to consumers who use these services.

Work smart, only pay for what you use.

We only charge for the API calls you make.


Introducing Fair and Transparent Pricing for All

At Byvalue we are committed to making services available and affordable for anyone. That’s why we provide a “pay per use” pricing structure for all of our partners’ services. Each API call to an endpoint has the same price, every time. No need to worry about overpaying or hitting a limit. You may require inconsistent usage, or perhaps can’t commit to spending a certain amount of money every month. Regardless of your usage, we make it easy and predictable to know exactly how much you spend on each service.

Please note that a single API call for many services will cost a fraction of a cent (USD). For this reason and for more convenient readability, most services are priced per 1,000 API calls. This is to make it easier to view and understand the pricing. Byvalue will count the exact number of requests you make every month and charge you for actual usage. 

We only charge for API requests that came back with status codes between 200 and 299 in the response.

Infrastructure cost calculation

Infra cost per second is determined monthly and reflects the closest estimation of Byvalue’s cloud infrastructure expenses for running your service. Each invocation will be charged by the runtime in seconds times the infra cost per second.

The cost of infrastructure changes depending on the deployment settings used. Choosing a larger amount of CPU cores and Memory allocated when creating your service will incur additional infrastructure costs per second.

If you need to associate a specific cost to a specific run you can fetch the data from the metadata part of the response when using the function. We suggest to save each response for easier monitoring and budget control.


The pricing you agree to pay at the time of your subscription will remain as long as you are subscribed to a service. If for any reason you would like to unsubscribe from a service, simply go to the service’s page and click the unsubscribe button.

If you choose to re-subscribe afterwards and the price for that service has changed, you will pay according to the new price.

Payments & Billing Cycles

Byvalue sees both it’s service creators and the consumers of these services as professionals that own a business or use a business’s services.

All billing will be done monthly just like most online businesses.

Your billing cycle will begin on the day you subscribe to each service and you will last for approximately one month. 

Charges – You will be charged monthly for all services you have used and for their respective infrastructure costs by the actual usage (if applies).

Withdraw – You can withdraw funds anytime, providing you have a positive balance. All revenue from your created services, referral royalties and rewards from solving challenges will be readily available for you to withdraw from your profile.
