How does the token system work?

Created by Kai Sasaki, Modified on Wed, 15 Feb 2023 at 03:47 PM by Kai Sasaki

The token system is designed to be fair to both users and our system resources, allowing for a stable environment.

The general rule is that 1 token corresponds to 1 kilobyte of data. 

How many tokens does a scrape use?

The average number of tokens used per scrape is currently around 2. This translates to 7,500 scrapes with the Pro plan, 25,000 with the Ultimate plan and 75,000 with the Business plan.

However, the actual number of scrapes that can be performed may vary depending on the amount and type of data being extracted. For example, collecting smaller bits of information such as currency prices may allow for more scrapes, while collecting large amounts of data using long pagination may result in fewer scrapes.

Failed scrapes do not count towards the scrape limit

It is important to note that failed scrapes do not count towards the monthly scrape limit. This is because failed scrapes do not return any data and therefore do not incur a cost.

A minimum usage of 1 token per scrape

In addition, scrapes that return small amounts of data will consume a minimum of 1 token.
