No, there aren’t.
Due to the nature of our software implementation, we can’t hand out unlimited or lifetime licenses because the value of inexhaustible licensing would quickly rack up our costs with third-party services, like the dictionary API.
To depict this, each dictionary API request to our servers costs us about $0.004.
So, say that you manage 2,000 blogs, each of which uses our dictionary-services only once a day (that’s 6,000 requests): that’ll cost us about $24 per day, or about $8,760 per year. It’d be absurd and unreasonable for us to account and quantify such huge charges, and forward those to you.
Nevertheless, we do have generous pricing options available via our bulk-licensing subscription options, like the Business and Agency subscriptions.
Although we hand you more than $2,400 worth of API credit (600,000 requests) per year for Agency (which costs you $324/year), we evaluated that the unrestricted character of that subscription brings more value (and therefore, to be transparent, more sales) than it would cost us. Because, eventually, the users that use the API less often should level out the average usage and costs of all our customers combined.
