How much does it cost?

Our API is completely free to use for both personal and commercial use, with a few limitations outlined below.

What are the limitations?

Our API cannot be resold or redistributed in any form.

When granted API access, you'll get a Staging app, with 1000 calls per month.
Once you're ready to launch, request a Production application to get 500 calls per minute.
Videos are required to credit Coverr by showing our logo - see documentation for an example.

Do I get access to all videos?

Yes, you get full access to our entire current and future video library.

What if I need more requests?

Enterprise solutions are also available upon request for larger scale needs.
Need to host the videos on your server? That's outside of the API scope, so let's talk.

Can I expose my API Key on my front-end?

In short, no. We require your application to make the request from a secured backend endpoint. Making your API key public will expose it to abuse and might cause disruption in service if request quotas are hit.

What if I want to host videos directly from my app?

As mentioned above, on-premise video hosting isn't supported via the API packages, but we can explore options together. Contact us for more details.
