RadarBox.com - On Demand API Pricing


Credit based pricing

The Credit-per-Query API is a volume based pricing model used by RadarBox, where customers purchase monthly credits in large volumes based on projected monthly use.

RadarBox offers a number of monthly (pay-per-month) and subscription plans that customers can choose from.

The primary advantage of the Credit-per-Query API pricing system is that it affords flexibility for customers who are unsure about their application’s requirements. Customers can subscribe or purchase a lower plan at first and then upgrade during the month if their requirements increase.


The only pre-requisite is that customers must have an active business account on RadarBox.com to access the on demand API.

Flight status or position call: 1 credit


All credits are valid for one month and cannot be rolled over to the next month

How it works

Consider an example of Customer A, who requires live flight data for his mobile app. He estimates his app will make 35,000 – 40,000 query calls to the server for flight data (position, altitude etc.) per month. Based on this assumption, he buys 50,000 credits for the month.

Now suppose for that month there is an increased demand for his app and a surge in the number of users. Consequently, the number of queries to the server will increase, say by an additional 20,000. In such a case, Customer A can upgrade his plan or buy additional credits to cater to the increased demand. Once the demand has decreased, he can shift back on to a lower plan, if he wishes.

  • 1. What happens if a customer runs out of credits during the month?
    If a customer runs out of credits mid-month, all query responses from the server to the client will stop. Customers need to purchase more monthly credits or upgrade to the next subscription plan to receive additional data from the server.
  • 2. Can I change / upgrade their current plan during the month?
    Absolutely. Upgrading to a higher plan is quick and simple. If a customer requires additional data during the month, they can either contact support or directly buy more credits via their business account RadarBox.com.
  • 3. Can credits be rolled over?
    RadarBox currently doesn't allow for credits to be rolled over to the next month.
