The Autofy API has a billing model that's based on the number of apps you're integrating to, as well as the number of discrete company files provisioned. This offers flexibility, in that your bill accurately reflects the usage of the platform. However it also means that you need to be aware of a few key details that influence your billing.
Check Your Agreement
Be sure to familiarize yourself with the details of your agreement, which is the source of truth for pricing and terms.
When you sign on to use Autofy, you'll be issued 2 keys, Test and Production. Your Test key is prepended with
TEST. It's given to you so that you can test your integration without impacting your production users or your Autofy billing. Like the Trial key, your Test key is restricted:
- You can only connect up to 5 companies
Note that bulk API actions are now unrestricted, and there is no expiration.
Your Production key is what you'll use to serve your users. It's fully unrestricted, and can accept an unlimited number of provisioned companies. Unlike the other two keys, your Production key impacts your billing:
- Whenever a new company is provisioned, and an
endpointIDis returned, that company will count toward your monthly invoice with Autofy.
- When a company is de-provisioned, it will be removed from your Autofy bill.
- Billing is run on the first business day after the end of the previous month.
- Any duplicate endpointIDs are removed to keep the count true.
Autofy does not have the ability to edit endpoint counts, instead it's the responsibility of each customer to make sure their list is accurate.
