Pricing Philosophy

When we set out to build IEX Cloud, we wanted to find a way to make the platform accessible to everyone while still building a sustainable business.

IEX Cloud was built on the idea that you should be able to get high quality financial data in one place and only pay for what you use. But not all data provides the same value. We created a weighting system to ensure data is assigned a fair value based on two factors: frequency and acquisition cost.

Frequency of data is how often the data updates. Data such as real-time prices update thousands of times per day, but data such as earnings updates in months. So, for example, a single stock quote has a weight of 1, while a company's latest EPS has a weight of 1000.

Acquisition cost is based on the amount of resources required to source and maintain data. Some data is published through public feeds, while some requires large teams to validate, clean, and categorize.

It's all spelled out in our documentation and we're expanding our pricing calculator to help you understand how many messages you can expect to use, based on your app and number of users. Check back soon.

Monthly pricing calculator

If you exceed monthly quotas on our Launch and Scale plans, you always have the option to pay-as-you-go. Use our pricing calculator to get an estimate of your monthly costs.

Frequently asked questions

How do you calculate message usage?

Certain products, such as the Core Financial API, measure usage in message counts. We calculate message counts by multiplying the type of data object by that data object’s weight. Data objects are commonly understood units, such as a single stock quote, company fundamentals, or crypto price. Weights are determined by taking two factors into consideration: frequency of distribution and acquisition costs. Weighting for each API endpoint can be found in our documentation.

We’re also expanding our pricing calculator to help you understand how many messages you can expect to use, based on your app and number of users, so check back soon. In the meantime, you should consider the following inputs, which will impact your final cost:

  • Type of data: Different API calls have different weightings, all of which is included in our documentation.
  • Frequency: If you’re requesting a data point every minute versus every hour, you’ll use 60x the messages. No surprise there.

Can I upgrade, downgrade, or cancel at any time?

Yes, you can upgrade, downgrade, or cancel at any time. Note that we don't provide prorated refunds for downgrades or cancellations, so if you downgrade or cancel before the end of your billing period, you will not receive a refund for the rest of the period. However, your account will stay active through the end of the billing period and you will be able to make requests through our APIs, as long as you haven’t reached your monthly quotas.

Do you provide support

All IEX Cloud users can go to our Github page anytime for free community support. Launch plans have access to email support. Scale plans have access to chat and email support, including an SLA.

Can I cap pay-as-you-go usage on the Launch or Scale plan?

You decide whether to enable pay-as-you go usage for your account or if you want IEX Cloud to pause when you hit your monthly quota. You cannot cap usage at a custom level at launch, but we are working on this feature and plan to introduce it very soon.

Do you offer enterprise contracts, pricing, support, or dedicated infrastructure hosting?

Our Scale plan is designed for enterprises of all sizes and includes an SLA and support options. We do not offer any additional options for enterprise users, but if this is something that would be of interest to you in the future, please let us know at support@iexcloud.io.

Who are your data providers?

Data sources for each API endpoint are included in our documentation. Unfortunately, we aren’t permitted to identify our Primary Partner, but we're confident you will be pleased with the quality of their data as they are one of the best providers in the market.

What happens if I upgrade mid-month?

If you upgrade mid-month, you’ll immediately be part of your upgraded tier, and your quotas will be updated accordingly. Please see our terms of service for a helpful explanation of how you will be invoiced for the upgrade.

How do I know which plan is right for me?

At a basic level, “Start” is for testing your ideas, “Launch” is for individuals and new projects, and “Scale” is for enterprises. Of course, there are individual developers who have reached a level where they need the “Scale” plan, and enterprises that want to start out in the “Launch” plan. But hopefully that provides a good place to start.

What am I allowed to do with IEX Cloud data?

Users on the Start plan are only permitted to use data from IEX Cloud for personal, non-commercial use. You can still display data to other individuals/users, but you may not include our data in any commercial application. Launch and Scale users can use IEX Cloud data for commercial use, including displaying publicly to users.

No user may provide IEX Cloud data in an API, or a downloadable format such as CSV, etc. For more information please see our terms of service.

Are there any restrictions?

Registered FINRA representatives are prohibited, by our terms of service, from using IEX Cloud. Additionally, certain companies will not be able to access data from our Primary Partner. Employees who try to sign up with email addresses associated with those companies will be notified that they are designated as Limited Access Customers. Those customers are welcome to access data from our other providers, including the Investors Exchange (IEX).

Additionally, no user may provide IEX Cloud data in an API, or a downloadable format such as CSV, etc. For more information please see our terms of service.

Do you require attribution?

Attribution is required for all users. It is as simple as putting “Powered by IEX Cloud” somewhere on your site or app and linking that text to https://iexcloud.io.

Will I pay monthly or annually?

You have the option to pay monthly or annually on all plans. Scale plans are billed annually at $499/month or $699/month if you prefer to pay monthly. Launch plans are billed at $9/month for both annual or monthly payments.
