Service credits are consumed for specific transactions and types of storage such as storing features, performing analytics, and using premium content. Any app you develop that interacts with ArcGIS Online can use credits. For a deeper explanation of credits please see Understand credits.

If you need more than 1 million map transactions per month, contact us.

What Requires Service Credits?

You can use service credits in exchange for storage, analytics, demographics and lifestyle maps. Use the chart above or visit our documentation page for more information.

What Does Not Require Service Credits?

Most of what you do with ArcGIS Online does not require service credits including accessing data stored in your layers, using basemaps and imagery layers, exporting your data.

What are the terms and conditions?

Read through our FAQ and/or our plain English terms. You can also read the full terms and conditions.

What is a deployment plan and do I need it when I go to production?

Not necessarily. A deployment plan licenses the use of ArcGIS Online. If your app uses ArcGIS Online, but doesn’t use more than 50 Credits, and doesn’t generate any revenue you may deploy your apps without a paid deployment plan.

Do I have to choose a deployment plan now?

No. When you sign up for the ArcGIS Developer Program 50 credits per month are included to develop your applications. You can choose your plan when you go into production or if you need more then 50 credits to develop your application.

What if I go over my Deployment Plan limit?

If you go over your credit allowance, we'll simply sell you more credits at a slightly higher rate. The extra charge is 13 cents per credit.

Are There Larger Deployment Plans?

Absolutely. If you need a larger plan, simply call us and we can work out a custom solution. Also, if you simply need multiple users, you should look at our plans for organizations.

What if I already have an account for ArcGIS Online?

If you have an ArcGIS Online account, simply sign in with the same credentials to download our APIs and get access to developer samples and documentation.
