ArcGIS subscription

An ArcGIS subscription is a free or paid plan that defines the capabilities of an ArcGIS account and the method of billing for the consumption of location services. A subscription gives a developer, group of users, or an organization access to ArcGIS location services and ArcGIS Developer website, APIs, tools, applications, content, and services.

There are two subscription types:

  1. ArcGIS Online subscription: A product subscription for an organization or group with users that can share and collaborate with members inside or outside of their organization. A subscription requires at least one user to activate and administer the account. Once activated, the administrator can purchase additional user types. The storage of data and usage of ArcGIS content and services are managed with credits. Credits can be acquired as needed by the organization administrator.

  2. ArcGIS Developer subscription: A product subscription for a single developer using client APIs and app templates to build applications that access location services. A developer subscription supports a monthly free tier and requires activating pay-as-you-go and monthly billing to access location services and functionality beyond the free tier. All location service access and data storage are charged in US Dollars.

Both subscription methods provide access to ArcGIS Developer and ArcGIS Online websites and tools.
