FAQ
How are credits usage calculated? The basic formula is very simple – 1 credit for 1 page that is scraped. If you’re project is not urgent, and you don’t need any of the advanced features that will be the price for each page.

If your project is a bit bigger and you want to run it on multiple servers, for each extra server beyond the default one server, you will pay an extra of 0.02 credits per server. Meaning, if you want to run your scraper on 10 servers simultaneously you will be deducted 1.18 per page scraped but will get superb speed.
