Which subscription plan is the right one for me?
Your subscription plan requirements primarily depend on the monthly volume of API requests you would like to process through the mediastack API. If you are able to stay below 500 monthly API requests, you are fine staying on the Free Plan. If you require more advanced features, such as real-time news data and historical articles, the Basic or Professional Plan will be the way to go. In case you need a higher volume than what is offered on the website, you can always reach out to get a quote.
Which payment methods are supported?
Payments can be made using any major credit card, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Diner's Club, Discover, as well as using your PayPal account. For large contracts with annual billing, payment via bank transfer is offered as well.
Can I also pay yearly?
Yes, choosing to pay yearly will even reduce the price of your subscription by 20%. You can choose annual billing during the signup or checkout process.
Where is mediastack's news data coming from?
Every minute, the mediastack API interface is automatically collecting news articles from 7,500+ global news sources and blogs worldwide, parsing it and converting it into a standardized programmatic format for the purpose of ease of use. In order to ensure the highest possible level of accuracy and data consistency, each of the sources used is monitored closely and around the clock for technical or content anomalies. Additional news sources are added continously as they become available. Do you have a suggestion? Feel free to get in touch with our team.
How scalable is this service?
This API service is hosted on the apilayer cloud, a rock-solid, scalable and highly available technical infrastructure capable of dealing with millions of API requests per minute. No matter which volume you are looking to process, our system has got you covered.
How are API requests counted?
Each time the API is used to access or search news data, a minimum of 1 API request is counted towards your monthly allowed API request volume. Depending on the options you use, some qeries may consume more than 1 API request. For more information, please refer to our API documentation.
