Commercial license

The Commercial MapKit license is intended for applications that do not meet the terms and conditions for the free version. For example:

  • Enterprise applications that are available only to company employees.
  • Applications that require an invitation to access.
  • Paid applications.

The license limits the number of requests per day according to the pricing plan. The section below explains how requests are counted. If the limit is exceeded, a separate invoice is issued for extra requests.

MapKit usage restrictions

To get map data, MapKit sends requests to Yandex.Maps services. The request limit is determined by the chosen pricing plan.

How requests are counted

The number of requests is calculated according to the following formula:

Attention. One request to the panorama service is equal to five other requests. In other words, under the "up to 1,000 requests" plan, 200 requests for panoramas will use up the daily limit.

If the limit is exceeded, an invoice is issued according to the pricing plan. The invoice is available in the Developer's Dashboard in the “Finance” section.

Paid transactions

The following operations are charged per method call. Other operations in the MapKit SDK do not count toward the limit for Yandex.Maps services.

Exceeding the request limit

If the daily limit of requests is exceeded, an additional invoice will be issued at the end of the month. The cost is calculated according to your pricing plan.

The number of requests over the limit is rounded up to the next thousand. For example, a total of 400 requests over the limit is rounded up to 1,000.

If you exceed the limit multiple times in a month, the overuse charge is calculated for each day separately, and these charges are totaled at the end of the month.
