What API Calls are Billable?

Most API calls are not counted for billing, only the times when you produce an output from Aspose for Cloud we count as a billable operation. Below are some examples to give you an idea.

API Call Billable Operation
Create and save a document Yes
Convert and save a document Yes
Generate or Recognize barcode Yes
Perform OCR Yes
Upload a document No
Search or Replace text No
Add or Delete pages No
Merge documents No

Here is a common scenario to explain it better

  • You upload a Word document on Aspose storage.
  • Add some new pages.
  • Add paragrahs, tables and images.
  • Save the document in DOCX format - That is one operation. The saved file size will be counted for billing.
  • Add or delete some pages.
  • Update the table.
  • Save the document in PDF format - That is another operation and the saved file size will be counted for billing.
