Licensing On-boarding Process
We are pleased to report that for at least the initial one-year license period, we will absorb all the costs of hosting, referred to in the new licenses as Usage Fees (the previous plan was to pass that on to you). For reference, our current usage costs are approximately $0.01 per API call.
