Make Your Project Accessible to Users
Once you’re done and deploying your project to the production environment, you can monitor credit consumption in My Account. Larger projects with higher traffic will also have higher credit consumption. Now is the right time to check out the two tariffs, Basic and Discounted. Both include a portion of free credits.
Consider Paid Consumption
Do the 250,000 free credits in the Basic tariff not suffice? Great job, your project has significant traffic. Now, you need to enable Paid Consumption in your Project. There will be no charged consumption without your consent.
You can also request the Discounted tariff and get 10,000,000 credits for free every month.
