New: Transpose SQL Pricing

We’re excited to roll out an updated pricing model for Transpose that combines support for our new SQL API and existing REST API in one simple system.

The new pricing model is based on Transpose credits. Every plan will come with a fixed number of credits by default and a fixed overage cost for excess credit usage (don’t worry, overages are off by default!). We’re keeping the same plans as before, and credit quotas will be as follows:

  • Free: 250,000
  • Developer: 1,000,000
  • Startup: 5,000,000
  • Enterprise: Flexible credit and rate limits to meet the most demanding requirements

How credits are billed

The new system is simple. Every request gets charged in credits as a combination of compute used and data returned. Currently, requests will be charged credits according to the following numbers:

  • 5000 credits per GB returned
  • 3600 credits per minute of compute

How much data per credit?

With the developer tier, you’ll be able to retrieve over 144M individual NFT sales — so one credit gets you about 140 rows of items. If you optimize your queries for fast data retrieval, the compute costs will be negligible. If you perform long-running queries that return little data, the data costs will be negligible.

Why credits?

We have introduced this change to give our customers and free users maximum flexibility for tailoring Transpose to their needs. This will keep billing simple as we add integrations — we’ve got a packed roadmap for the rest of Q4!

What happens to my existing plan?

With this upgrade, we’ve made sure that the pricing is at least as cost effective as the previous model. In fact, in many cases, you’ll be able to pull far more data for each dollar spent!

Existing plans will be migrated to the new system, and any usage for the month will be reset to zero. You’ll see your credits reflected when you log into your dashboard.


We’d love to chat, explain how the new system works, learn what you like or dislike about our new approach, and help you find the right plan for your use case. Reach out to the team on Twitter, Discord, or by email at
