Freemium & Pro Plans
For most of our services, a Transaction is one server request. For map, satellite and traffic tiles, it's 15 requests. Exceptions and detailed definitions are available in our FAQs.
A Monthly Active User (MAU) represents an active customer app installation on a device that uses the HERE SDK in a given billing month. If you have more than 5,000 monthly active users (MAUs) for your application, contact us for a plan tailored to your needs.

HERE Studio lets you store, edit, and publish geospatial data in a cloud database solution. Access your data through convenient tools for different levels of technical ability from Studio to our Hub API and command line interface. Think map making.
Studio Data transfer means the movement of all data to or from the HERE Studio service.
Studio Database storage is data stored by the HERE Studio service.

Do I need to enter payment information to get started?
No, you can get started on the Freemium plan without entering a credit card. If you exceed 250,000 Transactions per month, or the Studio Database storage or Data transfer limits, you will be required to enter payment information to continue using our Freemium services.
What application use cases are allowed with the Freemium and Pro plans?
Both the Freemium and Pro plans allow applications for both consumer (public) and business (private) use, whether your application is free or paid. In addition, both plans allow turn-by-turn navigation, in-vehicle integration, and asset management applications.
My app will be for sale (ie, not available for free) in an app store. Can I still use the Freemium plan?
Yes, that's fine with us.
Do you offer a service level agreement (SLA)?
Our SLA is 99.9% monthly availability for these APIs in production:
Maps, Routing, Geocoding, Traffic, Positioning, Weather, Fleet Telematics, Search, Transit and HERE SDK (server components).
This SLA comes with all our paid plans. This includes the Freemium plan when paying for usage over 250,000 Transactions per month, the Pro plan and some Enterprise plans.
We do not offer an SLA (Service Level Agreement) for Batch Geocoder, HERE Studio or Live Sense SDK Beta.
Is there technical support? If so, which kind of support is provided?
Specific questions on the use of HERE Maps APIs and SDKs and Studio can be asked on Stack Overflow. The HERE Maps team actively monitors and responds to programming questions asked there regarding these APIs and SDKs. We encourage all developers to share their knowledge by answering and asking questions in the here-api tag. For more information, see: Stack Overflow Tour and How to ask a good question on Stack Overflow.
Customers with a paid plan can view dedicated support contact information by logging in and going to the Project Details page of any given project, which can be accessed from the Projects page.
Extended technical support options are also available via our Gold and Platinum support plans.
