API Platform Fees

The fee charged for access to the FINRA API platform is made up of two components:

  1. A monthly API Credential fee for each credential provisioned by an organization or individual (based on the type of credential provisioned)
  2. A monthly data overage fee when the data usage associated with an API Credential exceeds 10 GB in a month.

There are three (3) production API Credential Types available:

  • Public
  • Firm
  • Organization

Only the Firm and the Organization API Credentials incur the credential and data overage fees.

The Public Credential does not incur fees but the data usage for these credentials is limited to 10 GB per month. The credential will become inactive once the 10 GB usage limit is reached until the beginning of the next calendar month.
