Our Admin API is only available to teams on a paid plan, but our Builder API can be used independently of a paid plan
We aggregate usage and bill on a monthly basis. You have full visibility of your usage via our API dashboard. For payment, we accept a number of common payment methods, including Visa and Mastercard.
As per our standard pricing, each paid seat is entitled to a generous 15,000 participant minutes per month and 100 GB of cloud storage, suitable for the vast majority of use-cases. If you have multiple hosts on your plan, usage will be pooled for your team.
Usage in Spaces created by the Admin API will be deducted from your quota, alongside standard usage. Additional usage will be billed with your monthly bill as per the overage pricing listed above. You can track your usage at any time by visiting your team's settings.
No, your users do not need to be part of the same team as you. However, your users will need to have an account with Pencil, and will need to have authorized you to use their account through the OAuth authorization flow.
Spaces managed through our API are treated as paid Spaces, and will not be subject to limitations, even if the user is not on a paid plan
Our Builder API returns data as if your user directly made the same request. If a user is not authorized to make a particular request (e.g., deleting a Space when they have no permissions, or accessing attendance data when not a host), the API response will throw an error
