Can I get a free trial?

Of course! When you register for any one of our monthly plans you will be given a 7 day free trial period where 1 week's worth of API credits are deposited into your account absolutely free of charge. If you are happy with our service, just do nothing and we will charge your PayPal account for the amount you signed up for every month until you cancel the subscription.

If you do not wish to be charged, simply cancel your PayPal subscription from within your PayPal account and you still get to keep any free trial API credits in your account!


I don't have PayPal, is there another option to pay?

We can accomodate yearly subscriptions via Bitcoin with a 10% discount. Please contact us for our Bitcoin payment address.


How much does this all cost?

Please refer to our monthly plans page that outlines all of the details.


What are API credits?

1 API credit allows you to retrieve 1 list of proxies from our API, filtered however you like. If you select a list of proxies with a connection_max time of 10 seconds, from the continent of Asia, that costs 1 API credit. If you select a list of proxies with an country 50%, a completion_max time of 5 seconds, and only proxies from the country of Venezuela, that too costs 1 API credit, etc.

If you are too selective with your API call and no proxies are returned, you will not be charged an API credit.

When your payment completes, you will be given an API access key which will allow you to retrieve lists of verified proxies from us simply by accessing a URL. Each time you access our API using your key to retreive a list of proxies, we will deduct 1 API credit from your account.


Do my API credits ever expire?

No! Why should they? API call credits rollover every month. So if you have 300 API credits left in your account and you add 500 the next month, you will have 800 API credits in your account.


How do I use the API with Xrumer?

You can't use our default API URL of api.php, you need to use a special API URL known as xrumerHreferApi.php since Xrumer is not setup to simply download a list of proxies. All of the API filters are exactly the same.

I found an error on this site, can I get some free API credits if I tell you?

Yes! We do have a bounty program. Whether it's a spelling mistake or a critical error, please contact us with what you have found and we will compensate you accordingly.
