FAQ: What is a credit?


What is a credit?


As ArcWeb Service requests are made, for example by creating maps or finding addresses, the appropriate number of credits are deducted from the account. Most requests deduct one credit from the account, but some requests, such as for generating print-quality reports, deduct more and some are free. Credits for the account are purchased in blocks of 100,000. When more credits are needed, more can be purchased.
