Key Highlights

💳 Data Credits

Meet your data needs with simple, flexible, and scalable API pricing.

Our new charging mechanism, 'Data Credits', is replacing 'hits' to ensure you only pay for the amount of data you actually receive. You'll find it easier to calculate usage and control credit consumption.

You'll find the cost of each endpoint detailed in this documentation. Estimate your Data Credit usage with the following calculation:

# domains x endpoint price x granularity x # country filters x historical data x # results requested

Speak to your Similarweb Account Manager for more information.

📃 Pagination

Some endpoints can return thousands of results, so we've added pagination capabilities to over 60 endpoints so you can have total control over how much data you receive.

With pagination, you can slice and dice large datasets using these new parameters:

limit - sets how many results to return.
offset - defines the number of results to skip.
sort - selects a specific metric to order results by.
asc - orders the results by ascending or descending.

For endpoints with pagination capabilities, look out for the 'v4' in URL paths.


v.4.0 accessibility

While v.4.0 is accessible to all Simlarweb premium API users, this API documentation references Data Credits. Details of our legacy 'hits'-based charging method can be found in our previous documentation.
