The API can be used free of charge for your services that are accessible to consumers, freely or restricted, with or without charge, provided that the amount of data served and measured by MM servers to your services does not exceed the Longdo Map API Free Usage Threshold, which is currently set to the followings:
- Search, routing, reverse geocoding, elevation inquiries: 5,000 requests per day per each service, and not more than 1 request per second

In case of exceeding, You will have two options of either 1) continue pulling the data from MM servers under a subscription of MM's commercial map solutions, or 2) receive no more data from MM servers until the beginning of the consecutive month. You will be contacted by MM's salesperson in such cases via the e-mail You registered with MM or other possible means.
