We are announcing the launch of metered billing for AWS Data Exchange for APIs, which gives data providers the ability to license APIs to subscribers on a pay-as-you-go basis. AWS Data Exchange for APIs enables customers to find, subscribe to, and use third-party API products listed on AWS Data Exchange. This new feature allows data subscribers to subscribe to APIs and only pay for what they use.

Data subscribers can subscribe to APIs that are metered by number of requests, number of successful requests, bytes transferred, or other custom dimensions such as units of compute. Data providers now have the flexibility to create offers that are billed either on a contract basis, a metered basis, or a combination of the two.

Metered billing for AWS Data Exchange for APIs is available in all regions where AWS Data Exchange is available including: US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (N. California), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), and Europe (London).

To explore metered billing APIs on AWS Data Exchange, visit the AWS Data Exchange data catalog.
