Frequently Asked Questions

Most commonly asked questions are answered below. If you do not find the necessary information below, feel free to reach out to us via chat or support@imagekit.io.

Billing
Payment
Support & uptime
Free plan limitations
Example 1
Bill is calculated based on your monthly bandwidth consumption. We do not charge based on the number of image transformations, requests or storage of transformed images.

Assuming that your usage in a given month is 90GB and you are on the Premium plan.

Then the bill will be calculated as follows:

Fixed cost
Base price of the Premium plan = $49

Bandwidth
Bandwidth included in Premium plan = 40GB
Additional bandwidth = 90GB - 40GB = 50GB
Additional bandwidth units = 50GB / 20GB = 3 units (rounded up)
Additional bandwidth cost = 3 units x $9 = $27

Total Bill (excluding applicable taxes, if any)
$49 + $27 = $76

Example 2

Assume you consumed 50GB bandwidth, 150GB media library storage, 25000 video processing units and 3000 extension units in a given month.

Then the bill will be calculated as follows:

Fixed cost
Base price of the Premium plan = $49

Bandwidth
Bandwidth included in Premium plan = 40GB
Additional bandwidth = 50GB - 40GB = 10GB
Additional bandwidth units = 10GB / 20GB = 1 units (rounded up)
Additional bandwidth cost = 1 units x $9 = $9

Media library storage
Media library storage included in Premium plan = 20GB
Additional storage = 150GB - 20GB = 130GB
Additional storage units = 130GB / 1GB = 130 units (rounded up)
Additional storage cost = 130 units x $0.10 = $13

Video processing
Video processing units included in Premium plan = 5000
Additional usage = 25000 - 5000 = 20000
Additional units = 20000 / 12000 = 2 units (rounded up)
Additional cost = 2 units x $10 = $20

Extensions
Extension units included in Premium plan = 2500
Additional usage = 3000 - 2500 = 500
Additional units = 500 / 5000 = 1 units (rounded up)
Additional cost = 1 units x $10 = $10

Total Bill (excluding applicable taxes, if any)
$49 + $9 + $13 + $20 + $10 = $101

Is there minimum billing even if I don't use included bandwidth?
There is no minimum billing on the Forever Free plan. There is a minimum billing of $49 if you are on the Premium Plan. This minimum billing includes 40GB bandwidth, 20GB media storage, 5000 video processing units, 2500 extension units, a custom domain name and many more advanced features.
How is the bandwidth calculated for my account?
ImageKit considers the final output object size for computing the output bandwidth. For example, if your original object is of size 3MB, and you optimize it to 150KB with ImageKit, you are billed for 150KB of bandwidth. If you access this object 100 times, you are billed for 100 x 150KB ~ 15MB of bandwidth. Please refer to the FAQs related to billing calculation for more details.
How is the storage consumption calculated for my account?
Any object that is explicitly uploaded to the ImageKit media library or any video transformation generated using ImageKit adds to your storage consumption. Image transformations are not billed towards your storage consumption. Please refer to the FAQs related to billing calculation and plan inclusions for more details.
What is a video processing unit, and how is it calculated?

Video processing units used depends on output video duration and resolution:

  • 1 second of SD video output = 1 unit
  • 1 second of HD video output = 2 units
  • 1 second of 4K video output = 4 units
  • 1 second of 8K video output = 8 units

Every new video transformation that has never been done before will contribute towards video processing units using the above definition. Subsequent views of the same video transformation only count towards bandwidth.

What is an extension unit, and how is it calculated?
Use of any third-party extension with ImageKit like Google Cloud Vision, AWS Rekogniton, or Remove BG requires extension units. Depending on the complexity of the task, each use of a particular extension might consume more than 1 extension unit. Learn more about extension units pricing.

I have credits available. How will I be billed?

Do you have plans for agencies or partners who want to sell ImageKit to other companies?
Yes. We do have plans for agencies and partners who want to sell ImageKit to other companies. Please fill up our contact form here with your requirement, and our team will connect with you to take this forward.
