Quotas control the number of screenshots you can generate using your screendot account.


screendot refreshes your quota allowance on the 1st of the month automatically, as long as you are a subscriber. You then start to consume your quota as you generate screenshots. Each screenshot request you make via the screenshot API counts as 1 use, regardless of what options you use.

Should you reach your limit, you will receive an HTTP 402 Payment Required error when using the API.

CDN Quota

We do not charge for serving images on our CDN. Once you generate the image, it will be available on the CDN for 30 days, and you may use it as required.


Upgrades are pro-rated, and you will immediately gain access to the new quota amount when upgrading. Given the low cost of screendot it is recommended to over-provision to avoid hitting any limits.
