We were looking at the pricing for different zip code API’s. And we were struck with one big question: why is SmartyStreets so expensive? We still don’t think it’s rocket science.
If you want a zip code API, these are probably your primary choices:
Here’s what we found when we looked at a few different price points:
|SmartyStreets||nothing||12,000 API calls||120,000 API calls|
|Zip-codes.com||3,000 API calls||120,000 API calls||1.2M API calls|
|ZipCodeAPI||1,752,000 API calls||21.9M API calls||109.5M API calls|
Rockets are expensive. But we don’t think it should be so expensive to use a zip code API.
