Why is SmartyStreets so expensive? This isn’t Rocket Science

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.

SmartyStreets so expensive - not 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:

Annual Budget $100/year $300/year $1,000/year
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. 

You can try a free ZipCodeAPI demo and see for yourself.
