I've been search and haven't been able to find information for the cost of an API call. I'm thinking about making a web app with Quickbase using Angular and wanted to know how much a single API call would cost in terms of $$$$$$$ . 

thank you ,

Hi Paul. The Premier subscription with 20 users comes with 2,000 calls per day. Quick Base also offers API call packs in blocks of 500 calls for an extra $50 per month.

Awesome! thanks for the reply. 

Just out of curiousity, does the 2,000 API calls a day take into account HTTP API calls that are used in development? Or is it just the API calls that quickbase uses to operate? 

Thank you.

I'm not sure what you mean by "used in development"

Basically, using the HTTP API calls in javascript.

I agree. Also note that you will not get dinged for going over in a particular day.  you are assessed really on a monthly basis, so, for example, you could be over on some weekdays but under on weekends, and come out OK for the month.
