Credits are our internal currency and translate to a certain amount of USD (US Dollars), depending on your plan. We use credits to calculate pull request (PR) costs and track work on our platform.

How credits work

Each PR comes with a credit estimate, a cost estimate that we submit for your approval. Once a PR is merged, we finalize the cost such that it never exceeds the estimate range. At the end of each month, we calculate your bill based on your monthly usage and pricing plan.

Credits can be spent, but on selected plans you may also purchase prepaid credits.

Check your credit usage

There are several ways to find out how many credits you use in a month.

  • See usage for the month in progress. This page shows how much credit you’ve used this month. We show the details for each instance, and you can download the data as a .csv file from the top right corner of the screen.
  • See usage for past months. Check your monthly usage in the Billing section. The Usage tab gives an overview, and selecting a month provides detailed breakdowns, including credits and refunds.

Note: we don’t display months with zero credit usage.
