April 1, 2021 Self-Serve API Changes

We hope you’ve been getting tremendous value from your People Data Labs experience to date. Firstly, we wanted to thank you for being a PDL customer and for utilizing our Pay as you Go API services via our Self Service. Originally, our Pay as you Go model was intended to support low volume usage and encourage people to try out our product without committing to an annual subscription. While we believe that this has been successful, we also believe that it is no longer serving the needs of our customers in the best way possible.

As a result of that,we will be deprecating this option and replacing it with a monthly committed package model starting on April 1, 2021. In conjunction with that change, we’ll also be releasing a new API dashboard that includes public access to our Person Search and Company Enrichment endpoints.

What does this mean for you? If you would like to continue using PDL data past March 31st, 2021, you will need to select one of our monthly-committed API packages based on what your needs are. Of course, we don’t want to break your existing application, so on April 1st you’ll lose unlimited access, but we’ll grant you a one-time additional 5,000 matches towards our person enrichment API for free. Think of this as a bridge that will get you started on our new monthly, pre-paid, package. We encourage you to visit your API dashboard and choose your committed package if you’d like to continue using PDL -- this is very important. The minimum committed package will continue to be $.25 a match and will require a 1,000 match / month minimum commitment. However, a committed model will allow us to provide higher discounted tiers at 2,500 and 5,000 committed matches monthly, which many of our Pay as you Go customers have already been hitting consistently over time.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us. We’re committed to making this as smooth of a transition as possible.
