Service Credits Overview

With an ArcGIS Online annual subscription, you get a number of named users and service credits. Service credits are the currency for ArcGIS Online and are consumed when using certain functions, such as spatial analysis, routing, or geocoding. Service credits that are included with a subscription expire at the end of the 12-month subscription term. You can purchase additional service credits, which will expire 24 months from the date of purchase.
