Service Credits Overview

Your annual ArcGIS Online subscription comes with a set amount of service credits, and you can always get more if you need them.

What Requires Service Credits?

You can use service credits in exchange for storage, analytics, demographics and lifestyle maps. Use the chart below for more information.

What Does Not Require Service Credits?

Most of what you do with ArcGIS Online does not require service credits, for example:

  • Accessing the data you store in ArcGIS Online in apps.
  • Using ArcGIS Online foundation maps and data (basemaps, Landsat imagery, landscape layers, live traffic, and other live feeds).
  • Exporting data stored in ArcGIS Online.
  • Performing single address or place search.
  • Leveraging your own ArcGIS for Server capabilities to host and publish map services.
