Credits serve as a digital currency which facilitates the personalisation of MarineTraffic services. The services that are made available to you after your registration, as well as the extent to which they can be utilised, depend mainly on the subscription plan you have chosen.
By purchasing Credits, you are able to further personalise some aspects of the offered services and refine certain MarineTraffic features according to your wish.
- Extend the limits of your plan. For example, suppose you have subscribed to a PRO plan and you want to be receiving SMS notifications for certain vessels or ports of interest. According to your selected plan, you will be getting up to 50 notifications via SMS per month. If you feel that this predefined amount of SMS notifications is not enough, you can purchase Credits which will allow you to exceed your plan's limitations and reach the desired number of monthly SMS notifications without having to upgrade to another subscription plan.
- Purchase API services and get charged using Credits. This way you can get as much information about recorded vessel positions or build your own applications with data provided to you by MarineTraffic!
- You can also use Credits to export more data records and extend the export limits of your plan!
Note that Credits cannot be used outside of MarineTraffic and that they expire one year after the date of purchase.
