Learn more about Professional status.

Exchanges frequently conduct inspections to review new projects and verify the sources of data presented on websites, apps, or other platforms. In the event that the exchange discovers that data is not being sourced from an authorized professional subscriber, it may result in retroactive fees being billed by the exchange at the professional rate. To maintain compliance with exchange regulations and avoid any potential liabilities or fees, it is important to proceed with the correct subscriber type that matches your eligibility and needs.

For Pro subscribers, it is necessary to sign direct agreements with CTA & UTP and pay exchange fees directly to them. The exchange fees vary based on usage case, display policy, and other factors, and typically range from $1,000 to $10,000 per month. Additionally, Pro subscribers will also pay fees to Finazon for accessing and receiving the data. Our fees are designed to be user-friendly, and generally fall in the range of $2,000 to $2,500 per month.

Non-Pro subscribers are not required to pay exchange fees since there is no obligation to sign a contract with CTA & UTP. The only fees that Non-Pro subscribers need to pay are for accessing the data through Finazon. These fees range from $3 to $200 per month.

Yes. It is common to start as a Non-Pro subscriber when working on personal projects and then later realize the potential to expand into a commercial venture. To maintain compliance and access the benefits offered with a Professional Subscriber Status, we encourage you to switch your status from Non-Pro to Pro. Our team is available to assist you throughout the process and answer any questions you may have about upgrading your subscription.

Currently, there are no trials available for SIP data feeds due to CTA & UTP regulations. However, Professional subscribers can still test out the API with an end-of-day data feed that does not require approval. This allows you to explore the features and capabilities of the service before proceeding to a full subscription.

For Non-Professional subscribers, we offer affordable monthly subscriptions starting at just $3. This provides you with access to real-time data and allows you to test the data in a live environment. Our team is available to answer any questions you may have and provide guidance on selecting the subscription type that best fits your needs.
