How do I refill my balance?

You can configure your payment settings to automatically charge your credit card if your balance falls below a certain threshold, or you can make a one-time payment at any time.

 

Why are you so much cheaper than competitors?

Our theory is that we run on AWS Lambda while other services maintain clusters of expensive servers.

How long are PDFs stored on Api2Pdf.com?

Your privacy and security is important to us. After generating a PDF via the API, you are provided with a link to the file. This link will hold the PDF for only 24 hours. If you wish to keep your PDF long term, download the file to your local cache.
