Everyone loves flexibility, (knowimsayinn) but no one admits it!

We’ve successfully deployed Private Plans, a new feature of our Pricing Tab. There is nothing keeping developers away from consuming your public and private APIs, and with this release, we give you a way to charge users in customized ways.

This update is targeted to all our API providers who like to keep things between your API and your consumers a little more interesting. Mashape wants you to be able to provide your customers with a flexible pricing for any use-case.

The best part is that to create a Private Plan is as easy as 1, 2, 3:

  1. Within an API you own, navigate to the Private Plans submenu under the Pricing tab
  2. Add a new private plan and name it anything you want
  3. Customize your custom plan to suit your needs and send it to a developer of your choice!
Step 1 and 2

Step 3, customising the plan and sending it to a specific user


Imagine you have developed a new API, and want to have an introductory price for the first 10 subscribers. Now you can invite developers to private pricing plans, keeping in mind that all features such as quota, endpoint segmentation and feature management are fully customizable!

But wait here are a few more ideas…
