This article introduces the pricing policy for the Agora Real-time Messaging (RTM) service.
Pricing for the RTM service begins once you implement the real-time messaging function using the Agora RTM SDK. Agora calculates the pricing of all projects under your Agora account monthly. For details, see Billing, fee deduction, and account suspension.
Agora calculates your monthly pricing by adding up the highest number of daily active users (DAUs) for the month of each RTM project in your Agora developer account.
|Highest number of DAUs for the month||Price ($US/1,000 DAUs)|
A user uses the Agora RTM service, and the highest number of DAUs for the month is 9,000. Because the first 1,000 in the highest number of DAUs for the month are free of charge, the number of DAUs used to calculate the monthly billing is 8,000. Therefore, the monthly billing for the RTM service is 8,000 (DAUs) / 1,000 (DAUs) × $14.50 = $116.
