About subscription

Ask us about ENTERPRISE pricing if you plan to process more than one million names per month.

With NamSor PRO, for example, you pay a monthly subscription of 19$ to process up to 10000 names to infer gender (1 credit per name). Beyond that, the following charges will apply : $0.003 per extra genderized name.
We apply a (1 / 20) ratio on duplicate names, so you can process up to twenty times the same name.

Overages as calculated according to your current subscription period, billed and reset every month. Subscriptions can be canceled or modified at any time. We don't apply pro-rating to simplify billing and avoid having subscriptions changed too often. Prices are quoted in your preferred currency, excluding tax/VAT. We use Stripe for secure payment processing, so we never have access to your CC details.

European organizations

If you are a company registered in Europe, please update your billing information BEFORE adding a payment method or subscribing to a plan so we can select the appropriate currency. French-registered companies and organizations must specify a valid VAT number FRXXXXXXXXXXX (for example, ours is FR84811488444).
