Why Choose ScraperAPI Over Zyte

So, how do our prices and features compare to Zyte?

Although Zyte’s plan seems to be cheaper than ScraperAPI, once you start using more advanced features, prices quickly go up, especially for hard-to-scrape sites.

Price Transparency is Critical for Large Projects

ScraperAPI’s credit system makes it easy to understand how much data you’ll get from your subscription.

credit cost 1 5 25 30

No matter the complexity of the ecommerce site, the price for every successful request is always going to be 5 API credits.

On the other hand, Zyte’s per-site pricing model uses a vague tier system, which makes costs higher based on the computational power and type of IPs used to bypass the site’s anti-scraping mechanisms, going from $0,08/1k requests all the way to $0,76/1k requests.

So if you’re scraping enterprise-level ecommerce sites, you’ll be easily met with a big price tag.

For context, using 600,000 successful requests as a reference, you can easily spend $456/month to scrape tier 5 ecommerce sites – which would be more realistic than collecting data only from small vendors that would still meet tier 3 – 4 because of the complexity of ecommerce sites.

ScraperAPI pricing stays the same, allowing you to scale your data pipelines without surprises in your bill.

The problem with Zyte’s system is that there’s no clear way to understand what sites can be considered tier 1 or tier 5, and based on their graphs and how complex websites are becoming, we must assume most sites will land between tier 3 and 5.

Plus, difficulty is not the only thing changing the pricing. Take into account additional features being used, the type of request you are making, and more.

Save Big on JavaScript Rendering

Zyte’s pricing model is based on computation power, and there’s nothing more computationally heavy than having to render your websites before returning the HTML.


Assuming you need to render tier 4 pages, we’re talking about $4,80/1k requests. So let’s compare it to what ScraperAPI offers.

And if you’re going to collect data from tougher sites, ScraperAPI will keep its price, while Zyte’s prices double.
