What exactly are 'credits' on VanceAI?

Credits function as a currency within the VanceAI platform, which you can utilize to access various AI services on websites or VanceAI PC online mode. Think of credits like tokens that you exchange for services.

Processing or downloading images on an online service will cost 1-3 credits (depending on the tools you are using). There are certain services, such as the AI Image Enhancer, AI Image Sharpener, AI Photo Restorer, and the sketch feature in VansPortrait, which will cost 1-3 credits for image downloading, some services like AI Model Generator and Toongineer Cartoonizer cost 1-3 credits for processing an image. Visit Credit Usage Guidelines Of Each Tool to know more. Also, you should note that downloading the same image multiple times will only count as a single credit deduction. 

As a subscriber, you're provided with a monthly allotment of credits to use. These credits can be carried over to the following month, but this is contingent upon continuous subscription, and the rollover limit is capped at five times your monthly credit allotment.

On the other hand, if you choose the Pay as you go plan, you can purchase credits with a one-time payment; these credits will have a validity period of one year from the date of purchase.

Please be aware that credits used for the website's cloud services cannot be used interchangeably with those for API services.
