Why use TikTok Scraper?

TikTok Scraper creates an unofficial TikTok API. TikTok now has an estimated one billion users, and many of those users spend as much as 80 minutes per day on the app. With a TikTok API, you can build your own products and applications on top of the TikTok platform.

How much will TikTok Scraper cost?

If you run TikTok Scraper on the Apify platform, a single run of the actor will use approximately 0.2 compute units to get 1,000 results. This means that, on average, you can extract about 1,000 results for less than USD 1 in platform usage credits.

The easiest way to know how many credits your actor will need is to perform a test run. If you're unsure how much credit you've got on your plan, check your limits in the Settings -> Usage and Billing tab in your Console.
