How much will it cost to scrape?

Our BaT Scraper on the Apify platform will give you 1,000 results for less than 4 dollars in platform usage credits. That should be covered by the free $5 in monthly credits you get on every Apify Free plan.

But if you need to get more data regularly from BaT, you should grab an Apify subscription. We recommend our $49/month Starter plan - with that one, you can get well over 10,000 results every month!

It is highly recommended. BaT are open for access and do not require a login to retrieve information. Typically, using proxies is necessary to ensure successful bring a trailer scraping. Best Result is with proxy. Fortunately, Free plan offers a trial of Apify Proxy, which get you started.
