Why is the number of API calls in the bill different from the statistics on the dashboard?

  • The API call number that is displayed on a dashboard indicates the actual number of messages that are received and sent.

  • The API call number displayed on a bill is calculated by using the following formula: Number of API calls = Number of received and sent messages × Multiple for message size × Multiple for featured messages. For more information, see Pricing details of the messaging feature.

Therefore, the number of API calls or the number of sent and received messages in the bill may be larger than the statistics that is displayed on the dashboard.
