Kite API vs Other API services

ANL edited December 2023 in Python client
I would like to hear about your user experience with the Kite API. Why is Kite charging 4000 rupees but other brokers provide free APIs? I have entered the Algo world by starting to use the Kite API service. So I never used other API services because I unaware other brokers' API user experiences. What are the things that make a difference on the Kite API?

Kindly share your insights on the Kite API and other API services. If you could briefly explain, it would be helpful.

    Kite Connect offers much more with just Rs 2000.
    > Kite Connect APIs are simple, robust and reliable.
    > The Rs 2000 for Kite Connect charges include GST.
    > Kite Connect API's historical dataset is bigger than any other offering.
    > Kite Connect APIs are scalable, tried and tested. Businesses like smallcase, sensibull, streak have been set up on these APIs.
    > Kite Connect offers eTags which will reduce bandwidth consumption drastically.
    > Kite Connect offers margin calculation, basket margin calculation API and virtual contract note as well.

    It may not be your concern but there is a huge underlying infrastructure cost as well.
