This tier is aimed at smaller companies or products that would need the higher tier but not necessarily have the means for it. We’re a start up and know how that’s like so it was important to us not lock any users being doors.
With the Partner Tier users get the benefit of the Pro tier without the fee, by instead contributing data back. For example by enabling IGDB login on their consumer product, link backs etc.. Which also has the benefit of improving the API for others as well.
Feel free to send us an email if you’re interested, or grab one of us on Discord even!
