Your AltText.ai Account
The Account section lets you manage your account information, settings, billing plan, and other account-level features.
Here you can update global account settings such as your default alt text language, default ChatGPT prompt to apply to all generated alt text, your name and password information, erase your Image Library, and even delete your account.
You will need API keys if you use any of our integrations (e.g. WordPress plugin, Shopify app, etc), or our Developer API. An API key ties the integration to your account, so when alt text is generated in the integration, the proper account data is used.
API Key Basics
You can create as many API keys as you want. Typically you will want an API key per integration, though it's perfectly fine to use the same key across many different integrations. When you use a key per integration, you are able to easily shut off access to that single integration if needed, as well as set limits on how many credits can be used each billing period.
Creating an API Key
To create an API Key:
- Go to the Account: API Keys tab.
- Click the + API Key button to make a new key.
Setting a Credit Limit
If you need to limit an API key's credits per billing cycle (or in total when not on a recurring plan), click the Edit button next to the API key. Set the maximum number of credits that can be used by the key, or leave the field blank for no limit.
Here's an example of an account with two API keys, one that is allowed unlimited usage, and another for a client site that is limited to 250 credits per billing period:
Billing and Payments
The Your Plan section lets you purchase and manage your subscription plan, as well as buy one-time credits packs as needed. If you are not currently on a plan, you can select whichever plan is best for your needs.
When you are already on a plan, you can use this section to upgrade, downgrade, and cancel your plan. Just click the Change Plan link and you can modify your billing settings.
All payments and plan changes are managed through Stripe, our billing and payment provider.
