Monetization Policy

The PUBG API is free, publicly accessible, and was created to enrich the experience of the entire PUBG community. We understand the need to offset some of the costs associated with building an application or website using the PUBG API, so we've compiled a list of acceptable ways for you to monetize your PUBG API projects.

Again, our API is meant to enrich the community, therefore we kindly ask that you not create an environment where users feel pressured to spend money. While the guidelines below give an overall indication of what we allow and do not allow, we reserve the right to require any form of monetization (including donations) be removed from a project if we deem it to be contradictary to the goal of this project. These judgments will be made on a case by case basis.

Allowed:

  • Advertisements - Ads are the PUBG-preferred method of monetization for you to offset your costs. They exist along side the information, but do not gate it or force interaction.
  • Paid Removal of Advertisements - We understand that ads can be annoying to some users, so we are allowing you to provide users with the option to remove ads for a set cost. This payment must not include any additional benefits, features, or exclusive access to users other than the removal of ads. Additionally, the API project must be available for free to all users, with the paid removal of ads as an optional quality-of-life feature.
  • Donations - Donations are allowed as long as they do not violate the Crowdfunding rules laid out below. Simply put, a user must never feel pressured to donate to your organization. If an individual enjoys your content and wants to contribute freely to your project, they may. However, they cannot be granted any special benefits from doing so.
  • Subscriptions - Subscriptions are allowed as long as they do not violate the Exclusive Access rules laid out below.

Strictly Forbidden:

  • Exclusive Access - You may not charge money for exclusive access to features that are based, in whole or in part, on data gained from the PUBG API.
  • Crowdfunding - By its very nature, crowdfunding grants benefits to those who have contributed that are not available to those who have not. As a result, we cannot allow this type of monetization. As stated above, if a player wants to contribute freely to your project, they may. However, they cannot be granted any special benefits from doing so.

Copyright Infringement

If you believe that any User Contributions violate your copyright, please send an email to pubgapi@pubg.com It is the policy of the Company to terminate the user accounts of repeat infringers.
