Why do we charge for our tools?

Running an AI-powered tool like ELI5 at scale can be expensive. It requires a lot of computing power, storage, and other resources to ensure that we can deliver the best experience to our users. We also need to invest in ongoing development and maintenance to make sure that our tool remains accurate and up-to-date.

However, we understand that not everyone can afford to pay for our tool, especially those in third world countries who are using it for schools. That's why we've designed our pricing tiers to be as affordable as possible while still allowing us to cover our costs and continue improving our product.

We believe that access to knowledge should be available to everyone, regardless of their location or financial situation. That's why we strive to keep our prices low and affordable, without compromising on the quality of our tool. By paying for our tool, you're not only supporting our ongoing development and maintenance but also helping us make ELI5 accessible to more people around the world.

Thank you for considering our tool, and we hope that it can help you simplify complex topics and gain a better understanding of the world around you. If you have any further questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us.
