The Zoom account that you got from the Sign Up process comes with a Basic type license. In order to use our SDK, you will need to upgrade your license, you can:

  • Either sign up for a 60-days trial for Zoom Developer Account for FREE. Click here to register: http://developer.zoom.us/
  • Or you will need to have a higher level account. To get an account for development, you can:
    • Purchase a API Partner license (Recommended for SDK development)
    • Purchase a Pro/Business/Enterprise license

Please note that each Pro/Business/Enterprise license allows you to host one concurrent meeting, if you have plans to host multiple meetings at the same time, you will need to purchase multiple licenses. Purchasing a API partner license will not have this issue.

The price and major differences:

License Type Price No. of concurrent meetings per license
API Partner Charge on your usage No limits
Pro $14.99/mo/host 1
Business $19.99/mo/host 1
Enterprise $19.99/mo/host 1
