How many requests to the API does a wordlist count as?

One wordlist request counts as 500 calls. It can contain up to 5000 words. But if you made a request that yielded 100 words, that would be worth the same (i.e. 1 wordlist call=500 calls) as a response that yielded 5000 words. Therefore, if you were using our free plan, with an allowance of 3000 requests, if you made a wordlist request for, for example, 50 words, you would then have 2500 requests left.
