    ABBYY Cloud OCR SDK supports full-page and field-level recognition modes, and there are two units of measure in which our service can bill an account. The first one is the unit named A4 page, it is actual for the full-page recognition methods. And the second one is named Field, it is actual for field-level recognition methods. Our service estimates 1 A4 page as 5 Fields. Thus, the credits attribute contains the cost of processing in the Fields units. This is also mentioned in our documentation in the description of the service response: 

    credits – specifies the cost of processing: it contains the estimated cost before task processing, and the actual cost, after the task has been completed. The measurement unit is the price of processing of one field.
