This will take you to a page showing the different tiers of subscriptions available for this service.  Selected your desired subscription plan.  If it is a paid plan (i.e., something other than the “Basic” tier), then the credit card on file for your Amazon.com account will be charged each month at the start of the month.  Note that if you choose the “Basic” tier, then you will not be charged for any usage upto the daily and monthly limits allowed, but usage beyond those limits will not be permitted.  If you anticipate being a heavy user of the service, we encourage you to subscribe to a paid plan.

If you are interested in using Smart Content Services, then repeat the above step(s) starting from https://auth.dataninja.net/cart?service=sc.
