Only process certain pages
One feature that would help me actually is to say that only the first page (or any page X) should be processed….
I have some PDFs that are 20 pages long, where I actually only want page 1 to be processed, the rest could be omitted in this case….

This would be helpful indeed.
More context from my use case: We get PDFs where the last pages are terms and conditions. We have no interest to process and use quota on these.
Sorry for jumping into solutioning here :X but just an idea: The labels could be used to reference the page where the parsing should stop.
Interesting suggestion, thanks.
As a workaround for your use case, you could split the document into single pages and use a mandatory label to detect the last page with the T&C, then skip the rest of the pages (using Skip templates). Skipped documents don't count toward your credits.
As for the solution you suggested: Using labels to reference the page means that we need to process the document entirely on our side, which would incurr the same costs as parsing all pages.
This might not make sense to charge for 1 page while incurring the costs for all the pages (some documents have hundreds of pages).
Though you could argue that the current solution (skipping pages) also incurr costs for us for all pages, and you would be right.
Another possibility would be to select the pages to keep by giving you an option to count from the end of the document.
For you it would allow to only process the last page.
