The $750/month is well worth it to organizations with billions in revenue, wishing to protect user data. Better to route all traffic through an API gateway, and exposing all of your micro services on the public internet.

Everyone has to communicate through the API gateway. Then, you get a single point where things are easily auditable.

It has a lot of benefits that apply to business use cases. Your free API may not have as strict requirements.

It sounds like you’re making an excuse why you’re overpaying for API Gateway yourself.

You can easily deploy Kong/Tyk these days for peanuts and have your own single point of entry, without AWS API Gateway’s insane pricing.
