I'm using OSM Maps with Leaflet and Leaflet GeoSearch integration for commercial (and not open source) with credit OpenStreetMap (© OpenStreetMap contributors).

Also, we are using Tile layer:

  • url: "https://{s}{z}/{x}/{y}.png"
  • attribution: '© OpenStreetMap contributors'

My reports, about the number of requests per day:

  • Maps Javascript API - max. 3000
  • Places API - max, 9000

My questions are:

  1. Could you tell me what the limitations are to use?
  2. If add as a contribution, what do I need to do?
  3. Can I use OpenStreetMaps & OpenStreetMaps API (with Leaflet) for commercial use in this scenario?

Let me know if you need anything else.

Have you considered setting up your own Tile and Nominatim servers? Then you could make as many requests as you wanted.

Is it possible to make a donation with a budget and continue to use this infrastructure? Who is responsible for it?

No, but many or most of the commercial alternatives linked from e.g. the tile access policy are also OSM supporters, so by supporting them you are supporting OSM indirectly. You can also donate to OSM, of course, you just can't "buy an SLA".

I guess this is a good place to start:

Sorry, don't know all the details, just pointing out a possible starting point to get answers to your questions.
