Billing Overview

Last updated: 2024-01-31 16:39:39

    Billing Modes

    CI is pay-as-you-go (postpaid).
    Fees are charged by the actual usage. Amounts are deducted and the bill for the previous month is generated on the first day of each month. When you start using CI, you will be charged on a pay-as-you-go basis by default, so you do not need to purchase it.


    For CI pricing details, see Pricing Overview.
    As the data storage service of CI is based on Cloud Object Storage (COS), the storage fees will be listed on COS bills. For more information, see COS Pricing Overview.

    Amount Freezing Mechanism

    After the bill for the current month is settled, 120% of its amount will be frozen for the next month. During settlement the next month, this frozen amount will be unfrozen first for deduction.
