This document describes the two purchase methods of ECM: console and API.
After logging in to the ECM console, you can create an ECM module and deploy ECM instances on an edge node to purchase the ECM service.
ECM has two billable items: computing storage and network bandwidth. For more information, see Billing Overview.
You can purchase ECM in the console in the following steps:
- After ECM instances are created, they will be billed by the resource usage; therefore, ensure that your account balance is sufficient. Insufficient balance may cause overdue payment and instance repossession. For more information, see Payment Overdue.
- You can purchase ECM instances based on your actual needs by referring to Billing Overview.
You can purchase ECM through an API as instructed in the API document for instance creation.
