    • The generated screenshots are stored in COS and will incur COS storage fees. For details, please see COS Pricing.
    • Screencapture is a paid feature. The first 1,000 screenshots of each month are free. Any additional screenshots taken will incur fees.

    Billing Example

    Suppose you used the live screencapture service from January 1 to February 1, 2021, and a total of 168,000 screenshots were generated during the month. Then, the live screencapture fees you would need to pay on February 2, 2021 would be as follows:
    Live screencapture fees for January = 0.0176 (USD/Thousand screenshots) × (168 - 1) Thousand screenshots = 2.9392 USD.
