    Deduction Details
    Purchase
    A traffic plan deducts your usage of LVB downstream traffic inside the Chinese mainland at a ratio of 1:1. It can also deduct usage of LVB downstream traffic outside the Chinese mainland, LEB downstream traffic inside and outside the Chinese mainland, as well as upstream traffic inside and outside the Chinese mainland at different ratios. Outside the Chinese mainland, the deduction ratio varies with region. All deductions occur only in the daily bill-by-traffic mode.
    A standard transcoding plan can deduct standard transcoding and audio transcoding durations (LVB or LEB) in the daily billing mode.
    The plan supports offsetting the daily transcoding fees generated by the Top Speed Codec Transcoding (TSC Transcoding) service for live streaming, including both Standard Live Video Broadcasting (LVB) and Live Event Broadcasting (LEB).

    Must-Knows

    The conversion factor for units of traffic/bandwidth is 1,000. For example, 1 TB = 1,000 GB.
    You need to buy plan first before they can be used for deduction.
    You can use CSS vouchers to purchase plan, but general vouchers are not applicable.
    A plan becomes valid immediately after purchase. The validity period is one year. Usage each day is deducted the following day (the actual billing time may vary). The plan that expires the soonest will be used for deduction first. If all your plan are exhausted, the additional usage will be billed daily at pay-as-you-go rates.
    You can purchase multiple plan, but the validity periods of the plan will not be added up.
    A plan cannot deduct usage that occurs the day before the plan is purchased.
    Suppose you buy a plan on December 25, 2022. On December 26, it would be used to deduct your usage on December 25 (billed on December 26), but it cannot deduct your usage on December 24 (billed on December 25).
    If you use the monthly billing mode, your plan will be frozen, and their validity will not be extended. To change to the daily billing mode, please contact your sales rep. The change will be applied the following month.
    You can refund a plan within five days of purchase if it hasn’t been used. No matter whether a plan is exhausted, it will be considered used if it was used to deduct usage. For more information about refund, see Refund Policy.

    Traffic Plan

    Deduction ratios

    A traffic plan deducts your usage of LVB downstream traffic inside the Chinese mainland at a ratio of 1:1. It can also deduct usage of LVB downstream traffic outside the Chinese mainland, LEB downstream traffic inside and outside the Chinese mainland, as well as upstream traffic inside and outside the Chinese mainland at different ratios. All deductions occur only in the daily bill-by-traffic mode. Outside the Chinese mainland, the deduction ratio varies with region.

    Billing details

    Traffic plan can deduct your traffic usage only in the daily bill-by-traffic mode. If you switch to monthly billing or daily bill-by bandwidth, the plan will be frozen, and their validity periods will not be extended.
    Upstream and downstream traffic consumed outside the Chinese mainland is deducted at different ratios depending on the region.
    Your usage of downstream traffic is deducted from traffic plan first. If your plan are exhausted, the additional usage will be billed daily at pay-as-you-go rates.

    Billing examples

    Example 1

    Suppose user A, whose billing mode is daily bill-by-traffic, bought a 10 TB CSS traffic plan on December 4, 2022 and consumed 11 TB LVB downstream traffic in the Chinese mainland on December 4, 2022. On December 5, the traffic bill generated for user A would be as follows:
    10 TB would be deducted from the traffic plan.
    The remaining 1 TB would be billed at pay-as-you-go rates, which is 0.0423 (USD/GB) x 1 x 1000 = 42.3 USD.

    Example 2

    Suppose user B consumed 100 GB LEB downstream traffic in the Chinese mainland, 50 GB LEB downstream traffic in Europe, 50 GB LEB traffic in Asia Pacific 3, 100 GB LVB downstream traffic in the Chinese mainland, 100 GB LVB downstream traffic in North America, 50 GB upstream traffic in the Chinese mainland, and 50 GB upstream traffic in Asia Pacific 1 on December 4, 2022, and the daily bill-by-traffic mode was used for LVB and LEB inside and outside the Chinese mainland. On December 5, 2022, the traffic bill generated for user B would be as follows:
    Deductible traffic usage = 100 GB x 2 + 50 GB x 5.3846 + 50 GB x 3.3846 + 100 GB + 100 GB x 1.6923 + 50 GB + 50 GB x 1.7692 = 1,046.15 GB
    If user B had a 1 TB traffic plan, the usage would be deducted in the following order:
    LEB downstream traffic in the Chinese mainland: 100 GB x 2 = 200 GB (800 GB left)
    LEB downstream traffic in Asia Pacific 3: 50 GB x 5.3846 = 269.23 GB (530.77 GB left)
    LEB downstream traffic in Europe: 50 GB x 3.3846 = 169.23 GB (361.54 GB left)
    LVB downstream traffic in the Chinese mainland: 100 GB (261.54 GB left)
    LVB downstream traffic in North America: 100 GB x 1.6923 = 169.23 GB (92.31 GB left)
    Upstream traffic in the Chinese mainland: 50 GB (42.31 GB left)
    Upstream traffic in Asia Pacific 1 = 50 GB x 1.7692 = 88.46 GB (plan exhausted). The remaining 46.15 GB upstream traffic consumed in Asia Pacific 1 would be billed at pay-as-you-go rates (which are the same as the pay-as-you-go rates for LVB downstream traffic): 0.0748 (USD/GB) x 46.15 GB = 3.45202 USD.

    Standard Transcoding plan

    Billing details

    Standard transcoding plan can only deduct standard transcoding and audio transcoding durations in the daily billing mode. If you switch to monthly billing, the plan will be frozen and their validity periods will not be extended.
    If your standard transcoding plan are exhausted, usage will be billed at pay-as-you-go rates for standard transcoding.

    How deduction works

    A standard transcoding plan deducts H.264_480P transcoding durations at a ratio of 1:1. Durations of other resolutions and audio transcoding durations are deducted at different ratios based on their pay-as-you-go rates.
    Deductible duration for a specific transcoding resolution = plan duration x Pay-as-you-go rate for H.264_480P ÷ Pay-as-you-go rate for the resolution
    Deductible duration for audio transcoding = plan duration x Pay-as-you-go rate for H.264_480P ÷ Pay-as-you-go rate for audio transcoding = plan duration x 0.0028 ÷ 0.00099

    Deduction examples

    Suppose user A bought a 100-hour standard transcoding plan at 13.43 USD.
    Deductible duration for H.264_720P transcoding = 100 (hours) x 0.0028 ÷ 0.0057 ≈ 49.122807‬ ≈ 49.12 hours
    Deductible duration for audio transcoding = 100 (hours) x 0.0028 / 0.00099 ≈ 282.828283 ≈ 282.83 hours

    TSC Transcoding plan

    The Top Speed Codec Transcoding (TSC Transcoding) plan is only applicable for TSC Transcoding usage during live streaming playback, including Standard Live Video Broadcasting (LVB), Live Event Broadcasting (LEB), and Mini Program live streaming.

    Billing details

    TSC transcoding plan can be used for deduction only in the daily billing mode. If you switch to monthly billing, the plan will be frozen and their validity periods will not be extended.
    After the Top Speed Codec Transcoding (TSC Transcoding) plan is exhausted, the excess usage will be billed according to the TSC Transcoding daily postpaid pricing.

    How deduction works

    A TSC transcoding plan deducts TSC 480p transcoding durations at a ratio of 1:1. Durations of other resolutions are deducted at different ratios based on their pay-as-you-go rates. Deductible duration for a specific transcoding resolution = Plan duration x Pay-as-you-go rate for TSC H.264_480P transcoding ÷ Pay-as-you-go rate for the resolution

    Deduction examples

    Suppose user A bought a 50-hour TSC transcoding plan (22.24 USD). The H.264_720P transcoding duration the plan can deduct would be as follows: 50 (hours) x 0.0116 ÷ 0.0222 ≈ 26.1261261 ≈ 26.13 hours

    Billing examples

    Suppose user B hosted an LVB live streaming session in Asia Pacific 1. The live stream lasted four hours and was watched by 200 people. The bitrate was 3 Mbps, the codec used was H.264, and the resolution was 1080p.
    If TSC transcoding was not used, the bandwidth cost would be: 3 Mbps x 200 x 0.1854 = 111.24 USD.
    If TSC transcoding was used to reduce the bitrate, the bandwidth cost would be: 111.24 x (100% - 30%) = 77.868 USD.
    The TSC transcoding cost incurred would be: 0.0443 x 240 = 10.632 USD (the list price is used).
    The total cost would be: 77.868 + 10.632 = 88.5 USD.
