Elastic IP Address (EIP) supports two line types: BGP (Multi-ISP) and BGP (Multi-ISP)
Pro. Both types support the pay-as-you-go and subscription billing methods. You may
be charged when you associate a pay-as-you-go EIP or a subscription EIP with a cloud
Note BGP (Multi-ISP) is supported in all regions. BGP (Multi-ISP) Pro is supported only
in the China (Hong Kong) region.
The billable items of EIPs vary based on the billing method. The following table describes
the billable items for EIPs.

Service (ECS) instance that is deployed in a virtual private cloud (VPC).

EIP association fee
You may be charged an EIP association fee based on the number of times that you associate
Notice EIP association fees apply to users whose first-time purchases of EIPs are made after
00:00 (UTC+8), January 15, 2020. If you have purchased an EIP before 00:00 (UTC+8),
January 15, 2020, you are not charged an association fee for the EIPs that you purchased
before and after the time.
Alibaba Cloud provides daily quotas for users of EIPs. You are charged an association
fee if the number of times that you associate EIPs exceeds the daily quota. The daily
quota is calculated by using the formula: The number of times that you can use an
account to associate EIPs with resources in a region = 5 × N (Number of EIPs that
belong to the account). If the number of times that you associate EIPs exceeds the
daily quota,the association fee is calculated by using the formula: Association fee
= (Number of times that you associate EIPs - Daily quota) × USD 0.149
. Association fees are calculated and bills are generated on a daily basis.
The number of times that you can associate EIPs in a region is five times the number
of the EIPs that belong to your account. For more information about how to view the
daily quota, see Manage quotas
For example, if your account has 20 EIPs, you can associate EIPs 100 times in each
region within a calendar day. In this case, you are not charged an association fee.
If you associate EIPs more than 100 times, you are charged an association fee.If you
associate EIPs 101 times, the association fee is USD 0.149.If you associate EIPs 110 times, the association fee is USD 1.49.You are charged USD 0.149 for each additional number of times that exceeds 100.
