EIP association fee

You may be charged an EIP association fee based on the number of times that you associate EIPs.
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.
Note 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.
