Last Updated: Jan 19, 2021

Pricing

The fee required to renew an Artificial Intelligence Recommendation (AIRec) instance is the same as that required to purchase an AIRec instance. For more information about pricing, see Pricing and Billing for elastic QPS.

Fee deduction time

  • Auto-renewal

1. The fee for using an AIRec instance is deducted for the first time at 08:00 of the ninth day before the instance expires. If you plan to pay the fee by using a credit card, make sure that your credit card has sufficient balance. The system deducts the fee for auto-renewal each day during the nine days before the instance expires until the payment for the auto-renewal is completed. You must manually renew your instance if the instance is about to expire the next day. 2. If you manually renew your instance before the auto-renewal fee is deducted, the system automatically renews the instance the next time before the expiration date.
