How am I charged for using NAT gateways?
To enable Internet access for a NAT gateway, you must associate an elastic IP address (EIP) with the NAT gateway. You are charged for using NAT gateways and EIPs that are associated with the NAT gateways. For more information, see Billing overview.
What is the metering method for pay-as-you-go NAT gateways?
For a pay-as-you-go NAT gateway, the pay-by-specification metering method is used to meter and bill the usage based on the size of the gateway. You are charged a fixed fee for the NAT gateway after each billing cycle. For more information, see Pay-by-specification.
