Deduction

The billing system calculates your fee for the previous hour and generates a bill at the beginning of each hour. Then, the actual fee is deducted from the balance of your Alibaba Cloud account.

For example, the billing system bills you at 09:30 for the charges that are generated from 08:00 to 09:00.
Note If your usage is less than 1 GB in an hour, the system bills you for 1 GB. For example, if your usage in an hour is less than 1 GB, the billing system sends you a bill of CNY 0.8 for 1 GB at the beginning of the next hour. If your usage in each hour within one day is less than 1 GB, the billing system sends you a daily bill of CNY 19.2 for 24 GB at most.

Overdue payments

If your Alibaba Cloud account has an overdue payment, you are given a 360-hour grace period and the billing system sends you notifications at the 192nd, 288th, and 336th hours. After you receive a notification, you must add funds to your Alibaba Cloud account as soon as possible.
  • If your bill is overdue for more than 360 hours, the service will be suspended. At this time, instances that have not been run cannot be started, but instances that have been started can run until they are finished.
  • If you add funds to your Alibaba Cloud account within 360 hours after your bill becomes overdue, the service will not be suspended.
  • If the service payment becomes overdue again after settlement, you are given another 360-hour grace period before the service is suspended.
