Alibaba Cloud ApsaraDB for Redis provides two billing methods: Monthly/annually payment and pay-by-flow method. The latter can be converted to the former. The configuration of the two mode can be changed.

Background

Changing the instance configuration incurs a change in charges. For more information about the billing standard, see ApsaraDB for Redis pricing.
