To enable Network Address Translation (NAT) gateways to access the Internet, you must associate elastic IP addresses (EIPs) with them. After you associate a NAT gateway with an EIP, you are charged for both the NAT gateway and the EIP. This topic describes the billing method of NAT gateways.
- Billing method: pay-as-you-go. For more information, see Pay-as-you-go.
Fees are charged and bills are generated on a daily basis.
- Billing item: instance fee.
- Instance fee: NAT gateways are available in different sizes. The instance fee varies based on the size of the NAT gateway.
If an EIP is associated with an EIP bandwidth plan, a network fee is charged based on the billing method of the EIP bandwidth plan. For more information, see Billing.
