Validity period

  • The validity period of every resource plan in an ApsaraVideo VOD package is one year.
  • The validity period of each resource plan is separately calculated. The validity periods of multiple resource plans cannot be accumulated.
  • After a resource plan is purchased or expires, the remaining traffic resources in the resource plan cannot be unsubscribed or refunded.
  • When a resource plan is about to expire, the system sends text messages, emails, or internal messages to remind you to use the remaining resources before expiration.

Deduction method

An ApsaraVideo VOD package contains multiple resource plans, such as transcoding plans, storage plans, and data transfer plans. Within the validity period, resources in a resource plan can be deducted. Resources in a resource plan that will first expire are deducted first. When resources in all resource plans are deducted, the billing method is automatically changed to pay-as-you-go.
