EMR supports the pay-as-you-go and subscription billing methods. If you create an EMR cluster but do not clearly understand its effect, we recommend that you choose pay-as-you-go to pay only for what you use. When you are ready to make a long-term commitment, you can switch to subscription.
- The billing method of the cluster is pay-as-you-go.
- All orders with the billing method switched are paid.
You are not allowed to switch the billing method from subscription to pay-as-you-go.
- Log on to the Alibaba Cloud E-MapReduce console.
- In the top navigation bar, select the region where your cluster resides.
- Click the Cluster Management tab.
- On the Cluster Management page that appears, find the target cluster and click Details in the Actions column.
- On the Cluster Overview page that appears, click Change Configuration in the upper-right corner and select Switch to Subscription.
- In the Switch to Subscription dialog box that appears, select E-MapReduce Service Terms and click OK.
The billing method of the cluster is switched to subscription.
