You can enable the pay-by-requester mode for your bucket. When the pay-by-requester mode is enabled, requesters pay for one or more of the following billing items based on their request content: outbound traffic over the Internet, back-to-origin traffic, and traffic generated when making API operation calls, performing Image Processing (IMG), taking video snapshots, and retrieving IA objects or archives. The bucket owner pays other fees such as storage, object tagging, and transfer acceleration fees.
