Artificial Intelligence Recommendation:Instance renewal

Last Updated:Sep 07, 2023


The fee required to renew an Artificial Intelligence Recommendation (AIRec) instance is the same as that required to purchase an AIRec instance. For more information about pricing, see Pricing.


The trial edition can only be used for one month and cannot be renewed after it expires. If you want to continue using the instance, you need to upgrade it to a standard edition.

Fee deduction time

  • Auto-renewal

1. The fee for using an AIRec instance is deducted for the first time at 08:00 of the ninth day before the instance expires. If you plan to pay the fee by using a credit card, make sure that your credit card has sufficient balance. The system deducts the fee for auto-renewal each day during the nine days before the instance expires until the payment for the auto-renewal is completed. You must manually renew your AIRec instance if the instance is about to expire the next day.

2. If you have manually renewed your AIRec instance before the renewal fees are automatically deducted, no renewal fees are automatically deducted until next time the expiration date approaches.

  • Manual renewal

When you renew your AIRec instance, you need to manually pay for them.

You can manually renew your AIRec instance before it expires or within seven days after it expires.
