Outbound data transfer plan

Data transfer plans can be used to offset data transfer fees.
Notice If you want to use data transfer plans to offset data transfer fees, the metering method of Alibaba Cloud CDN must be pay-by-data-transfer. If the metering method is pay-by-bandwidth, the unconsumed quota in the plan will be suspended until the metering method is changed to pay-by-data-transfer.

You can purchase multiple outbound data transfer plans. The data transfer plans are applied in chronological order of expiration time. The system calculates the amount of outbound data transfer on an hourly basis. Your data transfer plans are automatically used to offset data transfer fees. Data transfer overage is billed on a pay-as-you-go basis.

Outbound data transfer plans are classified into eight types based on the accelerated region. Each data transfer plan takes effect only in the accelerated region that you specify when you purchase the data transfer plan.
