This topic provides answers to the frequently asked questions (FAQ) about Content Moderation billing.

How am I charged for the Content Moderation service based on the pay-as-you-go billing method?

The Content Moderation API and the OSS violation detection feature support the pay-as-you-go billing method. The daily fee is settled based on the amount of data moderated on that day. For more information, see Daily fee calculation method.

For more information about the details of the pay-as-you-go billing method in Content Moderation, see Pricing.

Will the Content Moderation service be suspended if the service fee is overdue?

Alibaba Cloud generates a bill on each calendar day based on the number of resources that you used on the previous calendar day. Alibaba Cloud deducts the service fee accordingly from your Alibaba Cloud account. If you have purchased a subscription plan or pay-as-you-go plan, the resources used are first deducted from your resource plan. If the remaining resources in the plan are insufficient, the service fee is deducted from your account. If your account balance is insufficient to pay the bill and your account has an overdue payment for more than 24 hours, Alibaba Cloud stops providing the Content Moderation service for you.
