After you activate Real ID, you can use the features provided by Real ID. This topic describes the billing methods, billable items, pricing, and settlement and billing cycles of each solution and integration mode in Real ID.

Billing methods

Pay-as-you-go

Real ID supports the pay-as-you-go billing method. Fees are generated on a daily basis.

If you select the pay-as-you-go method, take note of the pricing and the metering method of each solution and integration mode. Fees are generated based on standard unit prices.

Settlement cycle

You are charged every day for Real ID from 00:00:00 on December 25, 2019.

Alibaba Cloud generates a bill on each calendar day based on the number of resources that you used on the previous calendar day and deducts the service fee from your Alibaba Cloud account.

Billing cycle

Bills are generated on a daily basis. Alibaba Cloud generates a bill on each calendar day based on the number of resources that you used on the previous calendar day. In most cases, a bill is generated within 10 to 12 hours after the end of each calendar day. If your Alibaba Cloud account does not have sufficient balance to settle the bill, an overdue payment is generated for Real ID.

Note
  • You can visit the Bill Details page to view bills.
  • Bills for Real ID are generated after you use resources. As a result, the system may include the bill for the last day of a month in the bill of the next month. For example, the bill that is generated for January 2022 may include the bill for the period from December 31, 2021 to January 30, 2022.

Overdue payments

If your Alibaba Cloud account has overdue payments, Real ID is suspended. You must add funds to your Alibaba Cloud account to continue using Real ID.
