Billing example

Scenario: The live center of User A is in Singapore. User A uses automated review to process 66,000 images on August 17, 2021. 30,000 images that contain pornographic content are detected and 36,000 images that contain ad violations are detected.

Pricing:
  • For the 30,000 image that contain pornographic content, the price is USD 0.45 per 1,000 images.
  • For the 36,000 images that contain ad violations, the price is USD 0.77 per 1,000 images.

Automated review fees that are generated on August 17, 2021: USD 0.45 × (30,000/1,000) + USD 0.77 × (36,000/1,000) = USD 41.22. The bills are generated after 00:00 on August 18, 2021, and the fees are automatically deducted.
