  • MaxCompute sends messages to notify you of the size of downloaded data and provides you with the bill the next day.
  • The size of downloaded data refers to the size of an HTTP body for one download request. The HTTP body in which the data is sent uses protobuffer encoding. Therefore, the size of the downloaded data is generally less than the original data size. However, it is greater than the size of compressed data stored on MaxCompute.
  • Different billing methods are applicable to different network environments such as the Internet, classic network, or VPC, as well as to different regions. For more information about MaxCompute connections, see Configure endpoints.
