Your account balance is insufficient.
Subscription: Your account balance is insufficient to pay for subscription fees.
Pay-as-you-go: Your account balance is less than the bill amount of the previous billing cycle. If the system fails to deduct fees, your account enters the overdue state.
In PAI, bills are generated 2 to 4 hours after the previous billing cycle ends. Therefore, your resources are stopped 2 to 4 hours after your account enters the overdue state.
To ensure service continuity, we recommend that you renew your instances at the earliest opportunity.
