Elastic IP Address (EIP) supports two line types: BGP (Multi-ISP) and BGP (Multi-ISP)
Pro. Both types support the pay-as-you-go and subscription billing methods. You may
be charged an association fee when you associate a pay-as-you-go EIP or a subscription
EIP with a cloud resource.
Note BGP (Multi-ISP) is supported in all regions. BGP (Multi-ISP) Pro is supported only
in the China (Hong Kong) region.
The billable items of EIPs vary based on the billing method or metering method. The
following table describes the billable items for EIPs.
Note "-" indicates that the fee is not charged and "✔" indicates that the fee is charged.

- You are not charged a configuration fee if you associate an EIP with an Elastic Compute
Service (ECS) instance that is deployed in a virtual private cloud (VPC) or an elastic

- You are charged a configuration fee if one of the following conditions is met:
- Your EIP is not associated with a cloud resource.
- Your EIP is associated with a NAT gateway, Server Load Balancer (SLB) instance, secondary
elastic network interface (ENI), or high-availability virtual IP address (HAVIP).
You may be charged an association fee when you associate an EIP with a cloud resource.
EIP association fees are calculated based on the number of times that you associate
EIPs in a region.
Notice You are charged EIP association fees if your first-time purchase of EIPs was made
after 00:00 (UTC+8), January 15, 2020. If you purchase EIPs before 00:00 (UTC+8),
January 15, 2020, you are not charged EIP association fees.
You are charged an association fee if the number of times that you associate EIPs
in a region within one day exceeds five times the quota. If the number of times that
you associate EIPs exceeds five times the quota, you are charged USD 0.149
for each additional time that you associate EIPs. Association fees are calculated
and bills are generated on a daily basis.
The quota equals the default number of EIPs that can be owned by your Alibaba Cloud
account. For more information about how to view the quota, see Manage quotas
If your account can own at most 20 EIPs, you can associate EIPs 100 times in each
region within one day free of charge. If you associate EIPs more than 100 times, you
are charged USD 0.149 for each additional time that you associate EIPs. For example, if you associate EIPs
101 times in a region within one day, the association fee is USD 0.149. If you associate EIPs 110 times in a region within one day, the association fee
is USD 1.49.
