EIP association fee

EIP association fees are charged per account per region based on the following rules:
Notice Users who purchase EIPs for the first time after 00: 00 on January 15, 2020 are charged for associating EIPs with other resources. Users who have purchased EIPs before 00: 00 on January 15, 2020 can associate EIPs with other resources free of charge.
If the number of times you associate your EIPs under an account in a region within a calendar day is less than or equal to five times of the quota, no association fee is charged. If the number of times is greater than five times of the quota, you are charged at a price rate of USD 0.149 per association. Association fees are calculated and bills are generated on a daily basis.
Note The quota equals the default number of EIPs that you can hold under an account. To view the quota, see Manage quotas.

For example, you can hold 20 EIPs under an account. You can associate your EIPs under the account 100 times in each region within a calendar day free of charge. EIP association fees are charged at a price rate of USD 0.149 per association after your free quota (100 times) is exhausted. That is, USD 0.149 is charged for one additional association, and USD 1.49 is charged for 10 additional associations.
