Billing Methods

• Billing Method: Pay by Hourly Traffic

• Payment Rule: Different regions apply to different tier price ( calculated on a calendar month basis )

• Billing Cycle: Pay by traffic will be charged hourly ( 2-3 hours delay ).

Example of how data usage (in mainland China) is billed on an hourly basis
From May 1 to May 15, the total amount of data usage is 51200 GB. The price rate is 0.04 USD per GB ( 0 GB – 50 TB pricing tier ).
From 00:00:00 on May 16 to 01:00:00 on May 16, the total amount of data usage is 1000 GB.
The remaining 1000 GB falls into the 50 TB – 100 TB pricing tier. The price rate is USD 0.03 per GB.
The total fee for the 52200 GB of data usage is: 51200 GB ×USD 0.04 + 1000 GB × USD 0.03 = USD 2078

The bill is issued after the billing cycle ends. Typically, the bill is issued approximately three hours after the billing cycle ends. The system determines when bills are issued. After a bill is issued, relevant fees are automatically deducted from the balance in your account.
The conversion rate between a smaller data storage unit and a larger unit is 1024. For example, 1 GB equals 1024 MB.

Note: To avoid causing a loss to users due to abnormal and malicious traffic, the upper bandwidth limit for Pay-By-Traffic is set to 10 Gbps by default. To change the billing method, submit a ticket or contact your business manager.

Billing rules

• Billed item: outbound traffic.

• You can choose a target region from eight available regions to accelerate the content delivery.

• A data transfer plan can be used only by the Alibaba Cloud account that purchased the plan.

• Multiple data transfer plans are sorted in ascending order of expiration time. The plan with the least remaining validity days has higher payment priority.
