Billing Overview

Last updated: 2022-06-27 16:39:33

    Billing Mode

    CI is pay-as-you-go (postpaid).

    • Pay-as-you-go (postpaid) billing mode: Fees are charged by the actual usage. Amounts are deducted and the bill for the previous month is generated on the first day of each month. When you start using CI, it will be pay-as-you-go by default, so you do not need to purchase it.

    Pricing

    For CI pricing details, see Pricing Overview.

    As the data storage service of CI is based on COS, the storage fees will be listed on COS bills. For more information, see COS Pricing Overview.

    Amount Freezing Mechanism

    After the bill for the current month is settled, 120% of its amount will be frozen for the next month. During settlement the next month, this frozen amount will be unfrozen first for deduction.
