    Billing Mode

    TencentDB for PostgreSQL offers the following two billing modes:

    Billing Mode Payment Mode Application Scenario
    Pay as you go In this postpaid billing mode, you can apply for resources for on-demand use and will be charged based on the actual usage at the billing time. It is suitable for instantaneously fluctuating businesses. In this mode, instances can be released immediately after the use so as to reduce the costs.

    A linear pricing schedule is used for pay-as-you-go disks. The unit prices for different regions are as follows:

    Region Unit Price (USD/GB/Hour)
    Guangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu, Chongqing, Tianjin, Shenzhen 0.0005
    Hong Kong (China), Singapore, Seoul, Mumbai 0.00024
    Toronto, Frankfurt 0.00028
    Silicon Valley, Virginia 0.00019
    Moscow, Tokyo 0.00031

    Depending on the usage duration, the prices for pay-as-you-go memory are divided into three tiers:

    Usage Duration Tiered Pricing
    0 hours < duration ≤ 96 hours Tier 1 pay-as-you-go price applies
    96 hours < duration ≤ 360 hours Tier 2 pay-as-you-go price applies
    Duration > 360 hours Tier 3 pay-as-you-go price applies

    The unit prices per tier for different regions are as follows:

    Region Tier 1 (USD/GB/Hour) Tier 2 (USD/GB/Hour) Tier 3 (USD/GB/Hour)
    Frankfurt, Silicon Valley 0.055 0.041 0.028
    Russia, Japan, Mumbai, Seoul 0.056 0.042 0.028
    Singapore 0.07 0.053 0.035
    Hong Kong (China) 0.069 0.052 0.034
    Virginia 0.044 0.033 0.022
    Toronto 0.074 0.055 0.037
    Guangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu, Chongqing, Tianjin, Shenzhen 0.052 0.039 0.026

    Instance Price

    Billing formula

    Total fees = memory specification fees + storage capacity fees + backup capacity fees + traffic fees

    Billable items

    Billable Item Description
    Memory specification fees
    Fees of the instance specification selected on the purchase page.
    Storage capacity fees Fees of the disk capacity selected on the purchase page.
    Backup capacity fees TencentDB for PostgreSQL offers a free tier of backup capacity based on the region, which is equivalent to 50% of the total storage capacity of all the instances in your region.
    Excessive backup capacity is free of charge currently.
    Traffic fees Fees of public network traffic (free of charge for now).

    Billing Example

    Assume that you purchase a pay-as-you-go TencentDB for PostgreSQL instance with a memory size of 8 GB and disk capacity of 500 GB in the Guangzhou region and use it for 24 hours.
    The fees for the current month are calculated as follows:
    Instance price = memory specification fees + storage capacity fees = 0.0005 USD/GB/hour * 500 GB * 24 hours + 0.052 USD/GB/hour * 8 GB * 24 hours = 15.984 USD
