    Unit prices of billable items

    The unit prices of billable items after this change are as described below:

    Billable Item Description Pricing Billing Cycle
    Storage usage Billed by storage usage and storage period The price in USD/GB/month is relevant to the billing cycle, where "month" refers to 30 days. If settled daily, the price needs to be converted as follows: daily unit price = monthly unit price / 30. For example, if the monthly unit price of STANDARD storage usage in Beijing region is 0.024 USD/GB/month, its daily unit price is 0.024 / 30 = 0.0008 USD/GB/day. Daily
    Request Billed by the number of requests sent to COS The price in USD/10,000 requests is irrelevant to the billing cycle. The price does not need to be converted if settled daily. For example, if the price of STANDARD read and write requests in Beijing region is 0.002 USD/10,000 requests, it remains unchanged no matter whether settled daily or monthly. Daily
    Data retrieval Billed by the actual amount of retrieved data The price in USD/GB is irrelevant to the billing cycle. The price does not need to be converted if settled daily. For example, if the price of STANDARD_IA data retrieval in Beijing region is 0.002 USD/GB, it remains unchanged no matter whether settled daily or monthly. Daily
    Note:

    • Storage usage: It will be billed by month of 30 days if settled monthly or by the actual number of days in each month if settled daily.
    • Notes on bill fluctuations: Even if the monthly usage remains the same, the storage usage fees will still fluctuate. If you use storage capacity for a whole month, the usage will be billed by 31 days for January, 28 (or 29) days for February, and 30 days for April.
