Cloud development provides a wealth of cloud services for you. You can subscribe to the pay-as-you-go cloud services as you want.

It is important to know that a basic resource pack is a mandatory prerequisite to using cloud services. The basic resource pack you have purchased provides the quota of API calls and message services, and also determines the service price if your monthly usage exceeds the quota.

Billing example

The quota of the basic resource pack will be refreshed every month. You will not be subject to additional fees without exceeding the monthly quota. The excess usage will be billed based on actual usage. The billing examples are described as follows.

Example 1

Account A of Standard Edition calls APIs 30 million times a month from Plan 1 and subscribes to 100 million messages.

Monthly fee:

  • API calls: 30 million times × USD3.52 per million times = USD105.60
  • Message subscription: 100 million messages × USD1.39 per million messages = USD139.00

The total fee is 105.60 + 139.00 = USD244.6, which is within the USD300 limit. No additional fees are billed.

Example 2

Account B of Standard Edition calls APIs 30 million times a month from Plan 1 and subscribes to 300 million messages.

Monthly fee:

  • API calls: 30 million times × USD3.52 per million times = USD105.60
  • Message subscription: 300 million messages × USD1.39 per million messages = USD417.00

The total fee is 105.60 + 417.00 = USD522.60. After the USD300 subscription limit is deducted, an additional fee of USD222.60 is billed.
