Billing Rules

According to different user requirements, JD Cloud provides two types of **Monthly Package (Pay-in-Advance) and ** Pay by Configuration(Pay-as-You-Go) based on the configurations

Monthly Package

Monthly package refers to purchase resource according to designated duration, charging according to the resource configuration you have purchased and the duration, it adopts the method of pay in advance. E.g., you can pay for resource of one month, multiple months or multiple years at a time. In the duration you have purchased, you can use the resource all the time and need not to pay any more, unless you need to change your configuration or renew after expiration;


If you have purchased cloud resource for 6 months at 10:00:00 on August 2, 2018, with the unit price of RMB 56, you need to pay RMB 336=6*56 and you can use this resource till 23:59:59 on February 2, 2019;
