Billing

You pay only for what you use. Each billing item is charged separately based on your usage.

Billing Items

The billing items of the Live service include traffic/bandwidth (by traffic, peak bandwidth, or 95th percentile bandwidth), transcoding, recording, and snapshot capturing. Each billing item has different billing modes. For details, see Table 1. For more information about pricing, see Live Pricing Details.

Payment Option

Traffic/Bandwidth

  • By traffic
  • By daily peak bandwidth
  • By 95th percentile bandwidth

Pay-per-use

Transcoding

You are billed based on the duration of the content you output.

Pay-per-use

Recording

  • Monthly recording: You are billed based on the peak number of concurrent recording channels in a month.
  • Recording storage: You will be billed based on the used storage space. If recordings are stored in an OBS bucket, you will be billed by OBS.

Pay-per-use

Snapshot capturing

  • Snapshot capturing: You will be billed by Live based on the number of captured snapshots.
  • Snapshot storage: You will be billed by OBS based on the storage space you use.

Pay-per-use

Billing Modes

Pay-per-use: In each billing cycle, the system calculates the fee based on the actual usage of each resource multiplied by the unit price, and then deducts the fee from your account balance.

Renewal

Pay-per-use resources cannot be renewed. You only need to ensure that your account balance is sufficient.

Expiration and Overdue Payment

  • Arrears: In pay-per-use mode, fees are deducted based on each billing item. If the account balance is insufficient, the system fails to deduct the fees of the previous billing cycle. As a result, your account is in arrears, and a retention period will start. During the retention period, you cannot use the Live service, but your data configured in Live will be retained. If the outstanding fees are still not paid off when the retention period ends, your data will be deleted and can no longer be recovered. For details, see Service Suspension and Resource Release.
  • Expiration: Pay-per-use resources do not expire.
