VPC Endpoint provides two types of resources: VPC endpoint services and VPC endpoints. VPC endpoint services are free. VPC endpoints are classified into professional and basic VPC endpoints.

  • Professional: This newly released VPC endpoint type has been in OBT in the CN East-1 region and is charged based on the purchased duration and used traffic.

    For professional VPC endpoints, you can set its payer to the VPC endpoint service user or provider. For details, see Payer Description.

  • Basic: VPC endpoints of this original type is charged based on the purchased duration.

The billing mode for VPC endpoints is pay-per-use.

  • If the VPC endpoint is used to connect to a DNS or OBS VPC endpoint service, the VPC endpoint is free.
  • If the VPC endpoint is not used to connect to a DNS or OBS VPC endpoint service, the VPC endpoint price is calculated as follows:

    Pricing per VPC endpoint per hour x Required duration

After you purchase a VPC endpoint, you will be charged based on how many hours the VPC endpoint is retained in your account, regardless of whether the VPC endpoint connects to a VPC endpoint service or whether it interacts with the VPC endpoint service.

If the VPC endpoint service is deleted or its owner refuses your VPC endpoint, the VPC endpoint cannot be used but will still be billed. You are advised to delete the VPC endpoint in a timely manner to avoid unnecessary charges.

For details, see Product Pricing Details.

Billing Modes

Pay-per-use

Basic VPC endpoints are billed based on how long (accurate to seconds) the VPC endpoint remains provisioned in your account.

Professional VPC endpoints are billed based on how long (accurate to seconds) the VPC endpoint remains provisioned in your account and the amount of data processed.

Billing Formula

  • Basic VPC endpoints: Pricing per VPC endpoint per hour x Required duration
  • Professional VPC endpoints: Pricing per VPC endpoint per hour x Required duration + Pricing per GB of data processed x Data processed

For example, if you buy a VPC endpoint and retain it in your account for 5 hours, you will be charged for the 5 hours you keep it.

Billing starts after you purchase a VPC endpoint even if you never use it.

Payer Description

VPC Endpoint allows you to authorize other Huawei Cloud accounts to use your own VPC endpoint services. For details, see Managing Whitelist Records of a VPC Endpoint Service.

If the professional VPC endpoint you use and the VPC endpoint service it will connect to belong to different Huawei Cloud accounts, you can submit a service ticket to set the payer to the VPC endpoint service user or provider.

  • Payment made by the VPC endpoint service user (default): The VPC endpoint account pays for all fees related to the VPC endpoint.
  • Payment made by the VPC endpoint service provider: The account to which the VPC endpoint service belongs pays for all fees related to the VPC endpoints connected to it.
